Why is it so hard for you to imagine anything existing without a creator, but it's easy for you to imagine a creator existing without a creator? Consider
It's the very same problem...

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

You're not understanding the proof. That which is uncreated has no cause. It's uncreated.

It's pink and wrinkly. Weeping

Now I'm disappointed. Sad

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

The Universe is uncreated. Boom.

The universe can't be uncreated because if it always existed in a past eternity of cause and effects, you would by that definition have had an eternity to come into being before now, so you should have already happened.

Wait.. If something is uncreated doesn't that mean that it wasn't created? If something wasn't created doesn't that mean that it don't exist?
Ain't word games fun?

Look, dude, Jesus said the kingdom is in all of his believers. I just want to know what I'm in for, should I become a believer and Jesus decide to put his... "kingdom" in me. Hope he knows some good restaurants! Wink
I'd set up a flame shield, but, as you can see from my avatar, fire and I have a loving relationship.

Special Hidden message for hbl: Your God is challenging you to go publicly declare your love of Christ in North Korea - please open your heart and listen. I'm sure there are some Christian organizations that would help you buy the plane ticket. If you die it won't be termed suicide, you'll be a martyr! You might even get a hospital wing named after you! Just think how many crowns in heaven you'll earn to lay down at christ's feet! Angel

I like statistics, too. There is a correlation between higher IQs and atheism. Or to put it differently, those with lower IQs tend to be religious.
There are certainly outliers, but I'd hedge my bets that you're not one of them. Bless your heart.

Uncreated means it exists but has no cause since it always existed.
