Creation: Why? [Aug. 30th, 2008|01:51 am]

Okay, so supposing God exists as the creator, there's a question that pretty much goes unanswered which is "why?"

The most reasonable answer I can think of would be entertainment. There's this existing being chillin' all over all that is, and he's like "Okay, let's do this..." Because it's like this ongoing sitcom that he can get off on watching because we're all clueless creatures, pondering philosophical things and his very existence.

But they say that God is perfect, and though the idea of perfection is pretty ambiguous, I think my understanding of the term would insist there's a huge contradiction. If God, again supposing he exists, is perfect, then he wouldn't NEED or WANT. If one needs or wants something, then everything can't be perfect. If it were, then why need or want? (I'm doing a circle, I know...)

And then there's the whole question, why is it that God's whole existence seems to revolve only around what's going on here on earth? I mean, there's this whole universe, and I suppose there could be more outside of this univers, why don't we hear about God's activity outside of the human race? Why does he only address us?

And back to the whole entertainment theory: How could it possibly be all that entertaining when he already knows what's going on, supposedly. If I go and pick up a movie and knew everything in the movie, word for word, minute by minute, every gesture, every facial expression EXACTLY - EVERY - DETAIL, how is that even entertaining anymore?

None of this is really solid, but the more I discuss one part, it leads me into another.

AND, for crying out loud, WHY do we question every single possibility when we know that no other human could possibly contain a definite answer - and if they COULD, why would we believe them over the other people who think they know the "true" answer to it all?

Hmm. I'm honestly not very educated on religion at all. I'm not sure how this reply is going to turn out so I'm gonna just start, run with it, and see where I end up.

I believe in God, I believe in Jesus, I believe in being a good person. Don't ask me why, because I don't think I have an answer. It's just something that I feel inside, something I think, something I believe in it. It feels right. I have not always believed, so I have been on both sides. This is possibly some ingrained human defense system where these beliefs are solely for the comfort of my own brain. If so, then so be it.

With that being said I guess I don't care why. If I'm right then I'm gonna have a good afterlife, if God doesn't exist and nothing happens when you die then it doesn't matter anyway, hopefully I lived a good life and enjoyed it, and if I am wrong and there actually is a God but not the one I believe in and I go to hell then the same applies hopefully I lived a good life and enjoyed it and I will be in that hell bitching about how unfair it is because how could I have done right by that God if I never was able to know about it.

My thoughts are feeling very, very scrambled. I'm going to stop because I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with my own brain.
