This shall be a very interesting debate to explore, and I look forward to begin in round two.

Now i'm not talking about the Christian god, or any religion's god. I believe that somewhere out there is an omniscient being that is perfect. Now, since this omniscient being cannot be capable of sin because it has to do everything perfectly, this god cannot make its own choices. It can only do what's right. That would explain why no god has "helped" us through prayers, etc.

On to how this god was created. It was always there, created since the beginning of time or from another universe. That could easily explain the big bang, or that "universal switch" also sending interstellar particles.

Your turn.

There are a few things I would like to point out in your argument, daMANN. First off, isn't ignoring the pleas of the people sinning? What if someone prays for something that is morally right? Would this god not have to help that person? And
Secondly, if the god was created at the beginning of time, then what created it? If it came from an alternate universe, then why are we not worshipping the even higher power that was capable of creating a perfect deity?

Ignoring the pleas of a person isn't sinning in the god's eyes. Since it knows everything from any point in time and everything that will ever happen, it knows what will happen both if it ignores someone, and if it does not.

It is very much possible that there are multiple gods in this universe, (one is certain), and we could VERY much be worshipping the creator. The god in this argument could very well be the creator, if you can imagine such an experiment that could turn yourself all-powerful.

Since these gods are very likely to be from a separate universe, that universe could be completely different. Physics could be completely opposite from ours, there could be three time-dimensions and seven matter-dimensions. You never know.
