Here's my answer:

We know that there are human beings, right? No doubt about it! We also know that many humans habitually invent myths, hear voices (look at the president!), hallucinate and talk with imaginary friends. (Again, look at the president.)

We do not KNOW there is a god. There are many god believers, but that is a statement about humanity, not about a god.

Religion arose to deal with death, weaknesses, dreams, and fear of the unknown, as well as for a certain small group (the clergy) to hold power over those less learned. The power of authority and fear have long been enlisted to hold sway over the masses when it comes to what the masses perceive as their immortal souls.

Their souls become more important to them than the lives they're leading within the real world. :roll:

Also , anything that exists has to have had a designer. Thus, if there is a god, who designed this being and who designed the designer? All the way through infinity. Eventually, one has to decide to either believe or not to believe.

Only you will know the right choice for you, ECSMOKELOC.

If there were no humanity, would there be god?

Before you answer...

Who created god?

Who created GOD? The age old question that makes you cross eyed trying to figure it out. I believe we will remember what "GOD" is when we change energy, or as some folks like to say, "become maggot food". I believe that when our bodies die, our souls return to their place of origin. Once while I was smoking the leaves of the Salvia Divinorum plant I had a moment of clarity. I actually became a different sort of energy and left my body. In this state I felt that I was given answers to questions of this sort. Eventually my ex-wife nudged me in her sleep and I was sucked back into reality as quickly as I left it. I remember very little of what I was "told". The closest I've ever been to finding answers to questions like these are when im experimenting with ancient entheogens or sacred plants.

Precisely the purpose of my question. :D

It's like meditating on infinity.

There are billions of people, each and every one has a personal concept of what god is and isn't.

Precisely!

And the odd thing about infinity is that no matter how hard one tries to picture it, it is impossible. Space may be endless, but our minds have boxes around them so we can't really imagine that endlessness.

Isn't that a hoot!
