As evidenced through numerous near death experiences, there is an all-loving presence that we know as God, Creator, Source, etc… but who created God?
What if there was a caste system where the “God” that we know of reports to a higher being of existence? Some religions and belief systems have multiple gods. Who do they answer to?
Religious Constructs of God
The following provides an outline of the religious constructs of God:
- Christianity: In Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” He is defined by others but no definition of himself.
- Jewish: No definition of God.
- Kabbalah: God is the creator of both matter and spirit but is himself, neither.
- Hindu: God, whether in the form of Shiva or Vishnu has six attributes. Jnana (Omniscience), defined as the power to know about all beings simultaneously; Aishvarya (Sovereignty), which consists in unchallenged rule over all; Shakti (Energy), or power, which is the capacity to make the impossible possible; Bala (Strength), which is the capacity to support everything by His will and without any fatigue; Virya (Vigor), or valor which indicates the power to retain immateriality as the Supreme Being in spite of being the material cause of mutable creations; and Tejas (Splendor), which expresses His self-sufficiency and the capacity to overpower everything by His spiritual effulgence.; cited from Bhakti Schools of Vedanta, by Swami Tapasyananda.
Proof That Some Sort of God Exists
In the reports of people who had near death experiences, you never hear about the experiencer seeing other forms of life, such as Grays, Reptilians, Alpha Draconians, etc… on the other side of the veil. Do they report to a different God? If so, how many Gods are there and who, ultimately, is the initial God?
Intelligent Design can be defined as ” Wherever complex design exists, there must have been a designer; nature is complex; therefore nature must have had an intelligent designer.”
The earliest known form of life is a type of bacterium, dating back to approximately 3.8 billion years ago. Several doctors have commented about the intricacy of this particular bacterium.
Dr. Robert Hazen: “The simplest living cell is intricate beyond imagining…human brains seem ill-suited to grasp such multi-dimensional complexity.”
Dr. Michael Denton: “each is a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of elegantly designed pieces of molecular machinery…far more complicated than any machinery built by man and without parallel in the non-living world.”
If everything is the product of intelligent design, then it was all created from scratch, with the simplest, yet complex, forms of life. From that point forward, more complex forms of life were created which ultimately led to the creation of man and woman.
A God To WHO?
How is it possible for there to be a God to anyone if the only initial being, energy or presence was God, himself (or herself)?
The following explains this premise:
If a god did exist it could not just always have been god. The term god implies certain attributes. These attributes are meaningless without something for them to apply to. example – Superman has attributes but if there are no other men he is no longer superman. If there is nothing for him to bend with his bare hands how does the strength attribute apply? If there is nothing for him to see through x ray vision is meaningless. A God before the creation had nothing to be god to. A king without a kingdom is not a king. A god without the creation is the god of nothing.
So for any god to exist before the creation is senseless. It would know all of nothing (omniscience), it has power over nothing (omnipotence), has nothing to be good to (omnibenevolence) and nothing to love so how could it love? The ‘god’ is meaningless.
Another possibility is found outside the constructs of time, as time is an element of being human.
Rich Deem stated it best by saying, ” God has no need to have been created, since He exists either outside time (where cause and effect do not operate) or within multiple dimensions of time (such that there is no beginning of God’s plane of time). Hence God is eternal, having never been created. Although it is possible that the universe itself is eternal, eliminating the need for its creation, observational evidence contradicts this hypothesis, since the universe began to exist a finite ~13.8 billion years ago. The only possible escape for the atheist is the invention of a kind of super universe, which can never be confirmed experimentally (hence it is metaphysical in nature, and not scientific).”
The Most Logical Conclusion
Is it possible that God is neither male or female, but is an all-knowing, all-loving energy who decided to experience everything that could possibly be through his creations (people, plants, animals, planets, universes, etc…)?
Everything ultimately boils down to energy so in this premise, God is the ultimate expression of energy.
Imagine Being “God”….
What if YOU were the ultimate expression of everything that is, was and will be? Eventually, you might create beings who could experience all that you created. Perhaps you would create Universal Laws to see how they would affect your creations?
It seems the only initial emotion would be self-love but what would it feel like to love others? Eventually, would you desire contrast through polarity and duality if everything was love and only love? What kind of lessons would you learn through other emotions?
A Rosicrucian belief is that we are not here to “be happy”. Happiness is an emotion. We are here to have as many experiences as possible and within some of those experiences, we will find happiness.
What Do YOU Think?
There is no right or wrong answer even if you’re an atheist. Who do YOU think created God? Leave your comments below!
