Probably not the best way to try to refute someone. Personally, I would adress my individual points like I've done with you.

Yes, God does explain himself, but he is so vast that the more I learn, the more I realize my mind is not sufficient to grasp him, and I have learned more than most.
How can you know this when you have never seen or heard him or any evidence that confirms his existance? As I said, if the universe requires a creator despite the eternal nature of matter (which, like I've already said, makes scientific sense for it to alwasy exist), so does the concept of a god.

Well I'm an atheist, so I'm not going to have any religious beliefs, by definition.

Then where did God come from? He would be matter that came from nowhere.

What do you mean? If you're saying God created himself, then that's a paradox; he would have to exist in order to make himself exist - this is a problem loop that cannot be entered. Or have I misunderstood you?

We kill people who kill people to show others that killing is wrong.
