I'd like to think so and because of that, I am a Christian but I havent been able to get an answer for one question that ive been wondering a long time.
Assuming God does exist, how did "he" come to exist? Does "God", whomever you may want him to be have a creator? If everything has a beginning then it would only make sense that "God" would too right?
I find it strange to think that a being could just "create" itself. I also find it hard to accept that there is only one singular supreme being (in the sense of the Christian religion) that holds sway over the entire universe. I mean we already know the universe is HUGE; some people think it's limitless, some people think it's defined with boundaries, but considering the scope and magnitude of the universe, it's hard to accept the fact that our "God" is indeed "the" supreme being when it would appear that "he" apparantly only holds dominion over humans on earth (as far as we know). I mean, if there are sentient life forms 3 trillion light years away that are advanced as we are and they also worship a "God", do you think theirs is different or they worshipping the same "God(s)" that we are?
Also, the planet has pretty much been proven to be billions of years old and humans didnt exist until roughly about 2-4 million years ago. What was "God" doing for the roughly 14-16 billion years before human existance? It makes me wonder if the "God(s)" that we worship are exactly as the scriptures (to whatever religion) says so. Could our "Gods" be a little more complicated than the scriptures say? Keep in mind that the people who wrote the scriptures were limited in their thought capacity and knowledge compared to modern day people so it makes me wonder if our "Gods" are exactly the way as we have been brought up to believe.
Dont get me wrong, I am a Christian, and I DO believe in a creator but I wonder if things are totally different than how we've been brought up to believe. I reject the idea that there is no "creator" at the least. The universe is all too complex to be some random occurance and the simple fact that life came to exist on this planet under the most "perfect" of cicumstances leads me to believe that somehow, someway, "somebody" created us. All that exists came to be by some cause and I feel that whatever is the "cause" is the path to discovering "God".
Without me exposing my mind any furthur,( cause I could go on for hours
) what do the rest of you think? Does anyone else feel this way?
