    What argument? Arguments are based on evidence, not speculations.

    Simply, God wants us to act like as he wants for its eternal heaven. But we can not see him yet, as he only going to appare at the end of time. May be he is not there yet.

    Of course, it’s just a thought experiment.

    As I said arguments are based on evidence, not speculation. There’s no end to human imagination – one can imagine anything they want. However, in order to make a sound claim one needs to have evidence. Also the more radical the claim, the bigger the evidence that’s required.

    Our belief in God is not based on blind faith. As humans we have been given innate knowledge about our Creator. We also have overwhelming empirical evidence in the nature in the form of organized complexity. If we contemplate only on these two factors, there remains no question about the existence of God. As if this wasn’t enough, God also initiated mankind by His messengers who directly heard from God, saw his angels, and in this manner became direct witnesses to the truth. If we apply our own faculties of reason and rationality upon these facts, we simply can’t escape the conclusion that this universe and everything within is designed by a Grand Designer – God.
