Before man invented God, was there anything?

Was there anything before "time" began?
Before man gazed into a volcano
and imagined "Hell?" Or before a man,
seeing exquisite beauty was moved so
by colors of a sunrise or sunset
that the invention of "Heaven" became
inevitable. Is that what we get
when fantasy must be given a name?

"Imagine there's no heaven," Lennon wrote.
"It's easy if you try." No "Hell" below...
"Above us, only sky." Just a lifeboat
in a troubled sea? A safe place to go
when reality overwhelms? To hide
our fragile, frightened souls when worlds collide?

Love your opening statement. Now we open up the daily news paper and see hell.

We're like fireflies - I wonder if our collective thoughts weave patterns of sunsets and hell before the eyes of god?

Excellent!! What thinking person has not asked The Question. . .and only found more questions?? Some say that the very fact that we ask proves that there is a god. Maybe, maybe not, but the beauty demands a worthy response, and in times of trouble, we need so very much to believe. Thank you for this thought-provoking and well-executed
piece. xOx 'Pea' xOx

I can't imagine a man inventing my God. . .But~ now that you've brought me here, I sit and contemplate what else would I, or could I do? How tragically final!
Nope...I believe this has always been and ALWAYS WILL BE!
Thanks for the tangent though...
Great thought provoker!
Love and Peace~
