    Or does your God reside in another dimension? In which case, how many dimensions are there?
    If God is of this universe, how much does he weight? Is God dark matter?

    The taxes are pretty high in this universe, that is why God travels back and forth.

    Here's a thought. Try and name some things you do know about the manner in which God operates/exists.

    Our world as we know it consists of 4 dimentions consisting of time and space. God however lives outside of these dimentions as he is a spirit. John 4:24 says, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." He only entered into entered into our dimentions when he became flesh and stepped into this world to die for your and my sins.

    Such a definative answer for claiming that no one knows.

    It had the virtue of being honest. Your answer on the other hand was, well... meaningless gibberish.

    What exactly does "God is a spirit" mean, in a practical sense? How does that work exactly? If you don't have a clue just calling it "spirit" then pretending like you've explained the nature of God by slapping a label on it is a pointless exercise.

    They might be interested if not posed by a anti-religion troll. John's purpose is to get those with religious views to offer up answers, then he'll cherry pick anything he thinks he can poke holes in and run with it. Another boring flame thread results. Yawn.

    Meaningless gibberish to you. What don't you understand about God isn't limited by time and space?

    I had a dream once I died and I flew through space to another planet or place but it only ended up being a big cafeteria. I think God is the universe, he is everything.
