So I save a kid that's drowning.
His family is like "thank God!"
Am I God?
Did I create the world?
I am just a person who wants someone in need to be safe.
Of course we need. Human need soul satisfaction or goals who define their own path as long as they life in the earth. and this, conception of God, will help human reach the point of happiness, and also the clearer path on their life.
Well that depnds how you define god. As far as luck, of course i believe we can beat mathematical odds. Thats evident.
Anyone who comes for your rescue when in trouble is equivalent to god.
Its nothing supernatural do u belive in luck?
I don't think creating another God is a good replacement for God. -_-
Labeling someone as god and believing in the supernatural are completely different.
If someone helps you and your community during rough times u see them as god and these so called gods manipulate the people for their benefits
So how do u think god men or women are formed
Right. But that need to believe in something doesnt have to be supernatural
Like i said during period of despair people need a something to belive in
Though my opinion is we didnt need a god, i dont blame our ancestors for believing in one. Especially once the idea was initiated and believed worldwide, it was difficult to think otherwise without an alternative explanation. But whats making religion last is not our need to understand, but rather the fear of the consequences for not believing. Not only fear of afterlife, but most then and still some today have severe consequences for not believing including death. I believe without the dogma, we would have admitted to ourselves that there are things we just dont know long ago. I understand we do have a need to understand our nature, but that need could have been put into finding out the answers versus assuming we already knew out of fear.
We need someone or something to keeps our hopes alive when nothing works out
God is no longer a necessity, but it is still a valid option.
that animals don't have religion isn't really useful. they don't have a complicated understanding of the world. humans need to feel like they understand the world. without a scientific understanding they had to come up with another explanation for the reason the world was what it was. for that reason I don't see how religion is possible to have avoided. but now that we understand much more of the world this is no longer true.
I don't understand, every other species made it. we are the only species that made it, on any scale larger than an insect.
Just because the idea of God is in our history, doesnt mean this idea was needed for human development. Literally every other species has made this far without the idea of God. Humans are the most intelligent species. Im sure we still would have devolped just fine with a secular history.
we did. God brought order. he was law when law was weak, or nonexistent. he civilized many of us at the earliest times.
We never did.
