Discovery is finding things that exist.
Invention is using things discovered.

Create that path and engineer a metamorphosis.

If God is infinite, then the question ceases to make any sense. If one were to ask : "what is a cake "made of"? ... one is effectively asking "What pre-existing elements combined to result in the cake?" Since nothing can "preexist" an infinite God then what is God made of becomes nonsense question.

What kind of body does God have ? The bible* indicates God has a spirit body. What are the elements of a "spirit body"? I don't know.

If.

If the Christian could show they speak truth, we wouldn't hafta keep asking em to try to show they can make em any sense.

God's made of eggs and flour, and the pretty thing hasta beat em both together, and had to stuff God there in the oven, and I can't have me none bit of God unless I eat me them nasty little green peas?

I challenge you to show you speak truth regarding the following...

Now before you get all discombobulated, I ain't asking you to "show God", as I've come to learn that upsets you to high heaven, cause ya can't, but what I ask is...

I challenge you to show you speak truth regarding....

"An infinite God"

Beats me, but if you said a '49 Mercury, I wouldn't fuss a bit.
JehovahsWitness wrote: The bible* indicates God has a spirit body.
Your comments indicate you can't put you the first bit of truth to that claim.

Your not knowing is the one thing about ya, I won't challenge.

Are you asking me to prove that the bible indicates that God has a spirit body?

We gave you the benefit of the doubt by assuming you were at least trying to.

Why should *I* be challenged to defend your assumptions?

The assumption that you're telling the truth? Is this another one of those "just asking questions" things that went wrong, but you keep driving it into the ground anyway? Or are you actually and intentionally implying that we shouldn't presume that you're honest?
My preferred pronouns are he, him, and his.

Oh, wait that's what little girls are made of. God is made of much less than that:

"Imagination and myth
And everything... oh, you know, whatever rhymes with myth."
