Why doesnt god just say, " here i am!" To the world, so we can all be on the same page, with everyone knowing what is going on?

Maybe it means lesser punishment since we aren't as accountable for our mistakes, or maybe God planned for this reality to be true test of character and this test couldn't be administered accurately if we had knowledge of God.

According to the gospels, Jesus walked around, preached a pure and beautiful message, performed miraculous signs everywhere he went, and people still demanded that he be crucified.

If the clouds parted open, trumpets blared, and angelic beings flew around everywhere, people would probably attribute it to project bluebeam or something.

The Jews who saw everything that God did when they were following Moses constantly grumbled, complained, and turned away from God.

The point is, no miracle is going to satisfy the infidel for very long. A short while later, and they will probably question whether or not they were hallucinating.

Faith has to come from something more solid.
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,

If God is metaphysical, meaning beyond space and time, then, the sentence, "Here I am," does not make sense as applied to God.

However, if God is an imaginary concept, something which exists, only, within the imagination, again, "Here I am," as applied to God, does not make sense. For, place and time belong to the real world, the world of objectivity.

Either way, God is metaphysical; and, any qualifiers are completely relative.

He's still resting after the exertions of creating everything in 6 days. Apparently it really takes it out of you, this creative design process. I'm sure that once he gets over his funk we might hear from him again. He's just weary.

I have another theory: that he is rather absent minded. He created the universe and then forgot where he put it. He knows it's around somewhere but it's lost in amongst all his other knicks and knacks. One day he'll find it again and then look out, more fun and games.

For the same reason Mother Nature does not say " Here I am " so all people can believe she exists.

It all depends on how one perceives and defines the label.
The label exists but what is it portraying, or teaching? Something real or something mythical or both at the same time?

God is everywhere.

If he is undetectable, how do you know that?

Because it doesn't exist is the most likely explanation.

Because it doesn't exist is the most likely explanation. : :

There are plenty of us who know that God exists to know that you're a liar.

Who? Name them. If yo are going to call someone a liar, back it up with evidence. ::
My wife, my daughter-in-law, Steve, Steve, Steve, Jim, Jim, Carol, Carol, Tim, John, Tom, Tom, Ray, Larry, George, Lynne, Guy, Guy, Suzy, Tim, Sandy, Ron, Ron, Brian, Bryan, Terry, Bob, Robert, Scott, Scott, are names of a few chosen believers who love hearing the voice of God and listening to the knowledge that flows from it.

Proof? : :

Yes. All these chosen believers are proof to me that I'm not the only one in the world who knows God.

Any proof? : :

There is no proof for you. You will have to observe your body dying first before you wake up in Paradise where you won't need any proof to experience life.

2 guys 2 Scott's and a suzy however is.
Congratulations you've done well son.

I'll raise you one Gustav and a Ravi.

God is not at all elusive, his son set up a way for you to be with God if you choose too..

NONE of God's people can choose who they listen to. If you were programmed to be a Christian who believes in an imaginary false deity in your mind after reading a book called a Bible and you interpret it to mean that Jesus is your lord and savior, then you had no choice to believe that lie.

Atheists have no choice but to be atheists and we saints and prophets who testify to the Word of God have no choice but to do and say exactly as God planned it.

Do you believe that one will be ultimately judged based (at least partially) on whether one simply believes in God or not?

2.5 billion living Christians, 1.5 muslims, countless other theists, and your conclusion is that God is elusive???

Perhaps by "elusive" you mean God is difficult to see. Is that what you mean? If so, that would be quite a creative way to use the word "elusive".

Anyway, to your specific question, If God popped up and said "Here I am!" Everyone would die. I don't think God wants that.

But also, even if everyone wouldn't die, we still wouldn't be on the same page of all know what was going on.

So due to our limitations, God couldn't do it that way, He had to do it another way.
