If you read all the works of Shakespeare, will you find him there in his works?

If you search all the universe, will you find God?

Please think before you spew your subjective nonsense.

Update:

Alan, I command you. At least you understood the essence of the question.

Update 2:

Perhaps the point didn't cross as I intended. The Bible claims that God created the heaven and the earth. So did Shakespeare, his works. When we read Shakespeare, we find him there in the pages. Who he is and how marvelous his works are. In a same sense, the universe. From its grandure and infinite space, we find God, his character, his marvelousness...

Update 3:

Can you really say that about God? When humans are capable of such love and beauty in this vast emptiness and isolated space? Doesn't a light burn brighter in a dark room rather that a room occupied with bunch of other lights?

    God is everywhere. He is in the universe, on earth, in heaven and in us. He is all powerful, all knowing and can be with all of us at the same time. We read this in his word. We know God by studying his word. We find out more about him in every page of the Bible we read.

    We can not actually see God. Even Moses in Exodus 36 Moses could not look at God.

    1 John 4:11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

    So we don't have to seek the Universe to find God for those of us who study His word find in there. We know all there is to know about God for he tells us. We will see God when we get to heaven.

    I don't think you can say the same about Shakespeare. We read his works but he does not reveal himself like God reveals himself in the Bible.

    Since virtually nothing is known about Shakespeare himself, this question is without answer.

    But that is apt, since the exact same thing applies to any God that might exist.

    But, if the creation reflects the creator, then God is cold, almost completely empty, and practically devoid of intelligence.

    "the universe. From its grandure and infinite space, we find God, his character, his marvelousness..."

    Last I heard, flattery didn't get you into heaven. Or are you really such a hopeless romantic? Just because something is big and has a lot of glittery lights, it is not divine. If that was true, Las Vegas would be the Vatican.

    The first problem with your argument is that no one can search all the universe. In theory someone might find God in a galaxy 10 billion light years away from us. Of course, the natural question to ask is what is God doing there? Perhaps he is hiding?

    The more important second problem with your question, which is a bit ironic, is that a literal fundamentalist would interpret your question as a metaphor. And they would say that they find God everywhere, meaning something quite different than what you mean. So you will not accomplish much by asking your question.

    Yes you will. You will find his spirit, his love for the stage, his love of the written word. However, you can search the universe and never find god. You should look closer to home for that.
