Also, how do you know there isn't a higher level of existence above God's? A kind of super-spiritual plane in which God's creator (and master) exists? If you're just going to keep assuming higher levels of existence, there is no rational point to stop.

"The universe is matter, it had a beginning; it will have an end, so it must be created, but God could not have been created." Well either everything needs a creator (in which case, so does God) or not everything needs a creator (in which case, it might as well be the universe). Why do you assume there is something other than the universe? It's a paradox to say "The universe began" as it implies time existed prior to the existence of the universe, which it did not. Furthermore, I don't see how you're making the leap from "It exists" to "It must have a creator." There is no evidence for this.

Aye, but what if the creator is also a creation himself? Then he, too, needs a creator. Your argument repeats into infinity. There is no rational point to stop assuming a creator, so I place my vote in the one thing that I can actually see; the universe. I don't see why the universe needs a creator to exist, as it very clearly exists but it certainly isn't obvious that it's a creation is it? If you find god's initials under a boulder or something I'll give you some credit.

The simple fact is that if God really was omnipotent, omnipresent, etc. he wouldn't care whether people chose to believe in him or not. This god would understand why you do the things you do, and would not blame you for them. This god would forgive regardless of whether the person acknowledged his existence and would never require it in order to receive his love.

"yes, some factors like drug can cause some unmoral process in brain and soul interpret them as dream. usually eye send messages to brain and brain processes them and send them to soul and soul Interpret and understand them. actually you are your soul and the body is only a tool in hand of soul for detecting and communication and control material world. drug make some false pulse in brain like unwanted waves in microphone wire that make noise in load speaker and soul Interpret them as enjoy." Do you have any proof that you brain sends this information to the soul for interpretation? I don't think it's right to comment on these drug-induced experiences without having experienced the falsity of it personally. It is a far different experience than what you could imagine. People (including your ancestors) have been making use of these substances for millenia prior to their demonization in modern culture. "do not worry. God is near you and if you love him, he helps you when you need him. do not you consider any role or power or help for God? you go to him and he helps you. please read this promise of God: http://tanzil.net/#trans/en.sahih/2:257" See how easily you are deceived into thinking he is good? He is truly a perfect deceiver. "God never wants people go to Hell. but people themselves insist to go to Hell. God does not prevent them. God sent them messengers, sent them books, guided them, gifted them wisdom, made many many signs in Nature for them, sent them messages in dream, and did any help and Guide. but still people still insist to go to Hell for ever." For some of us, a book will NEVER be enough. NEVER. God knows this, God knows what it would REALLY take for me to believe. If he falls short of that and still insists on sending me into the fiery depths, then he is truly malevolent. My demands are not unreasonable, if he desires so much that I live by his creed, and desires so little that I go to hell, then my standards of proof are not unreasonable.

Dear Brent Beach, the meaning of table of food is knowledge available about God. for example Koran is a source for knowing God. have you read it first? it is behind wall? it is in front of you: www.tanzil.net also many other sources. the table of food is ready. the eater does not enter to eat. there is not wall. The Koran is but writing upon the wall. There is no table to be actually seen, only descriptions of that table. I'm afraid you are merely seeing that which you desire to see. "there are 3 main type of sleep dream. only one type can be considered as results of physical processes in the brain." All of them are the result of physical processes. also processes in the brain does not any cause? brain is just a material (not important how much complex) and material itself alone can not Intend to start a process. It absolutely does matter how complex it is. Look at other mammals who have distinctly similar brains to our. These creatures are less intelligent BECAUSE their brains are smaller/less efficient and far less evolved. Yet these creatures also show distinct signs of personality differences, neuroticism and empathy (especially in the case of dogs). The things you describe are not unique to humans as we have known for many years that animals such as dogs dream. "also what you say about seeing future in dream?" It does not happen. I have higher standards of proof than you do. I would need direct experience to believe it. "still science has no clear and certain explain about sleep dream. please show if there is any. (not guess and hypothesis and maybe dream is ...)" And why is it you don't apply these same standards of proof to your own theories? Your theories have far less evidence backing them up than current popular scientific ones. "do you know such material (even most advanced computers and robots) that itself with no use of human Intend start any work or processes." I don't see the relevance.

"consider an infinite table of food in front of you and you are allowed to eat how much you want. you can not eat all, but this not mean you leave all." I think a more appropriate analogy would be you are standing in front of a wall and you TELL me there is an infinite table of food behind the wall. You tell me that we cannot really comprehend the table with our limited minds, being finite beings as we are, we have no hope of truly understanding it. You then proceed to tell me what items are on the table and what the table looks like. Suddenly, your understanding of the table doesn't seem quite as limited as you say it should be. Frankly, I just don't see any reason to think the table is there. Nobody has ever told me it was anywhere but behind a wall. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

"I believe such an entity could possibly exist because of the second law of thermodynamics, as well as the laws of causality. " I mean there is no reason to believe anything other than universe exists other than because you want to. The two things you say CAN make sense if you want it to, but that IS NOT what these laws imply, that is what you've implied based off the laws and if they WERE actually implied by those laws, they would say it. It wouldn't be an inference. Your twisting these things to apply to a belief you likely already considered true. "Your hypothetical situation implodes on itself. You claim that we cannot be certain of ANYTHING since He is omnipotent." Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. An omnipotent being would successfully deceive you 100% of the time. "There is no basis to which we can actually make a rational hypothesis in this scenario." Ahhh, now you're starting to get it. "But, let's say I accept your argument at a fundamental level... You claim He could be tricking us? Even if He is an infinite being, that does not mean His actions are all incomprehensible and infinite as well (as proven by our existence and the existence of Earth, the solar system, and the Universe in general). Benevolence is a comprehendible term. We understand that fundamental aspects of benevolence as opposed to harm and evil. It's not something you "feel", it is a logical conclusion." God can control how you comprehend things, he's omnipotent. God could control how your brain processes information, he's all-powerful, omnipotent.

I'm very glad people are still discussing this, I was afraid I'd come too late. "the dream and sleep is best proof for existing non-material things. if you know material well and know material is limited in time and place and know sleep well then you understand when you see a dream in sleep when your eye of head is closed, you are out of material universe at dream of sleep and that prove there are some universes out of material. this is one sample. other: the logic is a non-material thing. where is place of logic in brain? please consider logic of computer and compare it by human logic." Dreams and sleep can (and have been) shown to be the results of physical processes in the brain. Additionally, sleep functions as a time when the majority of your short term memory is transferred into long term memory. Drugs such as DMT, psilocybin and LSD have known hallucinatory effects akin to dreaming. In fact, DMT is a chemical produced in the brain which is theorized to be the source of dream hallucinations, given that DMT produces a hallucination indistinguishable from dreaming. Because these things alter our minds chemically, we can assume that our mind in general function on a chemical basis. All the things you described can be explained in this way. "some times in Intuition the Satan show some fake spiritual Images and some special lumine objects to human and try to cheat human to follow Satan. but it can be distinguished and avoided." No, it can't. An omnipotent evil being would successfully deceive you into believing he is good 100% of the time. You have no chance of distinguishing. "yes, right. but knowing not mean you have not free will." It does when the god intervenes in your life. There is no uncertainty for it, it knows the exact result of its influence. You WILL do what it wants you to do.

It was unfair to punish Adam and Eve because they didn't understand good and evil prior to eating the fruit. They didn't understand what they were doing was "wrong" because they didn't have the concept! Seems mighty unfair to punish someone without first giving them the knowledge.
