Humans have always had deities. Whether it was male or female, they've been present throughout history.. Native Americans believe the Raven and Coyote are messengers, in other cultures they believe in Lillith, Isis, Baal, Hathor . . .Hindus have hundreds of goods and goddesses. Some people worship the earth or the sun.
So, of God was real, sitting up there with a big white beard in heaven, throwing his mis-behaving angelic creations into a place called hell for all eternity, why wasn't he written about and known of before a few thousand years ago? Civilization is much older than the old testament.
I believe that the human race created this 'god' to make old people okay with dying (you'll go to heaven) and so that we accepted it and now we have the obsessive people about a weird story. I don't believe there is.
the question can't be answered...noone really knows..but I'll tell you that faith is very real..so many people believe in so many different things..all we as humans can do is hope and enjoy life to its fullest. and Ye do what Ye want but harm noone...blessed be
I think that what ever a person believes is real is their reality. I personally believe that man created god and god has served man well. The myth of god has generated more cash than you could ever imagine, started more wars and caused more death than any other reason. Unfortunately, no one can really know until it's too late but I feel like if there was really a god that he would show us mere mortals in a more convincing way that he exists. I'm just not going to hand my heart and soul over to something that has never been seen, touched,or heard. Blind faith.
