    it is heresy to discuss what He may or not do with his tender juicy meatballs, what next a reference to slurping on His sacred noodles?

    Edit: uggh too late how predictable

    The truth is we don't know, we will probably never know, but its fun to fantasize about gods and sugarplum fairies.
    I TOTALLY agree...just like its fun to fantasize about entire galaxies of matter that just always existed...and the numerous elements...and the mythical big bang that has gone through numerous theoretical incarnations...

    And of course...the equally vexxing question for those that support the God only "in the beginning" idea is OK...so where did God come from?

    I totally understand agnostics.

    If the flying spaghetti monster has the attributes and capabilities to create the universe, then he is indistinguishable from God.

    I do not think God only did his deal in the beginning and is quiet since. I think he interacts with creation.

    He is everywhere and everything and didn't come from anywhere - he is everlasting.

    This begs the question in your mind is this term "God" you are tossing around involving sentience, or is "God" just a reference to whatever force(s) that set set the universe in motion?

    The FSM could imply a non sentient non organic power that clapped its noodley appendages together creating a big bang, and you are just merely equating this to being "God" when it could be that the noodley appendages were just 2 P-branes colliding, and was not a conscious act of creation, and was instead an accidental.. happenstance occurrence in the multiverse.

    What do you mean "He"???

    I actually think if we would all (and by 'we' I mean the generic 'we'...not people on this board) put aside the NEED to be right and just allowed for discussion on the subject there is some FASCINATING things that could be learned. I understand the hesitancy of the pro-bang theory group to allow Intelligent Design to be taught in school...but man...can you think of a more cool class than one that taught the science and physics and offered students the opportunity to design a galxy...plug the info into computer models and see which students models didnt get all tore up. (sort of like the scaled bridge exercises).

    How do you know what characteristics it would require if you don't even know what it requires to create the universe?

    Any talk on such is just arbitrary guessing; just nonsense, literally.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I think God is the supreme sentience. God is omniscient, remember.
