Men make gods, not the other way around, this accounts for the large number of different gods in different ages and cultures.

If you can't explain something, invent a god who made it. Don't like the idea of dying? Invent an afterlife.

Inventing a deity solves SO many problems.

It depends on who you ask. To many people, God is a figment of the imagination with a book that is as meaningless as the Twilight series. To others, such as myself, God is the one true God that is alive to this very day. He created the universe and everything in it. God's book, the Bible, is the foundation for everything we believe. Best of luck my friend!

I have no idea. I don't know for sure if there is a god or not. I don't believe in one. For all I know, there might have been a great celestial being who was dying out because he was the last of his kind and he decided to use that up by turning the rest of his life force into this universe. I don't know.

Who is God?? - What name do you give that which has created? God? If so, then man is God. Man created the many aspects regarding the concept of God/Gods. In early writings and etchings, it was the concept of God/Gods that man brought into this world to answer questions unanswerable at the time.

Is God real?? - What is Real? What is perceived to be based on our worldview of reality? If so, would Santa Claus be real to a 4 year old whom was indoctrinated to believe so? The idea of free presents given by an Omnipresent man made from his magical elves, is enough for any simple minded child to create many confirmation biases to keep the illusion alive. Is it any wonder why the scriptures call for believers to be "Child like in their faith"?

Figment of imagination?

Not an accurate description. Unless you can attach "feelings" to that figment . . .
Since it indoctrinated from youth I would say it is more likely an inherited "State of Mind", but not inherited as the sharing or genetic code or mutations, but one of Cultural pressures. through indoctrinated experiences.

Just want to add this. My nephew before he turned 1 year old always referred to his mother by saying ma or maam!! Baby speech. Of course he can't talk yet. My question is, how did he know that's his mom ? No one ever told him and for sure no one ever called his mother that.

I agree with some of the things you mentioned above. To Kay, no one says that around him apart from his nanny maybe. But I get what your saying as someone can easily mention mama around him when his mom takes him outside. Though it still a surprise that babies can recognize their parents by sound and scent.
Thanks for the information and taking time to comment. As for I believe God exists. This will be true until people can stop death/dying.

Babies can learn the tone of voices and types of voices from within the womb . . . Anyone who bonds with a child after it is born knows your scent is also something both learned from the closeness of the bonding and pheromonal identifying.
Most animals can tell both offspring and parent from scent, which is just one more aspect of evolution.
Why in the world would making someone "Immortal" change your views? - "As for I believe God exists. This will be true until people can stop death/dying. "

It depends on you, if you believe , then it 's real, it's on our mind, but I have an advice, in our life, it's better to have a believing, it can make us be confident to do somethings.

I believe in something or else they'd be nothing. Goodness and mind none of which can be seen or measured, love cannot be measured either.

 If I watch TV it tends to be along the lines of David Attenborough, humans living in diverse settings or history. What have I learned? That mankind is unnatural in its way, and destructive, we wasn't always so. That tribes live long lives without western medicine, for they have lived in harmony with the spirit of nature. It hasn't been western society teaching tribal culture how to cure but the other way round. Much of our sickness is due to living in close proximity and the state of our food source.  

As for religious texts many point to Sumer the first civilisation whether they have created many gods or used all those god traits in one. Why did we settle and create elaborate buildings and sewage systems? Domesticate cattle and wild grass, create a banking system? All that has ended us here. Wherever we are so is concrete, toxins and poverty. Why would nomad tribes who lived in harmony with the land for thousands of years, choose to settle when common sense told them that creating a surplus food supply makes it vulnerable to control? Whoever controls the food source controls everyone. People talk about religious ideas brainwashing man, many ideas brainwash man besides religion. If they didn't we certainly wouldn't be working at least 40 hours a week, or being fined for rules we did not make. Common law says you "must not harm your neighbour." Yet here we are bogged down with statutes and contract law of which none follow that common law, they are there to make our corporations money and everything is a corporation a legal entity.  Still they have enslaved and examined human interaction for years.

 Bill Gates is for vaccination to control the population. Their intent has always been create conflict through polarity, create the solution once society has had enough and has no where else to turn. Then society remains loyal to their masters. Put Christian up against Muslim, Atheist up against Theist and Republican up against Democrat. The result is the same totalitarianism masked as choice.

We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil.Then everywhere, the people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered and exterminated at the same time.

This is what happened, I answered the question. You come onto my answer and say "This is all one giant ramble of nonsense" when your own answer to this persons question was this...

"There is no good evidence any gods exist.  Whether you believe in any is something only YOU can determine for yourself- no one here can tell you what to believe."

Ironically you then jump on everyone's thread telling them they are wrong and what they are saying is nonsense. You repeatedly do this on many questions.

Let me answer your questions in reverse.

Is God real?---my answer is "yes", I think so"---and I think that for numerous reasons.

Many will say "no" also for numerous reasons.

Either they are right or I am right---God's existence is not contingent upon what any human thinks or believes about His existence.

Who is God?    Well, any God worthy of the name would be at least as good as the best person I know, would be all powerful, and would have every good quality I could ever imagine. (Of course, you could think he is cruel and uncaring---but who would want such a God?)

If you want to find Him, you can; and He will reveal Himself to you.

Of course, many people with disagree with me, so maybe the best thing to do is to seek Him by yourself.

God or gods are real.  What they want, who knows?  Religions speculate a lot on the subject.  I believe in the Jewish/Christian/Islamic god.  That does not make me right, I just real it does.  The existence of a god is incontestable. 

St Thomas Aquinas in his 5 proofs of god described it well, either the universe has always existed, came from something else, or was created.  If you accept the first, fine.  If you accept the second, it just pushes the question backwards and is essentially a version of the first, so fine.  If you accept the third you are accepting the existence of a god.  The same arguments to be assigned to where god came from only all three point to a god so for that it is cyclic logic and therefore invalid.

The reason I consider Aquinas's arguments as valid is not where the world/universe came from but rather where did life come from.  I wrote a response discussing life elsewhere on blurt it (philosophy-religion.blurtit.com/4411070/why-do-people-believ).

The steady state theory of the universe, that is to say the theory the universe has always existed has been universally abandoned by all scientific theories. This means life could not have always existed.  Even if you accept the universe came from something else and can be pushed back infinity in time such that the matter/energy that makes up the universe has always existed, with the universe coming into existence especially as described by the Big Bang theory, life did not exist at that moment.  Therefore life came about within the universe.  As described in  my referenced article, life is not unlikely even given the trillions or more of astronomical bodies, it is not improbable, it is not near impossible, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to occur naturally.  It required a deliberate act.

Please note that the article does not even begin to indicate the actual odds against life.  There are literally hundreds of major biochemical systems within even the simplest of living organisms.  The computations were for just one part of one system.  And as I said randomly it might be possible for any single DNA strand or RNA strand or polypeptide or any lipid or other component to be created by natural means but for all the components to be created all in the same place and at the same time in the exact ratios needed and to be enclosed and segregated such that the biochemical chain of reactions we call life could take place is impossible.

Oh and I have read the theories that life started as a short chain retro virus.  Possibly.  But a retro virus can not reproduce.  It does not have any metabolic pathways.  It depends solely upon the pathways of what ever LIVING cell it enters. That requires some other complete system.  Maybe the retro virus did come first, but it was not alive (depending on your definition of living, it is not alive as it cannot reproduce) until the living cell was subsequently appeared.  Under natural circumstances a single retro virus without any form of host will eventually be broken down.

There is a god or gods.  They may or may not care about us.  They may or may not even know we exist, life itself may be some unnoticed side affect of something they did eons ago.  If life on the earth is deliberate, we may actually be nothing more than a petri dish for making a vaccine or biological weapon.  As to whether any god desires worship, we cannot really know only think and/or believe.  As to whether any god has established rules for our lives, the same. 

I choose to believe that a least one god "created" us deliberately and that it cares what happens to us.  How you choose to view the gods is your choice, but I consider you are probably ignorant of biology and biochemistry if you consider life as occurring completely naturally.

Depends on the answer to the following question.

"How old are you?"

If you are under a certain age, with religious parents who fearfully indoctrinate the only people gullible enough to accept the nonsense they peddle in a desperate attempt to ensure the next generation keeps making the same mistakes? I'm not going to tell you the truth. Go ahead and keep believing in a daddy god. Sweetie.

If you are over a certain, age, then you need to get over it. There is no god.

How do you really know that God is real? How do you know somebody
didn't just make Him up so we'd all feel better, and then passed that
information down to us? What if we made up God to feel less alone?"

These
are really good questions and we have answers for them. But questions
like these strike fear into the hearts of most parents, so we react with
the holy sounding dodge: "Um, well, we just have to believe. The Bible
says blessed are those who have not seen and yet still believe."

Have u ever felt something so strongly...no one could talk u out of it? That u just know?

That is how I feel and how I know God is real.

It happened while I was reading the Bible, maybe a few months ago, I just felt something inside me. Its hard to explain what it was but from that day on...I just knew.
