    Default Why is it good that God exists?

    This is continuation from another thread.

    Everybody are asking "Does god exist?" because that is the simplest question. But almost no one ask "What will we get If God exists? Why is that good for us?"

    This does not mean that God does not exists but shows that there is nothing important about it.

    What is actally much harder hit for religion then probability that God maybe doesn't exist.


    Is there any ideas about this?

    I think the answer is obvious:

    If a Christian or Muslim or whatever God does in fact exist... we get to have eternal bliss in the afterlife if we follow said religion correctly.

    That's a lot cooler than simply turning into a hollow compost of a body when we die.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Yep, and the implications of an eternal afterlife are much more terrifying than the closure that death brings.

    Based on my beliefs, this is an easy question. I've mention earlier my whole "The one being reveals himself to all in different aspects to balance the world" belief.. So for me, this question is a bit easier believing what I do. The simple answer is, because the world needs the variety.

    God doesn't exist for all, because God does not reveal himself to all because we need those atheists and their ways of thinking. Just as we need those who are devoted to their teachings and never steer from them, and just as we need those who believe but fail to practice.

    Religion is a HUGE factor in those whom believe and follow it, and it influences those who differ from it. It's a very large root in this world's tree of culture and humanity. For one person to not have God in their lives, there is no problem. For humanity to not have any God at all, the thought process, beliefs, values, etc. of humankind would diminish and chaos would ensue because there would not be enough variety to balance everyone out.

    These are my beliefs, so my answer can only be a personal one.. but I have a feeling anyone else's answers will also be personal.

    Even an afterlife of happiness and bliss? Most people aren't comfortable with just "ending" and ceasing to "be", their ego won't let them.

    That only means that they are short sighted.

    Yup, even an afterlife of happiness and bliss. How would it be any different from Hell? Both are eternal, the only 'difference' is the Emotion/feeling/senses involved, Hell would feel bad, Heaven would feel good, but after maybe a billion 'years' in either, would one really care anymore?

    Most people are only scared of death because its something that we can't possible understand, so we try to relate it with life, an extension of life. We can't imagine non-existence (as a consciousness) because we are a conscious entity, we can try but theres no guaruntee that its going to be accurate, most people just imagine 'blackness', which seems worse than hell to some people.
