So you finally accept that God exists. I thought you're an idiot.

Usually when something is created it could be assumed there is some purpose, with God, since He is not created has no purpose.

But, since He exists He can create purpose, meaning there is purpose in creation.

And please Bul, don't go and say the question was not answered, that I dodged it or that I'm scared, the answer is in the first sentence lol, there is none since He was not created into existence.

There is no reason or purpose God exists, why is that a problem? "It" doesn't need a reason or purpose to exist, only creation need that, as explained.

Would you agree with this view, since your god can create purpose because he exists, a human, in the absence of a god, can create purpose because they exist?

There is something intrinsically inane about any question that begins with "why".

Without God, you wouldn't have a purpose, that's for sure. You wouldn't even be here.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of the will of God. The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth,

Try this thought experiment.

Sit down and think of everything that led up to this exact moment. Go back as far as you possibly can.

When you are done, wait maybe a half an hour.

Then repeat the experiment.

If you can't figure out how "why" is an intrinsically stupid question, it's probably because you're dumb.

Go back to the big bang, you'll get more out of it.

I mean, assuming you accept the big bang.

You should get the picture, I'd hope.

You should be tracing lines of causality here.

"Why" is a dumb question, because it implies linear causality, which is terrible over simplification of what is actually going on.

You want proof? Do the experiment. That might be too much to ask of someone who is intellectually lazy, but hey. I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here.

Being scared of you is a waste of time. When you die, everything you ever did will be washed away. There is a spirit inside of you that will always be. Likewise, there are demons inside of you that go from body to body, and they don't need you to perpetuate themselves. They have plenty of vessels to work with, and they will do their work as long as there are vessels to work with.

You? I do not fear you. You are a mortal man, and a foolish one at that. I would love for you to come to the knowledge of God, but it isn't my domain to soften hearts. This is God's doing, as he is the one who hardens and softens hearts as he wills.

Until then, I'm going to have fun mocking you. You may not get anything out of it, but I'm sure an impartial on the fence observer can plainly see that I'm being a jerk, and you're being an idiot.

I wouldn't advise you mysterious observers to emulate me being a jerk. It ain't the way we are supposed to treat each other. I'm playing on the internet. I'm talking to robots. Its a nice stress reliever if you are constantly around crazy people, and have to maintain your charity with them. Don't be an arsehole, kids. Think of Jesus. He wasn't an arsehole.

If he has no purpose why all the rules and why do you worship a meaningless rump.

"The rules" in Christianity are simple and for purposes of spiritual purity to withstand abiding in the light of God.

Why would God need a purpose for existing for me to admire and adore Him? that doesn't follow, does any of the people you happen to love or admire need purposes for their existence to do so lol? God is still a mind, a Person, an individual and an amazing Being, despite not having any purpose for His existence but as I said, that's what all this creation stuff is about, giving meaning and purpose.. pretty cool right?

Why do you have such a negative view of God always? why do you always envision the worst of everything? why not turn that extremism into a different function of the same tool and direct it at positive and progressive outlooks and look at the good things?? you have a set pattern that you seem reluctant to break away from, ya know new things feel good Bul and not everything is bad there are many really wonderful things that you miss about God and His existence because you want to focus on only the negative, maybe it's time to shake loose some of them cobwebs...
