Do people that believe in a God ever wonder who created Him, and so on...? I question the beginning and end equally.. If you was to divide 2 into 100, where does it end? How far out does space go? Just curious!
When about 15 I asked Mom, Dad wasn't around, "How was God created?" and she said, "He just always was." I then asked, "Why couldn't the Universe always be?" She had no answer, and said, "It's just the way it is." My thought, Ignorant answer.
I also asked, "If a Chinese baby born to non-Christian parents never hears about Christ, what happens if it dies before it can speak?" (There were news reports of Chinese babies starving at the time, circa 1959. She said, "The baby goes to hell because it wasn't Baptized." My next question, "Why does God punish innocent babies?" She: "That's the way it is." My thought, Ignorant answer.
Those questions sealed my conversion from Christian to agnostic.
Rulers of countries created god to keep people in line and used god as a scare tactic that is still used today! In the old days they would sacrifice people to the gods and in more recent practices they used animals! Now they just use fear and the threat of an eternity in fire as god loves everyone!lmao
The Kalām Cosmological Argument is considered one of the better arguments in favor of an eternal God, though I find it to be flawed in a couple of significant ways. The argument basically says that anything that begins to exist must have a cause, asserts that the universe began to exist, and concludes that there must therefore be an uncaused cause, arguing that an infinite series of causes is impossible. William Lane Craig's apologetics hinges on this argument, and he expands it to describe this eternal cause to be the infinite God of Christianity. The chief reason I find the KCA to be unconvincing is that it assumes that causality as we know it is the same outside the universe despite time as we understand it likely being an emergent property of the universe itself. I also think there are a number of other assumptions made, e.g., that the universe began to exist (as it is, we don't know a lot about the origin of the universe or whether the hot, dense ball of material always existed), or that an uncaused cause would necessarily be sentient. William Lane Craig makes his case not just for an uncaused cause but also for it being the Judeo-Christian God, though his justification for that (in debates I've seen) is ultimately that there's a measure of faith and revealed truth involved. I find the entire argument to be quite unsatisfying, but many scholarly people accept it as profound and even airtight logic.
Human created god of course. Most believer believe everything was created by a god that wasnt. This doesnt make any sense if human needed a create because they think we are too complex to come exist by nature process. By default god would be more complex and would also need a creator.
Human have a increaditable need to know everything and a god solves this problem. If i don't know therefore god did it.
They just blindly accept this without question.
There a story i believe it in greek mythology that talks about a goodness that created yaweh
People who needed an explanation, in the absence of scientific inquiry or recorded history, for the natural phenomena that affected and controlled their lives. This also describes those that continue to "believe" in religion and other magical constructs.
I have had this argument with "believers" before, and some of them well educated and highly intelligent. They tell me that god must exist because the world exists. I ask them, "why?" the answer by pointing to the building that we are standing in and saying, "Someone had to build this. It didn't create itself. Someone had to design and build us, too, and that was God". I respond, "OK, that's reasonable. So, who created God?" Their answer: "no one created God. God has always existed." I say, "don't you see the paradox in that? You tell me all of this is too complex to exist without a designer, yet you tell me that the most complex thing I can imagine exists eternally and without a creator. That makes no sense at all." Their answer is that there is no paradox because of faith. "So you believe it just because you want to?" I can no longer follow them after that.
