    Default The Race of Gods

    Let's say there is a race of Gods, and that they are beyond human
    knowledge and understanding, but they do have the abilities to
    affect humans when and if they want to.

    Do you think these Gods learn from the humans?

    Do you think they enjoy interacting with the humans?

    How do they feel when humans die or are in terrible suffering?

    If there were such Gods (read Gods as both genders and possibly
    some of them as being both genders in one) where do you think they
    would reside?

    Do any of you think or feel that such as these (or Angels) have affected
    your lives? Do they appear to you sometimes?

    I knew this thread was started by an INFP just from the title lol.

    Do you think these Gods learn from the humans?
    I don't believe in god but hypothetically I would HOPE they learnt some things from us.


    Do you think they enjoy interacting with the humans?
    I would hope they did.


    How do they feel when humans die or are in terrible suffering?
    I would hope that they care.


    If there were such Gods (read Gods as both genders and possibly
    some of them as being both genders in one) where do you think they
    would reside?
    Hypothetically on some other plane of existance, somewhere that when I finally joined with them, I would behold wonders that this plane of existance never offered.


    Do any of you think or feel that such as these (or Angels) have affected
    your lives? Do they appear to you sometimes?
    No, but in my fantasy world I am special enough to warrant some interaction.

    It's all hope really, I honestly couldn't ascribe a set method of behaviour for a hypothetical god/gods.

    Some say the race of gods is imaginary, but I say they are metaphoric.

    The problem is that no on knows what a metaphor is.

    And so quite naturally no one knows what a god is.

    And so without a second thought, we bat at each other in the dark.

    First thought... if they are beyond human understanding... why will any of your questions matter? Clearly we have no way of validating our guesses... or perhaps we're completely off the mark... As victor said, shooting at each other in the dark.

    your lives? Do they appear to you sometimes?
    Perhaps? I have no clue. When are coincidences not coincidence?

    If they have something to learn from humans then they are not be Gods.
    (at least not by standard definition of the word God)

    Statistics can tell us with precision.
