    Well, that is entirely possible.

    But, we do not live on the alternate earth. So, no alternate Jerusalem here.

    No, it isn't possible, it is something I just made up. What makes it possible? It is pure speculation at best. My imagination does not create possibilities, just make believe stuff. All ideas are not equal to possibilities. Possibilities require evidence, not random thoughts. It is false to claim that anything is possible.

    Then god is an extraordinary claim that requires extraordinary evidence. Without that evidence all you have is an extraordinary claim. Which gives me no reason to consider it a possibility.

    beyond which we know absolutely nothing.
    No, that is not true. We know that no evidence has ever been given for existence. We also know that not one good reason has ever been given to suggest a god exists just as none has ever been given that any fictional character exists. We do know that many of the claims of god are either contradictory or denied by others over their own claims of a god.

    So, in a real way, some god might very well have created our reality and then let it run its course. We cannot prove it to be impossible. Hence, it just might be possible. I doubt it, but who really knows?
    As the same can be said for dr who being responsible for the starting of time and space then in your reasoning we must accept that dr who is possible.

    Jesus and Santa are definitely terrestrial. And, we know a lot about what is or is not possible on our little blue ball. So, it is pretty clear that Jesus and Santa are not possible. Reindeer do not fly, and Jews do not rise up from the dead after three days.
    What is actually terrestrial about jesus or santa. To which laws of physics do they comply to. god to by many definition could be claimed to be terrestrial in the same sense as those two as god also is said to interact with earth.
