TIME, SPACE, BELIEF, PEOPLE, AND A DOSE OF GOD

Weird title that I've got up there. Where did that come from. Now you see, I have the unbelievable thought process that makes me awe at myself. It's like a galaxy of thought in there. And I ask myself and people who care to listen the weirdest question in the history of weird questions (seriously). Some of these questions I believe goes beyond me, and am not the only one in that domain of thought.

I was with my friends yesterday after work (that place!) and we decided to chill and have a drink somewhere right opposite the estate where my office is located. In the spirit of the moment, we started talking about everything, and from nowhere we jumped into GOD. Yes, GOD (We started with the story of the Jewish people and how they are highly favoured. And then proceed to discussing war in the Middle-East and the whole che-bang... then Aliens and if they exist or not, and how the certain discoveries are hidden from the public, and then the Judas Scroll that has just been released(?) or Found(?) - and then GOD)

Three of my collegues stated their belief in the bible and the Christian definition of GOD. But I stated otherwise, saying that inspite of all the sweetness that has been attached to GOD and all the mystery that has been woven into GOD, we are missing on point... How come if we are all talking about one GOD, but have different interpretation. My questions - very innocent and with no prejudice but for want for answers stripped of any particular belief - are:

1. How come we have different versions of God?
2. How come the idea of a never changing God keeps changing?
3. Whose version of God is right?
4. Does he interfer in our affairs?
5. If so, does he choose who does what and who doesn't?
6. Is free-will really free-will? (since we can only choose from options that are available to us)
7. Can anyone ever figure God out?
8. If no, how come someone always thinks their own version of God is better than others'?
9. If Yes, then he's not a mystery anymore that the guy next to me?
10. Do we confuse our emotional spasm or intuitive awareness as a sign from God?
11. Why do we keep fighting for who has the best Imaginary Being?
12. Does God care?
13. And if yes, on whose side does he stand?
14. Wont that be partiality if he gets invovled by supporting one side?
15. Can man wrestle with God?
16. Can a created wrestle with the Creator?
17. What is right and what is wrong?
18. By what standard?
19. Who made these standards?
20. What if we are all wrong?
21. What if we are part of someone's vision (of supposed reality) and really don't exist?

I have asked 21 questions, and they are all about us (sorry 50... I actually asked 21 questions about what concerns everyone)

Please share you thoughts with me

1. How come we have different versions of God?

2. How come the idea of a never changing God keeps changing?
__Because of the same reason I told ya in question number 1
3. Whose version of God is right?
__The who created us and is kind and forgiving who does justice and is never unfair.
4. Does he interfere in our affairs?
__ Our affairs no
5. If so, does he choose who does what and who doesn't?
__ no He lets us decide and choose the way we live. No force .. u may drink ur cup or my throw it out. The energy to do things comes from Him
6. Is free-will really free-will? (Since we can only choose from options that are available to us)
__In some part yes and some parts destiny plays the rule ..
7. Can anyone ever figure God out?
__ NO .. NEVER
8. If no, how come someone always thinks their own version of God is better than others'?
__ The versions are religions and they are different. The truth is one and never differs 
9. If Yes, then he's not a mystery anymore that the guy next to me?
__ I already answered this ..the answer is No ..
10. Do we confuse our emotional spasm or intuitive awareness as a sign from God?
__A sign from God .. well I think if there ever realy happens something like that to us we wouldn’t mistake it for something else.. Opps
11. Why do we keep fighting for who has the best Imaginary Being?
__I donno!
12. Does God care?
__ Yes if not He wouldn’t create you and me and others
13. And if yes, on whose side does he stand?
__ Standing where He is that’s no place you can point out since He is everywhere ..he loves those who love Him, 4example: sunshine shines on those who peer out their windows and those who hide in dark are losers.
14. Wont that be partiality if he gets involved by supporting one side? Yes exactly .. he has no tendencies , no reletives . no cousines ..LOL .. He is being fair to all

17. What is right and what is wrong?
__Right is things He likes u to do and wrong is things He forbids u cuz of ur own well being .. wot u do and wot I do absolutely don’t effect him .. our doings either good or wrong effect our own beings and He has given us common sense to distinguish between good or wrong. Tell me wot is it when u do kindness to ur mom ..am sure u know its good or wrong.
18. By what standard?
Standard is religion …
