Why there can only be one God

20 posts in this topic

I was watching a talk recently from a biblical creationist and someone in the audience asked a question. It went something like this: If God is outside the Universe, outside space, matter and time i.e outside of everything we know, how can we logically assume that there's only one God?

His response was rather brilliant, although he doesn't know how close he is to figuring out what God really is.

He said:

1: An infinite being lacks nothing

2: For two beings to differ, one must lack something the other has.

3: But a being that lacks something is not infinite

4: Therefore, there can only be one infinite being.

Even though this was coming from a Christian creationist trying to make his point about the Christian God, I couldn't help but smile how beautifully he summarized absolute infinity. I understand much better now, logically speaking that is, how there can only be One.

Just wanted to share this :D

@8Ball the christian god is no other than the same one infinite god

yes, most Christians... like Muslims and others think God to be up in the clouds and what not... but it's the same one God.. the One Infinite. The infinite

@8Ball That is a nice way to frame it.

That is correct. Absolute Infinity cannot lack anything because it is total.

Totality can only be singular. You can't have two totalities otherwise they weren't totalities to begin with.

Or you could say that God is the totality of all sub-totalities.

How can an infinite being be outside the Universe? It's INFINITE after all.

I bet I could bring my brother around to this conclusion..... Just got to think where to start. He already believes in a god that encompasses all, but has no concept of oneness.

There can only be One God because there is no other. This is realized in Total Oneness, in total Aloneness as God. The only way to know God is by faith in Him, by becoming aware and conscious of him. By being aware of His presence. By being aware of His love for us. By becoming conscious that we are loved unconditionally and fully.

Can't you have two infinite beings? 

No. Because to have two beings one must have an end where the other begins. So, none of them would be infinite.

 


The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

See video: Understanding Absolute Infinity - Part 2 wherein is discussed Georg Cantor's set theory, which explains how multiple infinities work.

There is an infinite number of different sizes of infinity. Which all adds up to one Absolute Infinity.

@Leo Gura So basiclly all I have to do is to accept that  I am IT(not wanting to put name on it) and Dark night Will be gone. 

This shit is so damaging I have no words for it. 

How you can deal with that you are actual source of existance and that you are everything?

Can you make a video about it. 

This shit lasts for months. 

I do love everything I do, honestly I do. Do not Wish to do something stupid.

Amazingly numerical infinities have various sizes.

Watch the video, Understanding Absolute Infinity - Part 2, where the work of Georg Cantor is explained.

Absolute Infinity is not the same as a numerical infinity. Absolute Infinity doesn't have a size. It is simply reality itself.
