Did God Create Time, Or is God Time? (A Philosophers Dream)




‘In the beginning was the word,’ or, if you are a believer of the big-bang theory, in the beginning was a cosmic explosion from which we all originated.

However, before either of those two occurrences, there was something else in existence.

It was Time. Without there being Time, neither event could have happened. No word could have been written, spoken or thought, and no explosion taken place.

It was Time that introduced the solar system that we know, and it will be Time that will end it.

If you accept this premise then, to use a modern parlance, the rest of my discourse is a given! 

Darwin argues that we evolved from a unicellular organism, an amoeba type creature, into what we are today. I personally disagree with that, but I will not discuss my beliefs here.

Suffice it to say that whether he is correct or Christianity is right, both required the unhindered assistance of Time.

I use the word, unhindered, deliberately, as Time could not care less how we, as humans, use it. Why should it?

What we do with the gift is our choice.

Time is omnipotent, eternal, until it decides to end itself.

If you are about to argue that it will be man who ends the world, I will not disagree, but Time will still exist!

No matter what we do we cannot change it in any way, shape or form. It is yesterday, today and tomorrow. It is perpetual.

The missing energy source that if bottled, would solve every problem ever created. It is not tangible though, but I would suggest that it’s not abstract.

We spend Time watching time pass. 

There are two entities in Time. There is Time in perpetuity, and time the movement, that governs all.

Time creates, as it does destroy. It has power over our very thoughts and purpose. The forever asked question; “is there enough time?” Answered by,“I wish there was!” But there is.

Only it’s not there for us. It is there for Time to use, as it alone decides.

Man invented a clock as a way of measuring and regulating time.

But Time does not recognise that system of quantification, why would it?

It has no need to calculate, as it had no need to begin, and as far as an end product is concerned, why would it have one?

We both love and despises the movement of time. We blame it for passing slowly, or quickly depending on the circumstances, then praise it for the same reasons.

Seldom do we notice Time, the creator. 

 Time is good. Time is bad.  

So, what’s my point in this? I cannot provide you with any clues as to its source, but can you see an analogy here, a comparison with belief?

In the Scriptures, believed by some, God sent his only Son to earth to die for our sins. When God’s son was here he was abused. He still is!

Could Time and God be the same? Could time be Jesus Christ? Could the Bible be an early philosophers dream?

I hope I have sown many questions into your mind. 

It’s a great thing to have time to ask such things, and an equally great thing to be allowed by Time to ponder.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.

    Time is of the essence. The way we choose the clothes, the shoes we wear, the way our clocks move forward, are all metaphors of our existance. The way we choose our present moment realizing that to make the best of what is will ultimately transform who we are. The choice of making it the best regardless of the circumstances, determines our best self. My admiration for your work as always. Inspired, thank you for posting.

    The clock moves forward. Time will always pass. We choose our present to shape our future. The choice of living a positive life and overcoming is a gift. The ability to share is a blessing.

    LIVE life is a gift, LAUGH we have this moment and one life, with LOVE all things are possible, MOTIVATE for a positive balanced life, INSPIRE with your story.

    Questions beget questions; some masquerade as answers. Provocative and well written. Allow me to contemplate. While time permits.
