    Delmar's POD 3-21-14

    Your own view is self-defeating because if God is outside of time, then he didn't do anything before anything else. Even if there was a point when time began, God can't have done anything before that point. The very idea that time began is completely nonsensical.
    Post of the day!

    I said something similar to the highlighted portion, earlier in the thread, but not as eloquently.

    Can you show that time is dimensional?

    well no, it is a by-product of the burn of energy..

    physicist now call it time-space. not separating time and space.

    and space is a dimension and time is what happens when energy is transferred.

    What I am saying is that time as we know it will not exist without matter... and there is no such thing as a space without matter...

    EXCEPT in a different dimension or as the Faithful call it, the Spiritual world

    I'm still waiting for you to show this. I didn't ask you to simply tell.

    Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    Only if you assume time had a beginning.

    It must be assumed. You cannot have a point B without a point A.

    The concept, measurement, and meaning of time depend on what happens between point A and B. Without both, you have no time. A stop watch that you never press to begin cannot do anything regarding time.

    God cannot ever have had a beginning so there is no such thing as time (no point A) other than as it pertains to His creating (In the beginning).
