So it is also 'supernatural' to the god as well? The god has no idea how it works... it just does? What gave it that power?
This is like asking a bird how it flies. It has no idea of the mechanics, but it is not supernatural, is it?
No not at all. The answer can just be because I am god. God by definition may well be an all knowing all powerful being.
All-knowing and can't answer a question - not very convincing, is it?
Asking god why he can make a universe is like asking why is energy.
How would you know what it is like asking god anything?
Mind you I am not making the case that god is true,
Here I agree
only that the possibility exists and the reason for his powers is not required for his existence.
That is not possible. The essence of "being a god" is the ability to perform supernatural acts.
For all I know he might well have an explanation.
And he explains and then he no longer has supernatural powers -> they are "natural" powers -> and he is no longer a god.
You see there is some evidence it was not pulled out of our ass. Supposedly people used to chat with the guy and watch his miracles first hand. They had first hand knowledge that god is as he is portrayed. You simply do not believe these people because their claims are incredible and they can not provide proof. But proof is not a prerequisite for truth, it most certainly can help with belief.
That argument starts with claiming there is evidence. Then it retreats to "supposedly". Then there is the statement that they actually had first hand knowledge of god. This is a non-sequitur. You have suddenly assumed that there is a god. If you do that then you do not provide a proof, or even evidence.
I am unsure what you mean by
You simply do not believe these people
Do you mean "you" - i.e. me, or "you" - i.e. people in general?
Whatever the answer, the stories are no more authentic than Harry Potter. They defy the known laws of physics and medicine and they are only recorded in one volume comprising several books by unknown authors. I think it is necessary to dismiss them otherwise we must believe in fairies.
as for how does god direct energy??? again because he is the supreme being, may be the only answer. He knows exactly why, because I am god and i can do anything.
You are arguing in circles. You have gone back to "God did it." No explanations, no tests, no data, no independent analysis. Really, this does not cut it. If God is all-knowing, he knows how he does things. If he told us, then his powers would be natural, wouldn't they? And this He would no longer be a god.
Finally I am not saying there is a god. I am only saying that there is text evidence for god, that a god can defy understanding by his very nature.
No, there is text but there is no evidence, is there?
simply that a lack of proof that meets your standard does not disprove god.
I have not argued that. I have argued that gods can do supernatural things -> if they (i) explain how they do it or (ii) you find how it is done, then the powers are not supernatural, they are notural and thus the god vanishes.
I don't "believe" god exists, but I know my inability to reason something out does not mean it is not so.
So you claim that you believe that everything that the human mind can possibly imagine may exist? You realise that this would involve an infinite amount of objects and creatures that may well be "out there somewhere? My creature is a flying leopard that is used as a lamppost except when it delivers beer at night
. Now, you seem to think that could exist merely because you can't reason it out.
PS: Why did you put "believe" in quotes? Is that a special meaning?
