Not , if that eternal being exists outside space and time.
Sweet. I knew it would come to this eventually.
Can you even explain what this faux deep, very mysterious sounding explanation even means? How does anything - especially disembodied personality that somehow weilds ultimate power - exists outside
time and space? How does a decision get made without time?
I don't know if you realize or not, but the only reason you are giving this embarrassing excuse is to put god out of reach, intellectually. You see, many cultures, even the hebrews, thought their gods lived in specific places. The Greeks thought their gods lived on top of Mount Olympus. Until someone actually went there and found no gods.
The hebrew god had several homes. One was literally in the sky. That is why heaven (where god and the angels live) is the same word as the heavens (where the stars and planets are). Their god yhwh also lived in the tabernacle in the holy of holies in their temple. But, like the greeks, that was demonstrated to be obviously untrue when the babylonians crushed their kingdom and destroyed the temple. However, unlike the Greeks, the hebrews were not rationalists and could not deal with that reality. So they reinvented their god in a way that allowed them to avoid reality and continue to live in delusion.
You are continuing in that tradition. You have made a claim that is completely unverifiable - god lives
outside space and time. How would you even know? You just reasoned it out? Well, that's crap. The ancient greeks used to do that and it was a giant fail.
They'd sit around and propose things you and I know to be preposterous. They'd claim that the world was made of four elements and argue about who had the best model. But they never observed reality to see if their philosophy matched it and made sense.
And your problem here, buckaroo, is you have no way to observe whether god is outside space-time or not. So the rational thing to do, the smart thing to do, is to avoid that claim altogether. Otherwise you end up looking like a fucking idiot. I know, I know, you're immune to that. jesus H wants you to look like an idiot. jesus H blesses those who are spit upon for following him. Newsflash, Mortimer, you aren't following him and you're no martyr. That's just a fantasy.
As for your link to that shitty carm sight, it was a belabored example of special pleading. "Everything that exists must have a creator. You know. Except god." Yeah. There's some deep thinking for you. And that dipshit had the gall to start off talking about the "intellectual bankruptcy" of atheism. Amateur hour. You should be embarrassed to even post that link.
