Ummm, I am not trying to offend you, so please don't PM me any hate mail, but, if you meant what you said, what are you still doing on this thread?... besides upsetting people and not DISCUSSING your religion on a DISCUSSION forum about religion.

I plan to talk more in-depth about that once I get a few other points out of the way so please be patient with me.

Actually no, you only can assume this because you already have previous confirmation of what someone looks like when run over with a car. We only have one universe to work with and no previous experience with the makings of universes. Though even then, this does not hold because you can't prove that some other cause doesn't have the same effect as the one previously observed.

It is not matter that I'm saying requires cause; It is activity that requires cause, though I do believe God created matter.
I have a question as well. Why would you assume that I am saying God is simple? Personally, I find him incomprehensible. Let me rephrase. What about God do you find simple?

Thanks, and sorry for not reading the rules. I have always been one to skip the instruction manual.
