Look at it any way you like. I meant exactly what I said. Just accepting that concept is not being a thinking person. Again, going back to the script of "Inherit The Wind", when asked one religious question, the character answers, "I do not think about what I do not think about". To which the other lawyer responds, "Do you think about what you do think about?"

I hate to tell you this Jimmie, but I have in my past sat in on discussions of just this topic, and there was not agreement among christians involved.

No. That's not what you said. You said that all christians believe that. And that's not true.

Default Why does God desire to "love" all of us?

For a Christian, this is equivalent to asking "Why does God exist?" because for us God IS agape love. God IS Spirit and His Holy Spirit of agape love is God's essence itself so it is not a matter of God desiring to love all of us. God IS love, period.

Thereís no need for personal attacks. Just make your point, if you have one.

What were the other thoughts about how God originated?

But you said, "Christians believe..." Now you're saying you think most do.

1. What you believe.
2. That it's impossible to conceive of what happened.
3. That it occurred during the Big Bang.

And don't confuse blunt talk with personal attack. That tactic is tired.

Christians telling non-christians that they will go to hell if they don't accept jesus christ is personal attack.

The universe has always existed.

Our universe made us.

The proof is in our pudding. We are made of it.
