Who was "he" talking to?
#1
Who was "he" talking to?
"And God said, Let there be light".

(a) Why would a god have to *say* anything?
(b) Who or what was around to hear and action the request?

God works in mysterious ways!
You just got to have faith!

If you question Gods existence you will burn in hell for eternity!

Makes plenty of sense doesn't it?

Just to play devil's advocate, if I remember from my Christian days, Genesis refers to the creation of the "physical" universe. The "spiritual" realm, IE Heaven and all the various spirit creatures that reside in it, already existed. So you could say he was talking to the angels I suppose.

God was a touchy and needy kinda God, hence his admonition to have no other Gods before him. So God was just showing off to the other Gods when he created this universe.

All part of casting a spell. You have to speak words of power, or do a ritual, or something. I know some theists don't like to use the word magic when it comes to their special god, but he's got to do something. Probably also has to do with the old belief that there is a spirit of the air, so to have something come to life you need to breathe the spirit of life in in. And of course ancient people didn't know that space is an airless vacuum.

Exactly! That's why prayer only works if your lips are moving. It's to do with cosmic resonance...
Chopra learned me that one!

But who am I to question God's mysterious ways?

God has all sorts of psychological problems, why should it surprise anyone that he talks to himself too?
Religions were invented to impress and dupe illiterate, superstitious stone-age peasants. So in this modern, enlightened age of information, what's your excuse? Or are you saying with all your advantages, you were still tricked as easily as those early humans?

Hello new person.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

I doubt that he was saying any words at all.  Take a look at literature through the ages and notice all the literary devices used.  Then you'll understand what is going on here.

Of course he wasn't saying any words at all, he's not real so it couldn't have happened. Big Grin
