I think a major idea that everyone has overlooked is the fact that no one knows what it is like to be dead. If you are alive, then you do not truly
understand what it is like to be dead and therefore cannot comment on the difference between death and life, to any real degree of accuracy. With
this being said, you cannot make the assumption that everything in life must be created. If anything, science has proven that nothing is created.
The only thing that occurs is manipulation of what's already available. To say that matter was created is really to say that energy was manipulated.
To bake a cake is to mix ingredients. To burn a log means to make fertile ash for growing plants. Nothing is really created or destroyed that we
have proof of, so maybe your premise is wrong.
Who created God? ... Well, who created anything? Why does everyone have the assumption that nothing existed "in the beginning" and then something
else came along to create life. Who says that is necessarily true? Existence and creation are not the same thing. We have proof of existence, but
we do not have proof of creation. There is a religion that believes existence is all that "is." There is no such thing as non-existence... if
there was, you wouldn't know about it because it wouldn't exist. Therefore, using simple rules of logic, the only thing that exists for sure is
existence itself, which you have proof of or you would not exist.
The only real problem that humans have is trying to determine what makes something exist. If you think about a pencil that is yellow, has a #2 on it,
an eraser, and is sharpened... then you think of a second pencil with all the same qualities except that fact that the second one "exists".........
your mind has a problem. What is the characteristic of existence. Well, I'll leave that up to you to think on.
A few other things to re-evaluate:
Is "nothing" really nothing?
Is existence a physical quality?
Is a thought a physical quality?
Does a thought determine existence?
If time and space (or "spacetime" for you smart physicists) are dimensions, what makes up dimensions?
If there is no purpose to life then what is the purpose of having purpose?
Which came first, the "cause" or the "effect?"
Are "cause" and "effect" the same thing?
If you accept yourself as being as powerful as God, how powerful do you now become,... and more importantly, how poweful does your new idea of God
Remember to remove those barriers in your thinking and to find proof for the smallest issues in life or you have no basis to even be speaking.
