Do any of you ask yourselves why we even debate the existence of a Creator? The fact that this is a question on our minds begs the question of "why we desire to know the answer to this question". Where there exists a desire there first existed a need. A purely materialistic naturalistic existence would never spawn the desire to ask the question "who or what created us" and "what is our purpose"? We ask these questions because we are meant to seek the answers. In essence, our question about "who created us" helps to prove the existence of a Creator.

Thank goodness! The philosopher is back! Logic and reason have re-entered the discussion. Quite correct! Posing the question, is much like Descartes "I think therefore I am".

A neuroscientist might say though that the reason we ask is the pineal glad produces biochemicals.

The inner desire to posit the Prime Mover, the original force that set the Universe in motion, makes us think of God. If so, is that the basis for wondering about a relationship with such a being, and hence how spiritual systems happen?

This is so much better than the blather being discussed most of the time here.
