    How can something have always been? No beginning, no end!

    Try chewing on this question awhile and see where you end up.

    If it is true that God has no beginning and no end then how that can be has no answer to be found. The answer would not exist.


    I am male btw.

    FriendofGod

    But the question was "something", it does not have to be God we are speaking of. Some people don't believe in a God, but still, no matter what, even if there is no God, something has to be eternal, and how can that be??

    Mat

    Impossible to fathom. Mortal man cannot wrap the mind around this reality.

    how about let me ask fog; how can god exist?his begining? his end? you state this fact 'god says; IAM'
    where did god come from, hes begining?, ofcourse you can't answer, you tell me god is god and he's eternal. hmmm i think i just now know why atheist are atheist. no wonder. maybe with this state of mind i might wander the same direction as them, mummy help me.

    doublehelix

    good question by the way are you a male or a female, not that'll influence my answers to your questions

    doublehelix

    hmmmmm i guess the answer only exists with god himself :( too bad we humans on earth can never know

    doublehelix

    hmm i think i need to switch my brain on a bit more, like you said i shall 'chew' on this question then i will be back to answer ;)

    Revelation 1:8 (King James Version)


    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.


    God has been, and God always will be.

    Time is an illusion. It is a measure of the delay between placing an empty pot into a basin of water and waiting for it to fill. Also how many pots of water can be filled with water over the course of a day, dawn to dusk. That events are delayed here is a condition brought about by a rhythmic rate generated at the center of all material common to this universe. Many people have experienced events where they have exceeded this constant rate and have actually moved faster or slower than this rate generator is ordinarily synced to. The control of time by such processes enables a person to do many things that cannot otherwise be done. Such as reliably win at games of chance often viewed as luck, and not being involved in an accident that is avoided without expressed intent. What is eternal is you...the personality you are. Here, we experience the delay of events we call time as part of our identity in our agreed perception of this universe.

    Ok Robert, so how can something have always been? Looking for knowledge here, not theories.

    If eternity exists then it could not have had a beginning and will not ever end. Things here seem to be in some sort of progressional state that is about change. Life begins with erection and goes through a process of continual change to some state known only to the creative powers. Beyond that, we're all in this together and trying to figure it out in the presence of the eternal is probably the most futile way to waste time. May as well enjoy the day and accept the eventuation of compost.

    Thats a question only GOD can answer. It like asking how far is up? How far can a spaceship go before it run out of space?

    Ashligh16

    Not only God can answer that. At one point we didn't even know about space. We just haven't found the technology to get further yet.

    FriendofGod

    God being Eternal would actually have no explanation either. How could God explain how He has always been? There is no explanation, only a statement of fact. God says "I AM".

    Headless Man

    There is no time to GOD.

    Understand that time is of the 4th dimension. god is in a dimension far beyond our own, such as the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th?.. who knows how far it goes. If you actually believe that God is a living being. God is the universe, and we are a part of the web of that truth. Time is not a factor when you live outside of time, spiritual energy is not affected by time, though our physical perception is.

    I would take a stab at it but the answer has no beginning or ending.. Like looking for the beginning and end of a M?bius strip.

    FriendofGod

    Ok, enlighten me as to what a Mobius strip is.

    Vinny

    Take a strip of paper about 1" wide and 12" long, twist it once and attach the ends. Now hold it, run you finger along the top and when you arrive at the same place again, you will be on the bottom. No begining, no end, kinda like a wormhole. (Google is your friend)

    robertgrist

    The unique properties of a Mobius strip is that if you are tracing the length then it can be said that the strip has only one side. But the universe has not collapsed into 2 dimensions. If it had then the mobius strip would suggest the existence of a third dimension. Are you confused yet?

    One has to step out of their finite mind, into a dynamic binary thought to understand this. No beginning and no end is describing the eternal realm. It is somewhat easier to understand this dimension if you can conceive it as spherical, where everything happens at once, in opposing duality.

    Do we all see the dillema here? We all, both believers in a God and atheist alike must accept that there is an Eternal SOMETHING that creates or generates LIFE. Something must have always been, no beginning and no end. How can this be!!!! Trying to understand this can really mess up your mind!

    Even God cannot answer how He has always been, He just Is.

    How about our atheist friends here on site, what would be your answer?

    Does anybody want to take a stab at this?

    All things begin with a thought. You've just asked the most ancient question of all. I believe the truth of this lies in evolution, but not the scientific theory of evolution.. one universe can birth other mini universes.. everything is always growing and changing.

    FriendofGod

    Does Evolution answer this question for you?

    FriendofGod

    Where did the thought come from? Did it always exist?

    anonymous_sender

    Something coming from nothing. That is what it is all about really. Just as a cell may split in to two, the observer does not understand the reason or how something can duplicate, how can something produce another thing, it must only use the resources available. But the resources are not physical as you believe, and the duplication is the act of will, working towards a greater meaning..

    anonymous_sender

    the resources are spiritual. This world is 1% physical, and 99% spiritual, as the true shamans believe. Our physical reality is manifested from spiritual truths, and that is why our lessons are so important, because they are the most real thing we have. Pay attention to symbols.

    The same is as before walking into a cave. Ponder going in. Walk around it. See the opening. But, when you walk in, how long do you stay? The time he enters is the beginning of the length of time he is there while inside. The moment he is leaves out of it, the time he was in it stops.

    The pondering has no time because he was in in it. The moment he leaves out of it, has no time because he is not in it any longer.

    With in the body there is limit. Out of it, has no time.

    See how quickly time passes when you sleep?

    Our Father, had no body like we. We are born, we are stuck in the body for but so many seasons.

    Quantum theory states that small particles can come into existence temporarily, then pop out again, by borrowing energy from the universe. Maybe over a very very long period of time, the build up of particles popping into existence was significant and physical laws about particular interactions governed the rest.

    FriendofGod

    Where did the small particles come from? Did they always exist? How can something have always been?

    Man cannot comprehend this reality. However, in the next dimension, God will eliminate our confusion.
