it is funny how the popular Jewish god doesn't have a name and people tend to give "him" whatever name they choose!

Says a lot about his/her/its origin.

Really.

As complex as a car is, doesnt it have a maker?
So as more complex as the human is why wouldn't a human have a maker?

Just wondering.

As rhymz intelligently inquired, by that analogy, where do we stop? We only stop questioning when comes to the form of deity you believe in?

You must understand that it is much easier to make any wild claims than to prove them. Just last night I demonstrated to a fellow Nigeria why evidence is very much needed to ascertain the truth of any event. Take this sentence from the bible for instance...."Jesus walked on the river" Only change the the adverb and you have a whole different meaning which still makes sense. "Jesus walked by the river". How do we know the later wasn't the true event that occurred? To truly know, we need evidence. Do not believe anything until you have evidence and good reason to. This is how religion has worked over the past thousands of years.

As far as common sense prevails, using the complex design of an entity to prove that there is prolly a maker that came up with such design is limitless because one can also direct thesame argument to the complexities of the supreme maker entity himself. Doing so will show the folliness of such premise of argument. The fact God can not be proven to exists puts a very big dent to the claims of human religion of an existent supreme entity controlling things from nowhere above.
The best explanation to human existence is still the empirical evidence of science, it does not rest its argument or explanation on any dogmatic belief system or tradition that seeks to mystically define Who is god and what his characteristics are. Science is based on evidence and observation not dogma. So it is understandable if there are a million names for this human mental creation called God, afterall, it is neither here nor there.

mileseer:

You hold the wrong analogy. I will not divulge into why a car is a wrong analogy if you do not comprehend what I mean.

The hominid is not actually one of the complex organism. Water bears are biologically more complex than the hominid. I'm sure this has been said to you on a number of occasions - there is evidence, if you are ready to look at it that, we are descendant a long line of hominids. We are a product of million years of random chance.

First, you must be able to provide evidence your god (which one among the several that exist?) exist. Don't ask me to prove s/he/it doesn't exist since the negative cannot be proven. Prove it first and then we go from there.

First I did not say the human specie was the most complex. My logic is if I kept parts of a car and allowed it by chance to form a car,it woulnt. It would take an inteliigent being to do this and make a car.
In my opinion,complex life form even given billions of years and chance would not have formed life as we know it.
As per the analogy, that any inteligent being has to be made by one superior to it. As in God made man, so what made God? who knows, it could be Logically true. I have a broad mind and I am of the opinion that religion, sprirituality,Logic and Truth should never be separated. If God created us to think logically and even develop science why should he make certain thing illogical? Which begs the question, could it be that people just twisted the truth about life to suit their wordly pursuits of power and authority? Lol! Logic!

Psylas: because u don't feel His existence

By your assumption...I'm wondering which God you are actually referring to? Which one among the over thousands that exist? Would you be surprised to know I actually feel the existence of one right now? His name is BigFoot. It's a giant monster, and lingering in the sky. In fact it's the God that is making sure Nigeria isn't destroyed by earthquake.

I am sure you must be thinking I'm crazy....do you not? Well that is how crazy you sound to me too. You might require to see the evidence that BigFoot truly exist and it is all that I claim to be. How do I prove it is indeed the God making sure dear Nigeria isn't destroyed by earthquake? Do you want me to prove it? Well prove yours first. You made a claim...I also just made one. Lets see who's right

Firstly, that is wrong because you are an evidence to prove it can.

It is easy to use the blind watch maker analogy to describe the creator of the universe. However you enter an infinite loop of regress asking who created the creator. You cant stop at one place and say "I don't know". Why not stop at the start with that same conclusion rather than fill it up with a god and then stop there?

Now on your first statement, let us rewind the clock of time shall we? back to the earliest men that had no cars or any form of technological device. would you then have this analogy to use?

Is that the same as Yahweh?

@topic, i believe all his names are special. There was a time in my life when i needed divine healing, then i knew Him as El-Ropheca, later on, i came to know Him as my sheperd, but now, i have come to know him as:
Jehovah-Jireh (Gen 22:1-14), Jehovah-Ropheca (Ex 15:26), Jehovah-Nissi (Ex 17:15), Jehovah-Mekaddishkem (Ex 31:13), Jehovah-Shalom (Judges 6:24), Jehovah-Tsidkenu (Jer 23:6), Jehovah-Shammah (Ezek 48:35), Jehovah-Rohi (Psalm 23:1), Jehovah-Zebaoth (1 Samuel 1:3), Jehovah-Elyon (Psalm 7:17)

You might take a glance at http://www.spiritualblessings.org/names.html (to understand the significance/relevance of those names in case you do not already- many people already have an idea though)

you know when it comes to DUMBOs like you, I treat you like a slowpoke, an !diot worse than a slowpoke.
I have, in several occassion on NL schooled you about your own bible just to show you how steeewpid you are, you don't even know what is your bible and you dare want to mince words with people who are way more intellectually superior and have better life experience than you? You should be thankful for the privileges NL affords an ignoramus like you to even make attempts to argue with people you can't dare talk to in real life cos your very limited I.Q will fail you.
Anyway, enjoy the privileges, it is one of the very well known evidence of the good work of science, something Jesus can't seem to understand.

Wonderful analogy. That is why from place to place on earth there are diverse religions christianity inclusive. Just as I have asked, if the muslim God comes will he punish me in fiery hell for being a christian? And if the christian God comes will he punish all muslims (babies,infants,children,adults etc) for being muslims. He allowed them to be born into the muslim family. And this analogy can go on if we start assuming that hunduism, bhudism, or shintoism were the true religions just to name a few, will they punish others forever in Hell for been born and raised under different beliefs,religions and regions of the world? A fault not theirs? Hmmm.

Logic and philosphy. Love it!
