"How do you know that the subtleness of the sentient being is not making it impossible for you to feel the force at this time?"

It may be. But there is no evidence for such a belief. So to believe in such a thing now is to jump to conclusions and to base your beliefs on fickle feelings.

"A door is constructed (made) out of material. So a cell has to be constructed out of material. How do you explain where the material to form a cell came from?"

We don't know. That's the point. But the way to go about it is to look at it from a scientific perspective: investigation and deduction. Any other conclusion is based on poor foundations.

"I am inquiring so the theory is impractical for me when it is unable to explain the force that is required to bring in to being the elements that make up a single cell. How can the theory that you mention not require knowing when I am sentient and wish to know what is to become of me."

But Jisbond, all religion provides is the ILLUSION of knowledge. What answers, VERIFIABLE answers has it provided? We just need to accept that we currently don't know some things and resolve to find out. Not to cling to outdated beliefs.


"It matters to me. I am more important that a theory."

It matters to me, too. That's why I go with the method most likely to come to an accurate answer.
