You can't prove there is a god, nor prove there isn't a god. That is why people of religion always suggest faith. If you try to prove either you will pretty much go insane. If you are a person who tells people that their isn't a god, and make them feel guilty about it, you are just as bad as a religious person forcing religion on people. Because in either case, you are forcing your belief to someone who isn't interested. It is best to just respect and not discriminate. As long as you are a person of good nature, you don't need religion. So respect one another.

when did time start? the question when did time start is meaningless. to ask the question when did time start is to ask at what time did time begin, but that is an absurd question, because for there to be a time when time started then time must have already been in existence at the time it started. time is a human concept of measurement that we use to organise our lives, while in reality as long as anything existed so did time. you are just reducing the concept of existence to something that you as a human can understand, whereas existence is something beyond what you can understand. and as to the question who made god? you did. you have made him into what you want him to be, which is something so small he doesn't exist. but then your concept of time is wrong, so why should we rely on your concept of god?

but the big bang is also a human concept, the proof of which is being sought at great cost at the hadron collider. but in any case, who made the big bang?

The start of time is as mysterious as God himself. God is a being that you can choose to believe or not but for me, I believe in God. No one made God because we were made by God who is a higher being. God is a name created by men but this being might actually exist. The more you look into the mysteries of life and science the more you believe that there is a higher being manipulating all of this. We're just a galaxy away from being sucked into a black hole or just a string of distance from being burnt to crisp by the sun but here we are, our planet is at a perfect location in the Universe but only a hairstrand away from all of its dangers, how was this possible? Just a coincidence? Until the mysteries of science are explained, one would be able to believe that the perfect creation of the Universe and human themselves is created by a higher power - you can call him God or Alien but it is a big possibility that he exists.

The bible says in Genesis 1:1 IN THE BEGGINING, God created the heaves and the earth. The meaning of beginning is: commencing. start. origin. stage of early period. origin. That is the meaning of the beginning and about the time, beginning is a not determined time.So that question have a mysterious that only God knows. God is the creator so doesn't needed to be created,God is the high and lofty one that inabiteth in the eternity.Isaiah (57;15)

Quantum physics shows that many dimensions do exist. Is it really that hard to picture one without time?? We are all spiritual beings in our true natures. We are confined to this physical universe through our physical bodies. Lessons are easier to teach within a realm of cause and effect. Other than that and this physical universe would not exist at all. There would be no purpose.

Answer to your first question: No one knows "when" time started. Time has no beginning and no ending. Who made God? Same answer: God supposedly has no beginning and no ending, so nobody made Him.

Time started when the big bang happened. Before that, there was no such thing as matter, so everything would be traveling either at, or beyond the speed of light, and when that's the case, there is no such thing as time, anymore. Everything just stays completely still. Then, the "who made God" question can go back infinitely. If you can say who made God, then who made whatever is was that made God? Then who made that? I think a better way to look at it is, chances are, there is no God.

That is a very difficult question. if you ask somebody who doesn't believe in god he/she is going to say that the big bang started everything. If you ask a Christian, he/she is going to say that God made everything and he always existed. If you start to study other ancient religions they all have different beliefs but something in common-- they invented gods to have the answers to their questions. The Egyptians believe that the Sun was their god and he was named RA every night RA was swallow by the sky. You see no religion is right or wrong because everything is the product of the imagination to fill in the blank to the questions we don't know. I do believe that there is a higher being, but we'll meet it when is time for us to go. In the mean time nobody has the right answer to this question. You believe whatever it feels right to you.

Time didn't "start"; it was invented by humans, just like God.

If you believe in science you may go through the process of how planets were separated from Sun how earth was made. Life on earth is result of many natural processes. Thus, you may conclude there is no God its just nature who move the whole system. You may find time would be started since the earth was born. If you don't believe in this theory, then God has neither starting nor ending, and time also has no starting and ending. Its a circle which moves, no one can find circle's start or end.
