But the main thing I have a problem with is "where did god come from?" If "god" can create itself from nothing then what's stopping anything else from being created from nothing?...like us?...
Perhaps "God" evolved in another dimension...and I would have no problem with that idea...as long as it involved many other "gods".
The most ridiculous idea ever invented by man is the concept that "God was and always will be" -- never having a beginning.
e_h - I share a "problem with religion" with you. However, its a series of cogs and a mechanism that feeds a fear of God into people and believe it or not, tames them on a huge scale. Why try to disrupt or destroy something that makes the sheeple behave well, act pleasant and pay their taxes? You wouldn't actually want to break that. It's fun to think about chaos and an apocalypse...It's fun to think about walking down the street with a AA-12 and a 100 rd drum, just "cleaning" the area up of zombie scum...But in reality, War Is Hell. Not one you'd really wish for. Now I'm getting preachy.
So, back on message - I think you’re on the right track, but who knows? We've only recently been able to start conceptualizing the 11 dimensions as theorized by quantum physicists in trying to explain string theory. As that started to happen, teams of mathematicians started to tear apart Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, finding dozens of holes and new ways to re-evaluate the equation to include concepts in time-travel!
Look, I’m just saying now is NOT the time to poo-poo ANY theory or concept, since neither party has actual facts. Concepts, theories and “projections” along with “feelings” and “enlightenment” are not facts.
So, no facts? - Then Faith - At least that’s what’s logical to me.
