Why Would A
Creator Be Anxious
To Reveal Itself?
In respect to the subject of truth. I feel that the parable of the Angel quoted in one of Albert Einstein's books is a good way of looking at "truth." I think if one operates their perspective from a position of love, tempered with wisdom, then this becomes the key to unlocking the "truth" in all things.
If the Universe is 12-15 billion years old as is theorized, why would a creator of this be anxious in revealing themselves (him/herself?) to us in our lifetime or any time in the next few billion years? Would our present consciousness and perceptions be able to handle such a revelation?

I'm not sure I understand how "love" (whatever that
is) affects or influences "truth" (accurate information).
why would a creator of this be anxious in revealing themselves
More basic still, is there or is there not a creator?
If you say there is a creator (who simply has not revealed itself), how do you know your information is accurate (since no creator has revealed itself)?
If you do not know (or, as is the case with your presentation, if we cannot know), then you are an atheist just like me, in that you lack a god belief.
Furthermore, is there any (accurate) information that requires us (or even prompts us) to posit the existence of a creator? I have not encountered any "gaps" that require that we posit any creator; thus, I don't believe.
