Calling All Intelligent Designers – Part IIApril 28, 2007 at 6:33 am | Posted in Atheism, Beliefs, creationism, evolution, intelligent design, Religion | 13 Comments
The responses I received on part I where I asked the question, “WHO MADE GOD?” brings up more questions.
He is infinite. He is outside of time, because He created time.
God was not created.
He always is. Let’s analyze the logic behind it.
In order for something to be the absolute creator, it has to be outside of the rules it created.
In order for a board game to be created, someone/thing has to be outside of the rules of the board game in order to make them.
In order for this computer that I’m usint to be created, someone/thing had to be outside of the rules that binds a computer.
In order for the world, time, physics, and everything else to be created, someone/thing had to be outside of those rules to create them.
I almost always hear god referred to as he or him, occasionally she/her, but never it. If god, as the creator, exists outside of the rules that apply to his creations then I assume that god has no gender, so why call god he?
The next question I have is about god making man in his image? Again, if the same rules don’t apply to the creator as the creations, how is this possible? Also if god created man in his image, why are there so many who doubt his existence? Would not the creations of this god have a belief system built in by the creator? I won’t even ask the question why, having been made in his image, do we not all look alike? Then I imagine the answer from those who take the bible literally would tell me this is metaphoric (another of many contradictions). Beyond that, being made in his image, how do you explain the horribly deformed or any physical or mental state that falls outside of what the bible describes?
