It’s more logical, I believe, to suspend judgement. The question why is there something and not nothing is, quite simply, a mystery beyond the human capacity to answer.Originally Posted by Aequoreus
What is more logical.. that everything appeared out of nothing on its own power or that everything appeared out of nothing by the power of God?
But we can speculate. I enjoy asking the question and looking at possibilities, definite answers are rarely my goal, which is probably a good thing.
Well that’s something of a different issue but on the issue of life after death does it necessitate a deity of some kind? Can it not be a “natural” process, albeit one we don’t understand? Of course a naturalist would say there is a form of life after death….our body decomposes and the nutrients are absorbed into the earth but if we posit that there is some form of trans-physical nature to human being (dependent probably on how we view mind) does that essence become absorbed into something else?And if it is more logical to believe God created the heaens and the earth is it also not logical to believe in His revelation to man?
