    I've been thinking then I thought that I am energy , the earth is energy , the atmosphere is energy , between heavenly bodies there is energy .

    Before God there was no energy and to create energy you need energy so that must mean that God is made of energy and can create energy .

    Do unicorns sweat?

    Are mermaids slippery?

    Energy in all those senses is of physical things, which God as I define the word is not, so I'd say no.

    As far as we know, energy can't be created.

    In temperatures above 83.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Only when wet or slathered in oil.

    How about God is eternal and omnipresent and omniscient. Therefore there is nothing that exists that is not of God. Distinctions like creator and creation, spirit and matter, source and manifestation, energy and matter are only human relative perceptions of the one underlying source of all that exists. God is the One that is All.

    Did you know that zero on a thermometer isn't zero ?

    The thermometer was created within the earths system so can't measure zero because it has entropy , zero on a thermometer is just a constant state that does not measure the energy it is already recieving .

    Everyone is "an energy being". We all run on the conversion of energy from one form into another.

    What's the difference between god and energy?

    Why call it god?

    And how can God be before energy and be energy at the same time?

    That's more confusing than the OP.

    I think when you ask a question like that, you might stop to wonder how you could tell that the response was useful or not. How could the question itself, "Is God an energy being," be answered in such a way that anyone would know if the answer has any meaning?

    Well God has to have some physicality to create physicality . Basic physical principles really .

    If anyone thinks we are from this earth I think they are wrong .

    There is no trace of DNA throughout the layers of the Earth like the Dinosaur period . I also think the Dinosaurs were placed here and I have a feeling that God is going to show God's self soon .
    And God just said my tea is bunring in the oven .

    That would mean energy is eternal, like god?

    Rationally is for those who stereotypically think , I am beyond stereotypical thinking since I was blessed with wisdom . I'll skip answering you unless you seak an answer to something .

    According to my new religion of Christian Maxtrixism, God is the controller of simulations, a reality based virtual world programmer of human consciousness.

    I found a new love in thinking , whatever we think sometimes who we are . To think I am Christian may require me to believe in something when I beleive in nothing . Virtual reality doesn't have solidity , we are real . However nothing is an expansion of my mind and I have to fill it with something , that something can't just magically appear because I don't believe in magic . I've been so lost for so long love , I've loved and lost , I hunt for something more, sometimes think I am ten feet tall, but I swore , to remain me .
    In the search of alternative live I sit ere and think at night , wondering is all this is Gods might , then no, phsyics has a glow , not like God who hides in the fog , unseen .

    Your questions seem rather nonsensical to me, because unicorns and mermaids have never been observed to actually exist anywhere in our universe. Hence, experiments can not be conducted on unicorns in order to determine if they sweat nor could experiments be conducted on mermaids in order to determine the frictional coefficient value of their bodies.

    Do we live in a simulated universe with an underlying grid?

    Some physicists have proposed a method for testing if we are in a numerical simulated cubic space-time lattice Matrix or simulated universe with an underlying grid.
    [1210.1847] Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation

    Based on the assumption that there'd be finite computational resources, a simulated universe would be performed by dividing up the space-time continuum into individually separate and distinctive points. Analogous to mini-simulations that lattice-gauge theorists conduct to construct nuclei based on Quantum Chromodynamics, observable effects of a grid-like space-time have been studied from these computer simulations which use a 3-D grid to model how elementary particles move and collide with each other. Anomalies found in these simulations suggest that if we are in a simulation universe with an underlying grid, then there'd be various amounts of high energy cosmic rays coming at us from each direction; but if space is continuous, then there'd be high energy cosmic rays coming at us equally from every direction.

    Aside from being sentient, supernatural, omnibenevolent, and so on.
