Not the most difficult I can think of(because that one truly is impossible to answer)

But here goes

How do we 'explain' everything in a way we can understand?

How do we solve a causality paradox? If every event has a cause and requires a cause to exist, how do we escape the paradox of an infinite regress?

Though you are red so not expecting a great answer

is there a god, or is it just some sort of idea, that helps us sleep at night, or make us feel better about ourselves.

obviously you cannot prove that god exists,..... but also you cannot prove that he does not exist (without a shadow of doubt)

so I ask you Mulder.......... do you believe?

so to answer your question..... about tree-fiddy!

If i understand you correctly, the causality paradox is when you go back in time, and change the events so that you are not born etc.

but i think you are talking more about cause and effect, where each cause has it's effect, and that effect then becomes a cause, in an infinite chain of cause and effects. The problem is that if causality is comes to an end, say there is and effect which is not a cause, then that means technically it is the end of existence, and if there is a effect that just pops up out of nowhere, with no cause, then that would be the beginining of existence right.

since this is infinite, that means there is no god (or initial cause), who created, or there was no creation to begin with, as what was the cause of god (in b4 god does whatever he likes). I think the "paradox" can be summed up with the cyclic universe theory where, the universe expands and collapses in a cyclic order, that way the cause and effect will be infinite, and the universe will be infinite aswell

Well that just opens up another door.

If you want to accept the universe as cyclic, you are stuck with some perptual existence, ultimately complete and contained in itself, completely self supporting and imprisoned in some ratmaze of pointless circularities and inescapable necessities.

I dont like solving paradoxes with other paradoxes.

thats not a paradox, thats an assumption that you are living in a ratmaze of pointless circularities, how do you know that in this cyclic universe you will be born again, to live the same life you have now. I propose a not so predeterministic solution, where each cause and effect is not predetermined, so in another cycle of the universe you may not even exist, because earth was not created, but then the paradox arises, if there is "free-will" that these events take place then how can you have a cyclic universe. My theory is that, there must be some sort of law that governs the universe itself, therefore a multiverse theory, and this universe has a law that governed to be in cyclic order.

btw this is quite a difficult concept, so obviously paradoxes will not always be solved, people come up with ideas of how they can be solved, doesnt necessarily have to be correct. i.e who knows what happened, for all we know maybe there is a guy with a grey beard sitting up their in clouds behind it all (highly unlikely though lol)

at first there was neither existence nor non-existence, there was no death or immortality, at first there was only darkness, then creation came, who knows how it came..... even god/gods came after this creation (from our minds) so who knows how it came about.... does god know.... or maybe he doesnt even know when creation happend

If you believe in the absurdity known as the god of Abraham, why did he do it? Why did he create all of this/us? I'll hang up and wait for my reply.

i dont believe in the god of abraham, seems like a very weird thing to do, offer your son as a sacrifice to show your faith and devotion.

The whole point of the story is not to question god, and show obedience, your question is questioning gods motives.....sacrilege lol

all I will say is, poor ram
