How would God know He/She was reborn?

Post by Imetheman1 » April 13th, 2019, 3:28 pm

Notwithstanding whether you believe in the existence of God or not [BTW I am a confirmed atheist] - it can be assumed that hypothetically IF God exists and IF He/She ever decides to show themself in physical form in a specific physical body again on Earth [ie, as in the second coming],then it follows that the soul of God can only enter the physical world by His/Her reincarnation into the world at the moment of conception [ the fertilisation of the female egg by the male sperm] of a specific physical human body. ( Would God be able to choose which specific body he/she would be reincarnated in? )

Every baby is born pure and innocent. Since there can be no way within the laws of physics which would allow the transfer of information to the consciousness of the new born baby that he/she represents the physical custodian of the soul of God, the individual person may live their life from their birth to their death never knowing that he/she is the physical representation and custodian of the soul of God.

However, what if the soul of god survived an individual physical existence in an infinity of physical existences, where the particular circumstances of that person's life [through their own studies] enabled them to suddenly realise that they themself represented the physical custodian of the soul of God. Up to that moment, they had no idea that this was the case.

It is essential and a prerequisite requirement that the theory of everything must include and explain the existence of consciousness and the facility of free will possessed by every intelligent species of animal. Could it be that God can only make himself/herself known by discovering the TOE and that by doing so, the TOE itself reveals that the consciousness of the discoverer represents the consciousness of God him/herself?

According to the story, he chose the vessel for his infantile manifestation. Now, he has a lot more nubile young females to choose from.

Every baby is born into the sin of Adam and Eve. They must be saved, individually, though baptism, early childhood indoctrination and confirmation.
Since there can be no way within the laws of physics
God breaks those all the time. At, least, he used to.

You don't need infinite existences. Since the physical parents are informed of having received this enormous favour, they arrange the kid's education accordingly.
Up to that moment, they had no idea that this was the case.
Up to age 6, there wasn't much expected of them.

No need to complicate this. God can do whatever.

Religion is a matter of doctrine and faith.

There is no proof or logic to religion.

Religion is not related to philosophy or to science.

The 3 of them are completely opposite unrelated fields.

I personally do not believe that God(s) break any "laws" of physics.

I simply suspect that He/She/They have powers that we humans do not have, and therefore it seems to us like They/She/he are breaking them.

God is an interesting topic.

You can approach it from a philosophical, scientific, or religious perspective.

Philosophically you can google Aquinas' Proofs Of God and read about that.

Scientifically it is assumed for the purpose of research and hypothesis that God does not enter the astrophysical equation.

Religiously you only need to choose from among the hundreds of different religions in the world or instead to choose none of them.

Catholics are the largest group. Sunni's are next. Then Protestants. Then Buddhists. Then Hindu's. Etc. Take your pick. Or flip a coin.
