I would feel like life has no meaning...knowing that God exists someone makes my life meaningful and important.

To be honest, I've been under an assumption that God does exist, but in truth, He might be a grey alien. If this turns out to be the truth, I might freak out, because I'll believe that everything I thought I knew was a lie.

I'm gonna play the technicality card for this a bit, since it's a rather loaded question.

Usually when people capitalize the word god, they refer to the Judeo-Christian image of one almighty deity.

If you are actually proposing a situation in which this being has been proven not to exist, then what of the other well known interpretations of deities found in other religions?

At that point, there would be many more questions left to answer, wouldn't you agree?

This might already be the case, so nothing would change. Also, it's impossible to provide evidence for the absence of something that never had any evidence of it's existence in the first place.

-- Your world view is kinda screwed up if you think the threat of eternal punishment or the promise of eternal reward are the only reasons you care about other people; empathy and charity are actually present throughout the animal kingdom (especially among apes), if you'd bother to actually do some research.

Drew,
Unlike you, not everyone needs the motivation of eternal life and punishment to be a morally functional person,
when I do something 'good' its because I want to be kind, helpful and to contribute positively to the world.


Maybe I am morally bankrupt. Note that I wasn't just talking about the afterlife though. I also meant that if there was no jail. If you could get away with lying and cheating and stealing and stuff without fear of being punished, would you do it? To be perfectly honest, I know I would.

Oh come on, not this argument again. I'm so sick of it. If the only reason you are a "good" person (I actually don't believe in good or bad but that's another topic)-not hurting or killing anyone, cheating or lying- is that you are afraid of beeing punished then you have a psychological problem. It has nothing to do with god.

Then what's the explanation for the inability to prove god? lmeo

Nice rhetoric, though.

I don't understand the question. In the rest of that post, I explained how you can only prove things if objectivity exists - universal truth, universal laws of nature, that sort of thing. Otherwise, everything is subjective. My experience of reality could be different. The only way for universality - and anything in general - to exist is for there to be a Creator.

Well obviously you don't understand the question because all you managed to do was rewrite what you did in your original post without even acknowledging the question.

I won't explain it as it is pretty common sense and a relatively short and comprehensible valid question.

It is a moot question because God does exist.

Do you write off all hypothetical questions as moot, or do you just not care for philosophical debate?
