Mansoor: Read my post more carefully, it does not say what you say it does

>>Plato....once again..a misdirected missile fired. You built a long alternate scenario with a logic one can only laugh on!!!

On the basis of my scenario you created an alternate without highlighting the fact that the original designer either left the room or died..!!!<<

Mansoor, you don't seem to have read my post carefully. In my scenario I had mentioned the first so-called designer leaving the room to powder his nose: "Another scenario: After the designer leaves you to visit the rest room, along comes another person…"

>>… so that another person found it extremely easy to boast and claim that the garden belongs to him and it is his creation.<<

In my scenario the second so-called designer does exactly that ie boast: "…I am the real designer he tells you and shows you the bees sucking nectar…"

>>if we presume that it happens in the case of God when another entity claiming to be God tries to impose his rule....then, there would have been a great clash in those two entities.<<

This is where your imagination remains at the human level and does not reach godly heights. You have assumed that these gods are some kind of tribal chiefs or a chest-thumping gorilla leading a pack of simians who will try to tear rival chiefs or threatening alpha-males to pieces. Gods cannot have such low animal emotions as that of feeling jealous of other creators and indulge in violence like us or animals to claim overlordship.

That is why in my scenario, the two gods (designers) studiously avoid each other while their supporters slaughter each other. This is exactly as happens on our little planet. Haven't we the supporters of the various claimants to being the sole the designer of the universe been clashing since civilisation began. Have you seen any evidence of the designers clashing?

>>Nothing like that happened...and we all believe that there is only one entity whom you Call God and we call Allah.<<

Nothing like that happened because gods do not behave like human tribal chiefs. They do not have feelings of anger, jealousy, fear of rivals or superiors. Only humans have that. That is why humans clash and kill each other in the name of these gods.

So if my scenario applies there can be zillions of gods and no clash. And what reason do you have for your claim except for third hand hearsay from the Allah to Gabriel to Muhammad and finally the Koran collected on pieces of stone, leather, bones and unreliable human memory.
