Before I start, I would like to clarify a few things:First, I am aware that I am referring to God as a male when I say “he”. I do this because it is easier than carefully structuring my sentences around using the word “it” instead; “it” also usually refers to a thing.Second, I will remind you that this is only my theory, that everyone is entitled to believe what he or she wants, and that you are reading this of your own free will.
– Unless of course this happens to actually get published, is a major hit, and becomes part of the core curriculum at schools, but I doubt it – What this means is that I have every right to write about these things, you have a right to disagree, but if you do, then please tell anyone but me, because I really couldn’t care less if you think that I’m wrong.God. Human beings have believed in God for thousands of years, we pray to him, we are so obsessed with him that when we find other religions, which believe in a God other than ours, we wage war with them. Since religion is such a large part of our society, you have to ask the question ‘where did the notion of God even come from?’ It probably comes from the times when the rising and setting of the sun and moon seemed like miracles, and how could these things be explained? Why, isn’t it obvious, there’s an invisible being that exists everywhere and has always existed? This being is beyond our time, space and all other rules of the universe because it created them originally.As time progressed, we became more technologically advanced, we came to understand why the sun and moon rise and set, why the stars are constantly moving around us, why we don’t float off into the air, and how every single thing in the universe is made up of an uncountable number of microscopic things we call atoms.Now think about this, why after we have come to understand so many of the things that we thought God was doing, why do we still pray to him? The main reason in my opinion, all comes down to three things:1.
We don’t want to believe that when we die, that is it, that there is nothing else. Believing in God means that we can believe in an afterlife, which stops us fearing the idea of infinite nothingness after we die.2. ‘God’ gives us a reason to live, a meaning to life, the idea that we are here for a reason and not just to exist.3.
The only realistic theory about how the universe stared, how it all began, is to believe that God created it. We may have theories, such as that of the big bang, but if you keep asking what triggered the big bang, and how that happened, and then what started that, ect, you are going to end up right where you started.Believing in God stops the need for us to ask all of those really hard questions; it means that we can push aside the greatest of our fears and queries about life (and death), by believing in a completely irrational idea that originated during the Stone Age.I do not say this to attack or insult those of you who believe in God, I myself definitely believe in God, I am only explaining why the majority of people believe in God, even if they don’t realise it. The idea of God is definitely an irrational one, but it can be explained by simply saying that if there is a God, then he would not need to be rational because he created those things which determine what is rational and what is not.The main reason I believe in God, is that the universe (as far as I am aware) is much to balanced.
The way everything interacts with each other is just too perfect to have happened by chance, the universe is structured so well that it had to have been planned before hand, and the only thing that could have planned ‘stuff’ before there was ‘stuff’ would be God.”I had a great childhood, how about you God?”(I will not continue to state that what I will say from now on if only my belief, I will instead act as if it were fact, this is because the repetition would become very monotonous, and will require what I view to be unnecessary effort.)God is not perfect, not entirely good nor evil, but with his own personality. At first (how there can be a first for God will be explained, don’t worry,) God knew nothing, and there was nothing, no universe, time, space or anything.
There was just an empty void, similar to that within the skull or some of my classmates. God needed to learn and discover things for himself, since there was nothing around for him to learn from, his first creation was probably a mistake. This thing, whatever it may be, was probably pretty pathetic, compared to what most people believe God is capable of.
From this first creation, God may not yet have known what he actually did, but he probably realised that he was capable of doing things. After a great deal of practice, he then learnt how to do things intentionally; he probably learnt how to either make pockets of time, create matter, space, or something else entirely. These things may have been ok on their own, but when combined they probably blew up in Gods metaphoric face.
I’ll use matter as an example. As anyone who is reading this should know, everything in the universe is made up of atoms, which are in fact made up of much smaller parts. Gods’ first tries at creating matter probably had no smaller parts to them.
If God then tried to put mass in space, it would be fine, but when time and other things were added, it became too complicated. God’s a perfectionist, if it is necessary, complicated systems are fine, but if things can be changed to make things simpler then they are.As God continued to experiment, (keeping in mind that he had an infinite amount of time to do so,) he came up with new ways to do things, for example after practice, and a lot of thinking, he probably figures out that mass needed to be made up of smaller parts, he discovered he could give mass a gravitational pull, he discovered time, space, and all the other things that exist in this universe.- Here is an explanation of how God could have had a first, second and third form of anything, before time.Gods’ version of time is not the same as ours, in his version he can do something, and then something else, he can not go back to the past, but that doesn’t matter since he can change those things that exist in his present so that they are exactly the same as they were in the past. For (a very crude and basic) example, I have a computer game, this game allows me to save at any time I want, it also keeps track of how long I have been playing, this information doesn’t effect the game, and is purely for my personal information.
I can load the game at any time, returning it to the state it was previously, loading however doesn’t reload the previous game play time.In this game I come to a cross road, I can go left or right, so I save the game. At first I chose to go left, once I find out what lies down that path, I load the game and take the right path, after experiencing both paths I decide which I can decide which I prefer.Gods’ version or time is much the same, the difference being, that he has an infinite number of save points so he can go back to any point he wants at any time he wants.He can’t go back in time, but he can make the present exactly the same at the past.
– Here is what I mean when I say that God discovered and figured things out. When God discovers something, he simply decides o create it, the thing is that he has to think of it first.e.g., God discovered that mass worked better if it was made out of smaller parts which interacted.
He could have made it so it still worked with larger parts, but the smaller parts worked better when combined with other things like time and space. God wants everything to follow certain natural laws, so it interacts with all other factors as simply and efficiently as possible.Think of it like this, There are lots of ways to get from my house to school, but one way is the most efficient, if I was moved so I was next to the school, then I’d have to go further to get to my old neighbour.After God had perfected all of the laws of the universe, he began to work on those things within the universe, such as the different types of elements and what properties they should have. He then went on to create stars, solar systems, galaxies and all of those kinds of things. The most probable way God did this was by trial and error, which he continued to do until he was satisfies that everything was absolutely perfect, right down to the smallest detail.After this God turned his attention to life, it was all very well to have a perfect beautiful universe, but it doesn’t really do anything interesting. So God turned to life, once again through the process of experimentation.
God created a new universe for each experiment, there was no reason to destroy the old ones, and it is easier to compare the two this way.We, Humans, we definitely not one of his first creations, but if you look around, it’s quite obvious that we are not the end, perfect result. I’ll be frank, God screwed us up! Now I know what you are thinking, that I’m an idiot, that there is nothing wrong with us.Human nature, what we do naturally, that is what is wrong with us. God didn’t intentionally create a life form that is naturally selfish, greedy, self-obsessed, kind, stubborn, smart and ignorant all at the same time. We as a race are driven by moral and immoral, (greed, selfishness, fear, hate, ect.
) ideas.e.g., we might find it amusing if somebody hurts himself, like if someone is on a bike, and rides into a pole accidentally, it is also amusing to us seeing someone else getting a wedgie. If a person was mugged, and landed up in hospital, for minor yet very painful injuries on his chest, his friends would be very sad if they went to visit him. If the same guy met the same mugger, and had injured his genitals and had a cast on them, when those same friends went to visit him, they probably wouldn’t be able to stop laughing for hours and hours.This is a simple example that most people could relate to, but it applies to almost every aspect of our nature. We are part good and part bad, this is our basic problem.
God created us, but he’s not influencing us at all, he is letting us run our own lives. What I find to be extremely strange is the way we are constantly praying to God. If God commanded us to pray to him, to tell him how brilliant and glorious he is, then it is obvious that he is not perfect, and that he is self obsessed. I mean, what would u do if someone ordered you to constantly tell them how great they are? You would say that they are either self-obsessed; they lack self-confidence, or both. Now why should we pray to a God who would probably benefit more from a session with a psychiatrist?The truth is that God can hear our prayers, but every prayer probably just aggravates him, how would you like it if you had billons of people constantly whining and asking you for stuff? God can hear us, but he doesn’t give a **** about any of us as individuals, he cares about what we do as people. Think of God as a scientist with unlimited resources, and yourself as an electron of an atom of one of the specks of dust on one of the white mice that God does his experiments on.
