As I am writing this I have just concluded a conversation outloud with myself trying to decipher the soundness of the existence of the biblical God. What I mean is, I question that what Christian's think of God, Muslim's think of God, etc.. is not actually the entity that created the universe, and instead a construct to rather help us understand ourselves and our (humanity's) place in the world; to bring some sense to it all. With that said, having read through the bible a few times throughout my life, I always seem to get stuck on various parts that seem to describe the biblical God with such clarity and surety that, suffice to say, it must be true. However, I always attempt to see the world through as logical and proof-driven a means as possible, the possibility of seemingly knowing for certain the qualities of the biblical God seems to be lacking in validity. How is it that Christian's, or rather almost any religion that purports to know the nature of God, seem to have such an intimate knowledge of the nature of the biblical God, such that they can then make so many of the assertions that appear in the Bible - creation, the Trinity, Jesus, the Old Testament/New Testament dichotomy, etc..? I'm honestly just trying to see what so many people seem to already see, and to know for certain, with logical consistency, the nature of God, so that from there I can start to tackle the nature of the world in relation. Thanks a bunch.
