Why does the universe have so many planets?----ADDENDUM




Mostly Christian critics think that I humanize God. That I ascribe to him qualities that apply to humans and out of human logic, namely narcissism. But that you can't transfer that to a Creator God, who is far above the human.


MY ANSWER:
Hhmmm, especially among Christians, the Creator God is often and colossally humanized! I almost said or wrote: That's exactly what the right people are telling me ;-) :-) If, for example, you speak of the kind and merciful Father in heaven: These are clearly human labels and assessments. With the same right I can then of course classify God as a narcissist who mainly practices self-love. (In any case, if I justify my assertion in detail. And this is clearly the case in my text!)
Furthermore, one can then just as little transfer "good and merciful father in heaven" to a creator god, properties to the creator, or everyone is allowed to do so. Keep equal rights for everyone!
See this also in such a way that a Creator God stands far above the human. But then it is also highly presumptuous to describe oneself as one's image - as Christians preach to us!! I also wrote the following text about this topic:
 https://www.e-stories.de/view-kurzgeschichten.phtml?45239
where I explain it in detail.

Judging God's work - the cosmos - is open to anyone with a mind. So I asked myself (among other things): Why in God's name are there so many planets and large moons? And I saw a creator who wants to get as much applause as possible from his telescopic technical intelligences for his fantastic giant work. I also explained this in detail in my text. Who sees it differently - no problem. But then it should also be explained why there are so many planets and large moons?? Just saying: Yes, it's just God's exuberant creativity is too easy for me:

Anyone who generally assumes a meaningful universe can also look for the deeper reason why there could be so many planets and large moons.

I like to read about the alternatives my critics have.

I also heard the following question: Why would God create animals etc. if you can't admire him and thus satisfy his supposed narcissistic needs? So there must be another reason. The animals are meant to serve us and are signs of God's incredible creativit.


MY ANSWER:
Yes, especially the lions - hyenas - piranjas - ants and slowworms (To name just a few of the hundreds of animal species that do NOT serve humans. Many animals to me are less a sign of God's incredible creativity and more an expression of legendary brutality. You only have to think of lions, hyenas and African wild dogs, who mercilessly eat their victims alive!! It can't get any worse! Human killings, on the other hand, are games.

The creator apparently leaves his principle good - albeit cumbersome and time-consuming - EVOLUTION PRINCIPLE rule alone.
Otherwise he could have created an infinite number of worlds with telescopic (etc.) civilizations.
He lives forever and therefore has a lot, a lot of time and probably also a lot of patience.

Some are a bit surprised what I mean think about it and what conclusions I draw about God.


MY ANSWER:
Yes, since I'm not a mainstream writer, readers are often puzzled. Novel thinking, even when original and well-founded, tends to meet with skepticism and resistance. I just have to live with that.
The fact that I generally think freely also leads to creative, unusual thoughts when it comes to God. Some welcome it, others are through the Bible and the like. set in such a way that contemporary, more reasonable and more logical thoughts are opposed by them. I have to live with that too.
For various reasons, society is not used to discussions about God, mostly because it is taboo. There shouldn't be any taboos in a democracy. In an open society, discussing everything is both trendy and possible. At least it should be. Setting taboos shows weakness. Fear of not being up to reasonable, free argumentation...
