  2. I likes it. I wonder too, in a rather unrelated way, how big and vast is a space-less, timeless, immaterial place where a god or gods might live? Is that place a something or a nothing? How do theists know this? How do they know that it is their particular take on their particular god that occupies said place? Where’s the bathroom in such a place? Can you get a decent meal there? How much for an overnight in a B&B there?

      I have though hard and long about how a spaceless and immaterial that exists out of time can do things and I have come to a blank. I am hoping the Allahists can explain it to us

        If he is outside of time, when would “doing things” even occur? Some kind of eternally present now?

        One writer I liked says that there is no such thing as “nothing” (no-thing) without a thing, so the very question is nonsensical.

  3. Very good mak, I likes this too! You have a way with words, and this is nicely concise.

    I feel the urge to quote Dr Suess – “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

  4. Makes sense to me. Maybe there is no such thing as nothing. It’s just a continuous something that changes with time.

    My Nairobi brother, you asked the question and you answered the question. There’s nothing left for us, your readers and followers to do. Unless…there’s something that you’re looking for that we just don’t see. I hope you’re enjoying your week! Much love and naked hugs! πŸ™‚

    Noel your statement has the directness and wise simplicity of ‘I think, therefore I am.” Great stuff out of nothingness πŸ˜€

    I was thinking with these type of cryptic, but profound, comments, you might be asked to provide a guest post by Colorstorm.

    This seems like word play to me. I don’t find it persuasive.

    But perhaps your insistence on an “answer” is in itself merely an artifact of human mentality? Why must the universe have a “cause” because human mental processes are based on locally relevant and valid sense of causality?

    Maybe the universe does not exist to provide answers to all of our questions?

    Why are we here?
    Because we’re here
    Roll the bones

    Why does it happen?
    Because it happens
