    We're talking about whether it is sensible for God to love to do anything.

    Are we talking about the same God? What God are you talking about? I'm talking about the one that created the Universe. Why does it need to be sensible?

    According to Christian doctrine, it might be considered a repair station.

    You are missing a very important Biblical teaching in your assesment. We are created in the image of God. God is a creator and has thoughts will and desires. So do we because we inherited them from God.

The Bible affects some people's opinion directly. Glorified bodies were a Bible reference. Oh, God creating the Universe is a Bible reference too.
    Once again. The OP is asking for PEOPLE to post THEIR opinions.

    He created the rest of the universe because he has a fetish for round things that spin around in elipses.
