If cupcakes could talk, what would they say? Would they decide to rebel one day and start the Baker-Hating-Cupcakes organisation, and ask, ‘Who created the Baker?’ Of course not, that’s just stupid.
So similarly, when atheists ask their same-old, same-old question: ‘Who created God?’ It’s equally stupid as the Eternal God - Creator of all things - requires no creator.
God is a spirit (John 4:24), and has existed for eternity past. Time only applies to this physical universe of ours and only began operating the instant God said, ‘Let there be...’
Don’t stop reading, this gets interesting.
This concept escapes mankind’s ability to comprehend, much like God transcends our physical universe, because he’s not a physical entity, as we would like to understand Him.
Atheists believe that an unknown mass of approximately 10kg of floating nothing/something, suddenly exploded/expanded rapidly, and that same 10kg of nothing miraculously became the organised universe that we have today. Of course, they have to factor in a guesstimated 13 to 20 billion years in order for this absurd notion to sound plausible.
But this is NOT another discussion about the Big Bang – so LET’S START BEFORE THAT.
When atheists are challenged about which scientific laws were in motion for the Big Bang to suddenly and randomly occur; they either hurl overly-defensive insults (as expected because they have no answer), or they copout by suggesting that the laws of science only began operating from the precise moment following the Big Bang.
So okay then, let’s assume the latter, and let’s agree that the laws of science only applied to our universe instantly AFTER the Big Bang occurred. Would it be fair to say then, that no laws of science could ever be used to understand/measure what happened before the Big Bang? That’s fair right? Because we also know that scientists, cosmologists and astrophysicists the world over agree on this point; that trying to understand what happened prior to the Big Bang would just be mere speculation. We all accept that.
So we know then, that this elusive 10kg of something had to have come from somewhere/Someone right? That’s just logic and common sense.
So if the laws of science cannot be used to measure/test/prove anything prior to the Big Bang, then it’s accurate to say that whatever/Whoever existed before the Big Bang, cannot be measured/found by using manmade physical instrumentation or through any scientific method.
So what we are left with? Only more questions about our origins.
Human science is therefore trapped in a physical universe which its Creator completely transcends. So how will science ever be able to find/prove ‘something’ that it simply cannot measure?
It’s a fair question...
