..Since you can't even imagine being wrong?

How So? Who stated that one can not be wrong in some things? One may be wrong in most other things but this one as explained:

I also believe I had covered this topic before: But for the record, here it is once more:

There are only three ways of how life came to be:

a. life either is created, or made, or caused by nothing at all (i.e. it came out of nothing. or
b. life is the creator of itself. or
c. life has a creator, cause, or maker, outside itself.

the third (c.) will not be argued against because it is understood because the explanation is addressed to people who deny the existance of acreator and is telling them that only two possibilities remain. detailed explanation of the first two is not nessesarily needed here too because the position of (a.)& (b.) are untenable.
clarity of expression often convinces people of the truth or untruth of a statemnt. mentle seeing here, more than phisical seeing, is beliving (or rejecting).

it is inconcevable for somthing to come out of or be made by nothing at all, and it is even more inconcevable that it should bring itself into being.Hence the only conclusion is that it must have a creator outside itself. A thesis is therefor untenable if it means the denial of any maker or cause whatsoever. But admiting that this is indeed so, one might still wonder why should that cause or maker or creator be the God to whom the prophets were inviting people? Why shouldn`t it be one of the many other gods in whome people belive or why shouldn`t it even be the "matter" of the materirialists? In a nutshell the answer is as follows: to explain the coming into being of temporal thing, the creator (or cause or maker) for which we are looking, must (logicaly must) have the atribute of the God to whom the prophets invite us. How So?

The creator must be of a different nature from the things created because, if he is of the same nature as they are, he will have to be temporal and therefor need a maker. it follows that "nothing is likehim." if the maker is not temporal then he must be eternal. but if he is eternal, he can not be caused, and if nothing causes him to come in to existence, nothing causes him to continue to exist, which means that he must be self sufficient. and if he dose not depend on anything for continuance of his existance, then that existence can haveno end. the creator is therefor eternal and everlasting: "he is the first and the last."

Best Regards
