Nope, they only need realize that higher power, just like higher complexity requires more cause to exist than the lower levels of power and
complexity.. In fact, just as nine apples can't exist without the other 8, higher power can't exist without all the lower powers that support it.
Hence, the most important part of anything, including power, is the foundation and that which gives power in the first place. And if the ants were
educated enough, they too would realize that even the big powerful being thinking it's god would be delusional at best. Power doesn't make you a
GOD..Especially when you rely on that power to be anything at all. And existence itself is the totality of power from the ground foundation to the
highest possible level.. It's the entire spectrum that includes me, those ants, and anything else. The point of why the concept of GOD is moot is
also to show why there is no real need or necessity to bother with the concept at all. In reality it's just a concept / belief and nothing more.
edit on 31-7-2012 by TheJackelantern because: (no reason given)
if a king is a king of a country because he possess the most power over the people of that country,,, sets the laws,, originally perhaps it was a man
or a clan that organized the country into a country under his/their rule,,,,,,,
a god is a god of a universe because he possesses the most power of that universe,,, sets the laws,,, and dont get caught up with the definitions and
actual truth of this god for that we cannot know right now,,,, "God" could be an ancient race of highly advanced "forms",,, its not necessarily a
sacred spiritual mystical mad scientist invisible human ultimate dictator,,,, god is just a word used to describe that unknowable item which allowed
the quantity of energy of the universe to exist and organize,,,, I attempt to see it from all sides,,,, and i am intuitively urged to partially accept
that an intelligence did organize this universe in its matter even if for the most general and specific of reasons or not,,, but out of infinite ways
existence can take on,,, it has taken on this one for a relevant reason,,,,,,, I have a hard time comprehending the other side,,, everything by
accident orchestrated order and construction,, intelligence can only exist in the bite sized quantity of the human light sponge,,,, why cannot the
primal format of your "E" (existence) be consciousness,,,,, if via big bang theory it is proposed all energy was at one point together at one
point,, why could it not be this energy was connected in the way that we know our intelligence to be connected,,, why could that pre big bang state
not be "gods" mind?
