    I forgot the name of the man that said, "Were there not a God, We should have to invent Him". .....and so it has proceeded through the ages that leaps, knowledge, consensus, introspection each brings us closer to the invention that when all is said and done has created us. The ultimate circle of life. We create the God that then creates us. Proof? We are. ...the inscrutable 'ol perfessor

    thanks for your interest in my blather. the paragraph relays my contention that God is indeed our invention. A compendium of our progress , knowledge, and ability to recognize Him, ( as opposed to the exclusions and damnations of men ....however lofty their positions). Like the monolith in Clarke's 2001 once observed and tallied said target moves on and more questions arise than answers. But the ultimate conclusion,( and lets face it no one but the feeblest high school science teacher lends any creedence to the self organize by accident theory,[ although so what if that were true the organization of said dust is "how" God is "what"]), is that we are; therefore He is. Remember NOTHING is impossible.

    If your contention is that G-d is indeed man's invention, then by the same reasoning who indeed invented man?

    This is called circular reasoning.

    Great question.

    ol perfessor, if God does not exist, and life didn't spontaneously form (as you say only feeble high school teachers believe) then where did life originate?

    First take time out of your equation. Then, picture the entirety of spacetime as one entity. Conclusions are that the universe is relatively,( get it relatively hahaha), young. Most of the universe then is in the future. ( Approximately 80% or so). Second we are here. Try to imagine how far the seed has come in the first iteration whose end we occupy. Extrapolate to a far off future. what is so far fetched then about the invention inventing the inventor? Recall and observe that nature works small to big, bottoms up. (an example is an oak, capitalism,[bottom up], compared to communism,[top down]), God needs only to be very small to suceed, flourish, and invent a universe for us to occupy, restlessly investigate, and adore Him.....He loves us.
    Parallel support comes to us in Bell's theory, the strong anthropic principle.
    Circular reasoning as a child's game and the way a child would think not withstanding, the facts support the conclusion. Acorns become trees, humans grow from the union of two cells, the universe is huge from an unimaginably tiny beginnning, there's thirty-some hockey teams........(that's proof of something right there). the 'ol P
