Is god alive? June 12, 2007Posted by Joe in agnosticism, atheism, belief, creationism, evolution, god, religion, skepticism, theism.
When discussing evolution with creationists one of their complaints is that evolution assumes that it is possible to produce life from nonliving material. My response is twofold; first, if that is not possible then life must have existed forever; second, creationism makes the same assumption, but simply adds that god did it.
However, if god were a living thing it would fix both of those. Living things would have existed forever and no abiogenesis (creation of life from the nonliving) would be necessary.
So do theists consider their god to be alive?
