comment Who created God?
@dan why are you obsessing about causes? Why does the universe need a cause any more than a universe Creator? Of course not. The origin of the universe is not necessarily the cause of the universe.

Nothing exists prior to itself is just false. Anything with a past existed prior to itself.

Pseudologic. Creation cannot happen without time, since creation implies a before and an after.

+1 for correctly identifying faith as the justification and not hiding behind questionable "logic".

@fir: "every event in the universe has a cause" does not imply "the universe has a cause". It's like saying: "everything in a fish pond swims, therefore a fish pond swims"

Your answer makes no sense in English: did you mean God simply "IS"? Can you make this more than a comment by fleshing up this post?

In any case this is a low quality answer: one liner, highly debatable logic, completely unconstructive.

comment Who is Immanuel?
So you are claiming the Bible is mistranslated? In the passage cited it is quite clear that Immanuel is used as name, and not an appellative.

Sorry, but this is completely off topic, please answer my question, and don't proselytise.

If God had shown reasonable proof to humanity as you say, how do you explain that 70% of humanity is not Christian?

comment Why does God not show Himself beyond reasonable doubt?
Why do you assume the existence of the universe proof of the existence of the Christian God and not, say, the induist pantheon or FSM?

Except Jesus is not called Immanuel, or is he? :)

@wik, but by doing so, you could also change your criticism to be actually constructive :)

@wik what is it you don't like or isn't actually a correct analysis? Ps, don't forget you can edit the question to make it better...
