What made me confused at 1st was this: The world orignated from nothing. But what is nothing in nothing if there was never no nothing and how can something come from nothing and how did nothing/something begin from nothing/something in the 1st place.

you are acknowledging God
therefore you either have to repent of your sins or suffer his merciless hand when he throws you to hell where you will suffer an eternity of relentless pain wondering why you didn't give the lord a chance to change your life. You will ponder on this while your skin burns with a temperature that is almost unbearable and will wish for simple death as opposed to Satan's hate for you.
The lord has been patient with the world and his children, he tries his best to make sure your life has its' needs and for some its' wants. For the unlucky, well the Lord has a plan and it is flawless you just have to have faith that it will unfold perfectly.
Regardless he will love you, until you deny his existence and your heart.

Consider this: the God as the world knows Him know, as a variation of Zeus, Odin, Yehowa is a concept archaic and somehow degrading for human mind. It creates dogmas, ideologies, churches and so on. And it has been ridiculed many times, perhaps mostly by Xenofanes, who stated that "If horses had gods, they'd look like giant horses." And, sadly, modern religions cultivate the old way of concerning the Divine.

Although, what is possible for a developed human mind to accept is a Divine in pure form. Not a Vengeful Warrior, Loving Father, or Universal Mother, but The Reason, The Primum movens , The Ultimate Form. Aristotle's point of view perhaps more scientific then modern atheists' like Dawkins. Yet - when we consider the reality as cause-effect construct, it's hard for a logical mind to continue this chain forever backwards, ad absurdum. This kind of God I'm talking about doesn't demand belief, prayers, pilgrimages or any other. Why should the True Divine need something of purely human value? It's infinitely different from us, who are here, now, we live, die, change etc.

The methaphysical sense, as I call it, can be present in one and absent in the other - but the truth is that from shamanism to most sublimed philosophy, concept of the Divine exists. If taken logically, it ceases to be so repulsive. And in fact, the positivism, starting from the so-called "Age of Enlightenment", brought equally much good and evil. Science is way, knowledge is a purpose, never the other way round.

Alas, I can not make you believe in God, it is something that you must undertake yourself. For there is no proof against him existing, other than nobody seeing him, and there is no proof of him not existing, other than the fact that some things in the bible have been proven, at the very least as historic events. It is called faith for a reason, you must put your doubts aside and make the leap yourself, otherwise you will never believe. Since you are already presumably Athiest, you have made your choice and what I say in one post could not change your viewpoint on it.

Yes, I am indeed atheist.
I do have faith.
Although, not in God.

Still, you know how to speak wisely and I believe you are a very sane and intelligent person.
Have a great day.

Okay, think of it this way, you don't have to believe in religion to believe in a God. Religion is you going along with what someone else made up. But if you have your own strong theory about something, then you can have true faith in it. Also, don't think of "God" as an all powerful all seeing human that controls everything. Think of "God" as something, someone, some alien, that created our universe or at least started the chain reaction to our universe being created.

That's called Deism if you didn't know about it yet.

The only controversial argument I can exploit is that I don't need to know how/why the universe is created, why the earth is round or how time works.
Otherwise, good argument, but not good enough.
+1 for you.

Godzilla. God means God. Zilla means Lizard. God of Lizards.

Of course, it sounds like you're very open minded to the topic and willing to respectfully listen to someone sharing their faith with you.

As long as there is a concept of god there is a god, as he is like an entanglement in the image of doing good things and sometimes even sort of a placebo in some cases.
There is no wizard in the sky though, if that's what you thought before, which is pretty easy to not believe in.

If bananas have five peelings, then how come eyes don't evolve out of peanut butter?

God = 1
