<quoted text>There "was" no "void." There "was" no "before" time.
How can so many Christians be absolutely perplexed at the concept of "no time before time, no space before space" and simultaneously insist that they understand God? It is similar to saying that they can't grasp what a null set is, but can clearly picture infinity.
Show me -4 on a yardstick that hasn't been milled from a board that hasn't been cut from a tree that hasn't been planted yet.
So was there some universe in play before that died out and this is round 2?

Let's say you rent a house that happens to have a storm shelter. If a tornado hits the house but you refuse to use the storm shelter, would it be the landlord's fault if you died?

If the landlord (somehow) made the tornado then yes it definitely would be the landlord's fault.

What am I missing?

All the while the poison gases around our puddle was being irradiated by solar charged particles hitting it without the protections of the Ozone layers...
You see the Puddle you are surrounded by and say the blobs are like clockworks never considering the view is only a 1/10,000th of a second view of the puddle....

I don't mean to sound unimpressed,your ability to describe how a tadpole thinks,was truly amazing.
Moreover,where you state that
"You might have a different view if you were on Earth during the heavy bombardment period etcetc"
implies that,someone actually witnessed those events,as you so vividly described them,mile high tsunamis,every six hours and so on,
If they were not witnessed,what is your basis for giving such a vivid and supposedly accurate description,
Or,are you being facetious,and merely trying to entertain us....
I hope so.....I like Science fiction and was a devout fan of the Twilight Zolne

<quoted text>THIS is funny. I know you're not into logic, but what is the reason God created Satan?

How did Satan get into the Garden?

God created ALL and is ALL powerful and he didn't see the Devil coming? Seems he has less power than Iron Man...

One more logic comment for you: Let me see if I have it correct...Jesus is God in the flesh, so GOD sent HIMSELF to be killed for OUR sins to save US from HIMSELF.

WOW!!!
Refer to my response to Mike for where Lucifer (Satan) came from.

No Jesus is not the Father. Jesus is the Son of God. They are two different beings. God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are 3 separate beings who collectively make up the Godhead. They are one in purpose.

Everyone dies. The chance of that is 100% whether you are 1 or 111 and it isn't because there is or is not a god. Wistfully wishing you won't "get the call" or dreading the cold hard fact that you will isn't a reason to make believe someone's 'soul' is going to scorch in a lake of brimstone or that yours will float around on clouds and play the harp forever and ever, amen.

Kinda like the people who thought the earth was flat back in Columbus's day. To them, it was illogical that the earth could actually be round. Wonder how they felt after Columbus didn't fall off the "edge of the earth"?

How can I understand something when no one here has yet to even explain it?

You guys answer questions that no one asked, while for some reason you think you are answering our questions.

They didn't think anything of it, other than "holy crap" there's a lot of land over there. Let's get it!". Everyone (pretty much) knew the world was a sphere by the time Columbus sailed.

So before that was just matter in motion that at some point reacted with each other to start the clock?

Let's say that Charles Manson has a rabid fan club and they write the story of his life. Would you read that book and assume it is all literally true or would you take it with a grain of salt?
When I was a non believer,I most assuredly took it with more than a grain of salt. I did not want to hear about it,period.
But let's look at this fanclub,as you call it.
They spent about 3 years with Jesus and witnessed his works.He had told them about his upcomind death.
They had stated that they were willing to die with him..
But,when Jesus was arrested,they quickly ran away,Peter denied him. After Jesus was buried and his tomb was found to be empty and were told by Mary Magdalene that she had seen him,that he had risen,they did not believe her.
So,one needs to ask the question,If one does not believe that Jesus rose from the dead,why would one insist in preaching that he has?What would be the purpose?What price are you going to pay,for preaching something you believe to be a lie?Persecution by those who are in power,jailed and flogged.
Do you stand to make a financial gain?
But,if Jesus did rise from the dead,as they so ardently believed,that he was the son of God,then one would have a very legitimate reason for standing before the powers that be,and preach that which has been proven to you,by Him who made those claims.
One may be willing to die or suffer for what one believes to be true,but,one is not willing to die or suffer for that which one knows to be a lie.
Paul,whose trials and tribulations ,I am sure you are familiar with made a statement that had a tremendous impact on me
"
1 Corinthians 15:13-20
13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people MOST TO BE PITIED
Let me ask you this,What scientific evidence would YOU require,in order to believe in God?
What if the evidence you required was not sufficient to convince others? Then what?
And let us keep in mind,that Science,by it's very definition ,does not have the tools to provide such evidence.
I believe you,when you say that you want evidence,but,it appears to me that,you are looking in the wrong places for your answer
Maybe the claim of the resurrection was a lie but the authors of the bible just blindly believed the tale as you do?

What would the motives be for these apostles to continue to teach Jesus' words? If He did not come back to visit them after death, why would they have reason to believe anything He told them?
So if Jesus would have died and not returned to them to show them that He indeed lives, they would have to be idiots to continue to teach His words and jeopardize their lives over it while remaining dirt poor. They gained nothing financially or socially by carrying on the spreading of the gospel. And almost all of them were killed for their doing so. If Jesus did not rise and speak to them, wouldn't they just have walked away, a little bitter even for wasting that much time of their lives and leaving their family?

You might have a different view if you were on Earth during the heavy bombardment period that lasted for millions of years where the earth was a red hot molten ball of lava being hit constantly by large hunks of rocks and ice... with a moon so close that there was tsunamis of red hot lava a mile high every 6 hours as the moon that filled a 1/4 of the sky passed by during the 6 hour night...

So this time period could not have been part of the creation periods, being executed from the plan of a creator?

It's Called Evidence.... We have Evidence of the heavy bombardment period, we have Evidence of the early molten rock formations... We have Evidence the moon is moving away from the earth and can mathematically calculate it's distance early on... We know the gravitational Constance, We have millions of other stars and 100's systems to compare ours too.... We know that the sun is a 3rd generation star that has burned and blown up 2 times before and the matter from those explosions reformed to give us the star we orbit today....

Simply because you do not take the opportunity to study the many fields of science that allows us to know what reality is does not mean you can't start learning the basics anytime you wish... I would start with basic general science class and then take Physics, Geology, Chemistry courses to begin with before getting into the more esoteric sciences....

Highly philosophical and hypothetical question, since by any human definition it would be as totally isolated and discreet from this existence as is absolutely possible. Supposing there is/was/will be a "parent universe," to seed this one, there is/was/will be no reason to suppose it will/does/did resemble/s/d this one in any way.

Why? There is no need... It's a process that naturally occurs throughout the observed universe... It's still happening now... It will continue to happen for billions of years to come... If Humans do not find a way to leave this tiny ball of mud all human kind will vanish from the universe in the future... the moon is moving away at a few inches per year and in a short million years will be a few million inches further away causing less stability of the planet....

The Insertion of the concept of God is for your own personal ego to make you feel more important than you really are... It's a Human Ego Concept that allows a being that is equivalent to a virus on a mite on a flea on a fly on a bird on a elephants back to feel important... So Important that a God made the universe for them to live in... Actually so important that God takes notice of their lives and allows greatness...

Reality is man is no more than a virus scale critter on a tiny planet orbiting a mundane star on the out skirt of a mundane galaxy among Billions upon billions of other far more notable galaxies with Trillions upon Trillions of far more notable stars....
