Really.... Highlight the word "easier" - By that logic God made us - then what made God? and what made whatever made God? and what made whatever made
whatever made God? Do you see me point - maybe we don't understand the beginning because we look at everything linear - as our perception of time is
linear - so we search for a beginning, a start, thus a creating a creator - but that view as whole is skewed. Maybe there was never a beginning and
there will never be an end, just a circle.
"The more we learn the more we realize we know nothing" - (cant remember)
Even if there is no beginning or end there is still order and a kind of code all matter/energy follows.
I'm agnostic, but I believe that "code" is what many interpret as God. That doesn't mean the code is separate from matter, but coupled with matter.
You can't have matter without the code and you can't have code without matter. It's a lot like with and without, nothing and something, light and
darkness, genetics and environment. One can't be defined without the other. The code is the foundation of matter, but without matter the foundation is
And consciousness is the result of the two interactions. That means consciousness permeates through matter at all levels, which, more than likely, is
much bigger than we can comprehend. Humans, like I stated above, are a highly complex form of consciousness (well some of us anyway), just as a cell
is a more complex form of consciousness than an atom. But on the other hand, we can't possibly be the highest form of consciousness in the universe...
Or multiverse. And nothing can be beyond the code. Hence the idea of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence.
"Living" cells developing out of this code is no more mysterious to me than quarks coming together soon after the big bang to form atoms, and atoms
coming together to form molecules. Everything that exists follows the code and the code is in everything that exists., including us, which is a
beautiful thing if you think about it.
The kingdom of heaven is within.
