Gosh, what seems to be missing here? What could it be?

Oh, that's right, evidence. Whatcha got?

And if the universe doesn't require a creation or a beginning, then your God doesn't exist by default.

That is so vague as to be useless. What attributes does this god have? How does it "operate" the universe? What things have a beginning?

I see another kalam clown riding a unicycle blowing on a horn!

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

Oh... looky who rose from the dead. My Widdow Pachy Poo. Facepalm

Sorry. Your concept is incoherent. A god involved with "beginnings" is no deity. A god who creates has to make decisions, and do things and operate things. All those temporal concepts refutes her infinite nature. And if your Jebus-god operates the universe, why did he let so many babies die today ? Mean fuckin' god ya got there Pachy.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

God lets those babies die and go to heaven you see. And they die in the first place not by his will but because we are fallen - it's our fault. Ours. Disease and famine and war exist because we are in rebellion against God. God doesn't like naughty kids so he kills them in nasty ways. He doesn't like good kids either. They also die in nasty ways but they have the consolation that it's "for his glory".

A god defined as creator and operator is no more relevant than a man who just put up a zip line in his backyard.

And no, I don't bear hostility toward any god or its faith. I do not, however, like these followers thinking their faith should be my law or that I should bow to their will.

Funny, that. It was the final "aha" moment for no god for me - I was recovering from watching countless children die, and my husband was called out once again on another child rape case. And shortly before that seeing my first dad's community ravaged by a tornado - but it missed my parents' church - "cause Satan picked the wrong town!" Or how about a few years ago when my town and others were decimated by numerous tornados - neighbors searching for neighbors in the debris, only to be swept away when others came along the same path shortly after. The storms were too intense for me to make it the 20 miles to the hospital to work trauma.

'Cause sin/vengeful god/the fall? Fuck that. Cold air + hot air + humid = big ass tornado. Heavily populated areas increases the probability somebody gonna get sucked up Dorothy style. Not because they're a bad person, or men like sticking their dicks in other men's butts.

I contend that many times - shit does not "just happen".

....

In a large plurality of the cases, it's created by assholes.....
