What is God? Does there exist an all powerful entity, who controls everything that happens? What came first - Man or God?
Well, look around you. Do you see anything in your immediate vicinity that seems to be divinely controlled? Does anything that you hear in the news seem to be a doing of a superbeing? Or is it just human activities influenced by the laws of nature acting the way they should act. Most so called "miracles" are either coincidences or flukes. Somewhere on the edges of a (0,1) range of mathematical probabilities for all possible occurrences. There can never be a 0 nor a perfect 1. Most of our everyday events lie in the middle of this range & so are not attributed as miracles.
So does this mean that there is no such thing as god, is there no superbeing influencing our lives? But as Carl Sagan has said "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence".
So if there exists a superbeing, what exactly does he do? Does he go about sowing seeds of life on different planets and then watches them grow into thinking beings? Or does he create universes as points in a hyperdimensional plane and allows them to wax & wane. Does this superbeing have his own theories of god? Are there multiple levels of superbeings, each god having his own god. If so, who's the ultimate god? And who created that ultimate god? Was it just chance, some random occurrence?
I like to think the inherent randomness in everything, the chaos, as superpowerful, as god. It is what creates all our miracles and all our mundane. It is what drives evolution, thus it is what drives life as we know it. It is what leaves questions unanswered, which compels us to think, which drives us to progress.
All said and done, I like to imagine some being on some planet far, far away searching for this own god, making theories no one of us can even imagine............
