If god is good and all-powerful, and our logic is true there must exist infinite universes?

Am I thinking correctly here?

1. Let's assume God created the universe.

2. If God created the universe, and God is good, having a universe must be better than not having it.

3. If God is all-powerful he'd have the ability to create an infinite amount of universes. And the more universes the better.

    Yes. You are right. It is a genuine confusion. I think, we should unite all moral forces in the universe and try to achieve what you want in our life.

    Your argument is with ease refuted. It is fairly nothing greater than the historic, worn out First rationale Argument for the Existence of God. Let's simplify your statement. Premise 1 - everything has a rationale. Premise 2 - Nothing can purpose itself. Premise three - There can not be an infinite chain of causation. Premise 4 - There ought to, therefore, be a primary intent. Conclusion - the first cause is God, hence God have to exist. The difficulty with that argument lies between Premises 1 and a pair of. If the whole lot has a motive and nothing can rationale itself, then God ought to have a cause, and the reason of God have got to have a purpose, and so forth. With no sign of ending. That, nevertheless, violates Premise 3. Premise 1 could be rewritten to say "either the whole thing has a rationale or some thing exists which didn't have a reason." On the outside, that seems to solve the problem. But does it? If we're going to attribute to God the ability to self-create, why will we now not also attribute that capability to the Cosmos, therefore negating the need for God? In any case, your argument seems to be established on the assumption that the large Bang was once the starting of the Cosmos. That's not always the case. There's a cosmological idea that is gaining help in the scientific world. That concept postulates that the event we discuss with as the enormous Bang was nothing more than essentially the most latest generation in a sequence of significant Bangs. An great guide on the area is "The Universe before the giant Bang" with the aid of physicist Maurizio Gasperini.

    1. God created the universe.

    2. God is good

    3. Therefore having a universe must be better than not having, and an infinite amount of universes is the best.

    You really don't understand things do you? God is whatever you want it to be or don't want it to be. God is a creator, God is not a creator. Who makes the decisions here? The mind can choose what it thinks is better or worse.

    Many would say suffering is bad. How can a personal God be all good if logically there's infinite evil in the infinite universe?

    Try not to involve theology in your understandings and it will be easier to understand things.

  • You've assumed that because one is good more is better. There is nothing to establish this. You also assumed that a good God wouldn't allow one of his creations to go bad (say by it's own free will.)

    You could logically say:

    If there's an all powerful God, and

    If God created the universe, and

    If God is good, (i.e., incapable of creating or allowing bad)

    then the universe is good; and

    If more is better than less,

    then God created infinite universes.

    But it sure has a lot of assumptions.

    Edit: I'm uncomfortable with assuming both "all powerful" and "incapable." I guess it depends on the definition of these words. Change "all powerful" to "unlimited power to create universes," and I think it works.

    1. lets not assume anything that has no evidence.

    2a. Evidence needed for "God created the universe"

    2b. Evidence needed for "God is good." Bible shows 'him' doing very evil things like killing anyone who disagrees with 'him'.

    2c. How is "...having a universe must be better than not having it." connected to a god?

    3a. Evidence needed for "If God is all-powerful..."

    3b. "...he'd have the ability to create an infinite amount of universes." So? If Santa is all-powerful he'd have the ability to give every child on earth hundreds of presents. The statement proves nothing.

    To sum up, you ask "Am I thinking correctly here?". No, superstition has never answered any factual question. The existence of a god or any other supernatural being is pure superstition.

    1 Assumption. Alright.

    2 No correlation between the ability to create a universe and the quality of personal goodness.

    No correlation between the assumed decency of god and the virtue of having an existent universe over non existence.

    3 No correlation between omnipotence (specifically, the ability to create an infinite number of universe) and the merits of having as many existent universes as possible.

    You are thinking in human, finite terms which belong to the realm of duality such as good versus bad, the having and not having.

    God, the Universal Presence, is ABSOLUTE. = GOD IS. What comes after is simply relative to the thinker.

    No doubt there are countless stars, galaxies, and universes, but they come and go, so in themselves they have no relevance to us except what we give it. Why and how is that? Because we are in essence an emanation of the Divine Life.

    Most people do not yet realize their true "Self" and think only of the body and mind as their "I", which is really a personal concept and not a truth. Your soul-mind is infinite and eternal.

    Explanatory analogy (corny, but just read it):

    A camera zooms into your eye...

    The whites of your eye disappear as it looks into your pupil...

    Down to the cells, atoms, quarks, then darkness...

    Eventually a misty haze appears along with small glimmering dots of light...

    The camera zooms closer...

    You see innumerable clusters of galaxies...

    The camera then zooms until only one is seen...

    A bright sphere whirling at its center...

    The camera zooms into a small blue pebble...

    Clouds appear...

    Land...

    Trees...

    A figure...

    The camera then zooms into you gazing up at the night sky...

    It looks deeply into your eyes...

    (Rinse and repeat)

    Do you think that looking outwards into the vast expanse that is our universe could be the same as looking inwards into the tiny building blocks that make matter? Furthermore, do they lead to another dimensional existence? Perhaps in a cycle?

    Just a crazy thought...but I think it's relevant to what you are asking.

    yes, id say your on the right track, but look at the universe or current reality as 'finite'its the size needed to fit your current perception or room to grow...check mybigtoe on youtube
