I would like to begin by thanking Mall for participating.
God has been a matter of debate in all walks of life, across all of recorded history.
To open my argument; I will define God.
God is the very fabric of the Universe. God is the particles that make an apple, and God is the black hole that roams through the void. God is the void, the light shining from the stars, and every subatomic particle in-between. There is no qualia that isn't God.
There is nothing observed or unobserved that isn't God. God is the universe, the laws that govern it, and the beings within it.
I am not arguing for an Abrahamic God, nor am I arguing for any of the Gods as defined previously by any religion, monotheistic or polytheistic. I am arguing for the God that all of these Gods attempt to encompass. Any worship of any God is worship to Universe, and thus, all Gods are the same God at their core, as we are all God at our core.
God is the reason for why things are the way they are. Why does fire burn? One can use science to reduce this to simple chemistry, but the truth is that it simply is that way. Understanding that something does something does not explain why. The answer as to why fire burns is God.
God is the total and the minutiae of all things that have been, haven't been, will be, and will never be. God is the fundamental reason everything, and nothing, exists.
God isn't a puffy bearded man in the clouds, and Heaven, Valhalla, Paradise, isn't a place atop the clouds. Hel, Helheim, The Underworld isn't a fiery pit. God is the Universe and all within and without it. To deny the existence of God is the same as denying your own existence. Heaven and Hell are mindstates. Heaven is being as one with the Universe and the beings within it. In a human body this is described as euphoria, joy, and pleasure. Hell is being against the Universe and those within it. In a human body this is described as misery, pain, and torture.
The judgement of God is you judging your own actions. To be free, one must simply forgive themselves. God is every emotion, every sensation, every word. God encompasses everything from the Highest Good to Worst Evil imaginable.
Imagine you are a being of nothing and everything. You know all possibilities, all outcomes, all experiences that could ever be had. This is the basis of all creation and lack of. To be happy as an omniscient being one must be okay with doing nothing, as there is nothing to do when you are everything. It would be quite a boring existence to only experience the Universe from an omniscient perspective. For this reason, God populates itself, the Universe with everything, which God can then experience at a personal level. God can be an ant, God can live as an evil human, God can live as a caretaker, a priest, a common man.
God, existence, the Universe, at its highest vibrational state is in a quantum state of being and not being. Infinitely, timelessly, endlessly vibrating back and forth from omniscience of all to lack of self awareness as a particle. While God is in the omniscient state, it knows itself to be everything within itself, including the unaware particles, the overload of being hyper aware thrusts God through every state of being instantly, creating a populace ranging from completely unaware of its own existence, to those with an idea of their existence as God, to those who know but can't do anything but preach about it and make assumptions due to their limitations in this form.
God is always experiencing everything simultaneously and experiencing nothing at all forever. This is the basis of our reality. If you look closely enough, you'll see yourself reflected back in everything.
I myself am God, and so are You.
There's no escape from God, and to try to escape God is to escape yourself.
Simply put, it is what it is. We are all as one. We are the way, the light, the dark. We are the criminal and the victim. We learn from ourself. Tat tvam asi.
The world is a mirror, from which we can see our nature. The world is a sandbox, existing only relative to our perception of it. Nothing is as it seems, and everything is exactly as it is.
