Who Made Me?

The question ‘Who made me?’ cannot be answered, because we have no experience or authentic information from which to answer it; and that any answer only throws the difficulty a step further back, since the question immediately presents itself, Who made God?

Autobiography, John Stuart Mill. First published 1873.

  1. Since God existed before time and space and all things that were created by Him, it is only logical to conclude that God is uncreated.

    The question, “Who made God?” is therefore, nonsense.

      If you back up a minute and reflect on what you’ve written you’ll see or should have seen the fallacy in your comment. “Since God existed before time and space …” starts with the premise that God exists. The notion or idea that God exists for most people today comes from three books (all from the same region and influenced by the same Judaic god) written by men who claim, without any corroborating evidence whatsoever, that their God exists and that their writings that a God exists are inspired by that same God. Pretty heavy stuff.

      The tragedy of humanity is that we continue to believe in this ‘God’ even now when we have more than convincing evidence that the writings of these men are false e.g. the story of creation in the Bible is 100% fiction. The so called ‘miracles’ are obviously made up since these things were the sort of fantastical events that happened in all other religions (read the Greeks for instance) that did not believe in the Judaic God but had very different Gods. We also know that many of the primary stories in the Bible e.g. Virgin Birth and Crucifixion were borrowed from other religions.

      Yet Christians (and Muslims) insist on believing in the fiction that they have been handed down inventing even more contortions of their own (e.g. God Is Love and Peace in a world where religious people are anything but) in order to continue believing regardless of the evidence against a ‘God’. It’s the idea of God that is nonsense. The continued belief in this God is a tragedy.

      • de3mola,

        God exists as a matter of reason. We do not have to believe in God in order to reason out his existence. In fact, to do that would mean that are engaging in circular reasoning.

        The proof of the existence of God is simple and does not require being told what to think by three different books.

        Anyone can reason out the existence of God simply by thinking systematically.
