On last Tuesday, I had an enjoyable conversation with a friend. We talked about matters from religion to politics, but mainly spoke on theories and proposals. At one point, I had said what I am about to speak of. The thought formed on the day prior, and I have been thinking on this ever since. The topic is that of “origin of the universe”.
Speaking on the Big Bang — of how if we all came from the Big Bang, then there is proof of the lack of God. However, this brings up much question to mind. In fact, I feel there is much more proof of a God by the example of a Big Bang . . . or rather the same proof therein.
Let’s take a look at this. If the Big Bang occurred (scientifically), then what was before the BB?
- Nothing would exist.
- Every atom, molecule, etc. came from nothing OR from a single point in space.
- Explosion occurs, creating every rock, tree, star, person, etc. over a very long period of time.
- Spectacular coincidences occur to bring us to the point of our reality of the present moment.
- There is no point to any of this. We are all lucky to have formed brains — much less thought, emotions, feelings, and a deep longing for Truth.
Here, now, are contradictions to these statements:
- Science proves that matter cannot be created or destroyed.
- The BB could not occur if nothing was [there] to begin.
There is not much else to say for contradictions to the rest of the statements, due to the nature of reasoning. If we are pointless, then what is the point of even saying we have a reason — scientifically?
Now, I will examine the counter-argument of there being a divine causation. A creation event, wherein God created all. Here are the given reasoning:
- God created the universe and all that surrounds and resides within.
- Creation occurred by divine occurrence with all items added as-is.
- There is no creation without him — nothing spectacular except through his might.
- The point of this is to refine (you) into a divine being or to be judged by Himself, allowing you to continue on your Heaven path or your Hell path.
Now, I would like to discuss other obstacles to my own faith and judgement in these things:
I am going to swerve around these initial questions and get to the heart of the matter for my own reasoning, and then aim to head back to these statements.
With the mindset of the typical Christian, I will continue:
God created us to honor him, to worship him, to respect his wishes and he plans to judge us in the end. His plan is to judge each one of us and then do one of two things:
- send you to Heaven!!!
- send you to Hell (booo)
With these as the only options, then what is the point of this effort of God?
Onward with reasoning, (please feel free to share your opinion), this will be purely questions:
- If the Bible is a God-led book, then why are there so many contradictions?
- Why is there much room for perspective difference?
- Why are there entire regions that were born without the aid of this book?
- What happens to the people who have never been introduced to this book — Are they doomed to Hell?
- *If he created this book that will doom anyone that doesn’t agree with his point, then how do you justify this book as valid?
This last question needs explanation, below:
If this book is to inform the future generations of the purpose of his ambitions, then what happens to those within the book, whom the story surrounds? Not only that, but how do you accept the idea of sin being “wrong” if sin is required to create a polarity that exists between “right and wrong”?
- This book could never have been created without a villain character to portray the negative aspects, but what happens to that required element of a person?
- Are they doomed to Hell because they played a part of the book that [someone] would have had to do for a story to originally occur?
- Why would God have needed to send a man to Hell for something that he knew nothing wrong about, except for the book that followed his death?
- If God created ALL, then why did he even present the idea of evil — why is this element of the story required by him?
I could go on, but I am going to digress for now. I need to think about where I would even continue from here. These are major reasons for which I do not believe in Heaven and Hell as non-metaphorical representation of the stories from the Bible. That and to the effect of my disbelief for a God whom deems it appropriate to commit persons to damnation to serve a cause that serves His own cause. To that cause — as a pointless cause, because He created us to either place on a pedestal as champions of ignorance or damn us due to using the knowledge that he bestowed upon us to deny his claims.
I have even gone as far as to say that I would rather be damned forever, than to bow down to such a merciless god. I would rather spit in his face than ask for forgiveness. I don’t believe in that god and I plan to never do so.
As a belief in (your) God, that is difficult to imagine, but if I did, it is something like this:
Nothing was never possible.
If there is, then there always was.
All was there in the beginning and perhaps you could call this God.
God then was lonely. Even though he was all, he wanted more. He caused the Big Bang himself. Actually, he was the BB. He exploded himself to create a massive expansion which we call the Universe.
Because there was never nothing, then that means that God was All.
If All was god, then when he created anything — his creation automatically is created purely from God. There were no other elements of reality without God, therefore we are each a piece of God. We are certainly God, himself.
Yet God wanted a challenge — not just another version of his current All.
He wanted to experience life (a form that did not exist).
Through creation, he split his All into countless parts and in doing so had fractured his own mind. Because everything came from the all, then we each have a piece of God and call it our bodies, our mind, our spirit. Yet it is truly part of the All — part of God.
We are God.
Take that view into consideration in the next moment that you see another’s face. That face you see is the face of God. For if he created anything, he had to use an element of his self to create you.
You are wholly a piece of God.
Look at the next person you pass and think of how that person is God. How would you relate to them? How would you treat them? Would you pass by any homeless man and call him worthless?
Now think of what His point is.
He is here to enjoy life and see how things could be. To see how the joy emerges from sorrow — to examine the possibilities inherit within this world. He would be here, if anything, to see how the next round of creation could be revised to go without the pains of this world, yet has likely discovered that without pain, there can be no growth.
The whole point of any of this talk is to look at people in a different light.
Know that they are God, because without your actual proof that your convictions are true, then you are no better than atheists whom believe there is no God.
