If you could ask God one question what would it be?

          If God came to your house and said that you have one question you can ask him and he will answer it what would you ask?

Hey that's such an interesting question. Mmm.. I think I would ask God why and how he created us.

how did create earth

He spoke and it came to be. What a pointless question because you can find the answer in the Bible.

Maybe TerriR20 was looking for a little more detail, the Bible is no I'ble ;)

It doesn't say how you could do it,(you couldn't anyway) but it says what he did it with lots of detail.

I beg to differ, Genesis offers anything but detail on the creation of Earth:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Also, you make too many assumptions:

You couldn't anyway

That's a rather bold statement. Remember that there were times when we thought the world was flat, or that we could never build a flying machine, or send people into space, or harness the power of the atom. In 1899 the Commisioner of the US office of patents said:

Everything that can be invented, has been invented.

Our assumptions and beliefs are going to be tested, and the impossible often becomes possible.

You also assumed that God is a man:

but it says what he did

God is not a man, men merely play God.

If the earth lasts a few thousand more years, humans might send a small "planet" into orbit. It would probably not have any life and take way more than six days to make. Also I didn't think that God is a man. The word he is a pronoun that describes gender, not species.

Genesis is pretty detailed on how God created the world. He spoke on _ day and _ happened. I don't know how you could get much more detailed than that.

Anyway, back to the original question. A person has its own opinions, but I think that is a pointless question because Genesis is pretty detailed on that subject even if you don't think so.

I have no doubt the earth will last many more millennia, but I do doubt that life as we know it will survive that long. But who knows what they'll conjure up in the LHC at CERN (either accidentally or intentionally).

Maybe we should clarify that we are using he as an indefinite pronoun, before we get accused of sexism.

And sorry to nit-pick, but while you can maybe argue that Genesis is detailed on how God created the world, it is rather vague on how he created the Earth (Earth and World are not strictly the same thing), and the creation of Earth was the original question.

I think we may have to politely agree to disagree.

Lord , what was the purpose of creating the Garden of Eden in the first place, when you knew from the very beginning of all the pain and suffering that was to follow? Is this some kind of entertainment for you ? I am sorry Lord, I just do not understand why!

My question would be:

Why can I ask only one question?
