A Question

Allow me to ask a question, I’m eager to know the answer from members here, there no offense at all, you have all the right to answer or not,

You can reply:

………….. created me

No one created me

Nature created me

My parents created me

Jesus created me

Boza created me

Brahma created me

The holy spirit created me

Etc

So the question is:

Who created you? or what created you?

Again no offense at all, I’m eager to know who will say God created me

If you don’t want to answer, it is your right of course


Regards,
mahmoud

I was created by an agreement I made with God. I chose to incarnate in a specific physical body at a specific time in history, choosing my gender, my parents, location, country, economic conditions, and specific life situations for the purpose of fulfilling (or attempting to fulfill) a specific Divine plan for my life.

God and I are partners in this adventure. God is the Creative Force behind all existence, and I agreed to come into existence using that creative force so God could know itself.

Actually "humans" are all splinters of God, created by God for the purpose of God knowing and experiencing itself through a myriad of delightful ways.

My parents created me using a tried and true natural biological process.

I suspect you are being rather ethnocentric in your opinion.

Do you even know what normal distribution is?

I know a lot of Christians that are disgusted by Phelps and Swaggart too....being disgusted is nice.......but when they start busting the criminals then let me know......I may change my mind......until then forget it.......the religion as a whole shoulders the blame.
No PLEASE post your statistics, what exactly IS normal? Sounds like a whole lot of BS guessing and assuming to me. My step dad was a cop, my brother in law is a cop, I know a whole lot of atheist and non christian ( other religions) cops. In fact I know a whole lot of scientologist cops.

I also know a WHOLE lot of Christians that make excuses for a lot of BS their fellow Christians do.

I think Christianity on the whole should take the blame for oh the witch trials, crusades, inquisition oh and lets throw the Holocaust in since he was a believer also. Oh and every nutjob that claims to be doing something in the name of God, lets throw them in to. But the Christians will just say " oh they were not real chrisitians" like there even is such a thing. Scapegoat. You are generalizing, and Judging.

An answer:

You have framed your question in a wrong way to begin with.

By asking "___ created me?", you had presumed "creation". Then, "who" will win the contest of "creation"? The biggest BS created by humans.

You got atheist extremists too. Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, Mao, Pol Pot, and Tito all did their fair share of genocide.

Islam is bent on world domination, yet look at the Islamic governments......running countries of poverty, repression, and incredible cruelty.....every bit as bad as the Spanish Inquisition. Christianity got through it, but Islamists want us to revert back to the 17th century.

Sorry, but so long as Muslims support terrorists they have no respectability.

An opportunity to express my religious freedom and contempt for the proselytizers of a hateful faith perhaps.......someone has to stand up and be wiling to say "This is not true." Otherwise people hear only the one side......that Islam is of peace, that Islam supports freedom........that is a lie. Islam is first and foremost a political system and is secondarily a religious system.....Muslims simply clothe their political ambitions with religious trappings.

It isn't hate......its anger..........
You know... In their eyes we're the criminals, the thugs - the terrorists. And for the most part they have some credibility in claiming so. Criminals and terrorists are defined strictly by society.

Almost everything you can say about them they can say about us. We can say they have an illegitimate religion, so can they. You can claim they're the bad guy, and so can they. You can breed animosity towards them, and they can do the same thing. so what do you plan to accomplish here other than a battle of subjective ideals?
