I just can't understand how theists can accept that an all-knowing, all-powerful, complex god exists for the sake of existing?

Yet are dumbfounded by the idea that energy and matter, which can exist in very simple states, has always existed. One thing is true, we exist now.

How the heck is an all-powerful, all-knowing, complex god the more likely thing??? I mean, are you really thinking about the gravity of this tall order is?? For absolutely no reason at all, a sentient being exists EVERYWHERE up to infinity!! And always has, since infinity!!

It's ludicrous! How can anyone believe this??
