What is God? Who has made God? And why would God care about humans worshiping him?

We see debates between believers and non believers.
Non-believers say there is no God.
Believers say, there is a God.

If you are a believer:
1. How does you God look like. (Or what is he made of? Matter, unti-matter, dark matter, energy?)
2. Who made him/her?
3. Why he does not have another God?

    Jun 5 2011: One thing: I am speaking for myself. I don't know what other religions, denominations of Christianity, or even what other people think. But first, I don't know what God looks like. We picture him as kind of like the image of a grandfather, or the male head of a family. In the first chapters of Genesis, it is said that God created us in his image, and so we base his appearance on human features, although no one truly knows the specifics. To answer the questions of what is he made of and who made him, there is, ironically, no answer. God has always been here, and always will be. Finally, for the third question, I really don't know. I've never thought about it to be honest. However, I don't know how many people can answer that question. We don't always know, or understand, what God has planned. Maybe He has a reason as to why, or maybe He plans to involve Jesus in something. Like I said I don't know.

    Hopefully, this will help you understand our position a little better. Everyone has their own theories, and we'll never really know until the day we die.
    • Jun 5 2011: Thanks for the comments. My understanding from your comment is that:

      God is something we don't know what is it, how does it look like, and what is it made from, and how did he appear, however, (based on religion) we know exactly what he wants and how he thinks. Not quiet convincing to me though.
