  • If I have tangible proof of god, I will believe in him. However, I have never said that I would worship him. If certain gods were proven to be real, I would have no issue worshiping them. For instance, if it was proven that the flying spaghetti monster was real, then sure I'd worship him, because he is so gosh-darn awesome. However, I think that if one of the more hateful gods was proven to be real, I would not worship him/her/them. There is no way I would side myself with a god who is cruel and intolerant.
  • I don't know if I'd worship him/her/it/them or not. It may depend on what I saw in the said god(s) that I thought worthy of worship.
  • I would not necessarily worship him if he appeared to me. In fact, I might not necessarily believe what I was seeing was real. I hallucinate sometimes, so that might be the explanation. Of course, I don't want proof of God, because there isn't any, so it would be a waste of time for me to ask anyway.
  • I would think that Atheists would say that the first question asserts that God exists. However they assert that he does not. If they agreed with your first question then they would not be Atheists. We have a contradiction. In my view proving God is futile, as the mind will already have determined whether He exists or not and then find all the proof it needs to prove itself. If you tell yourself you are scepticle, then you will still remain scepticle after you've seen the evidence. If you tell yourself "I am prepared to believe in God and find evidence" you will do so. If you tell yourself "I do not believe in God, but I will keep looking for evidence", then your belief system will override any form of counter evidence to it. If you believe that someone is a bad person, but they do something good you will either discount it or knock it or ignore it or think "I'm still right, they are bad". Look at the trouble Galileo had convincing the Establishment that the earth revolved around the sun! However talking about and knowing God is just wonderful. He reveals Himself so much, and His most important revelation being when He died on the cross and rose from the dead, and I thank Him for leaving us His Word to read thousands of years on. If one seeks the truth, with the whole intention of looking for it, and with no other contradcitory belief system, you will find it.
  • I would not worship him I don't understand why I should or why he would want people to I don't worship my mom worship to me seems slightly barbaric I would respect him, give him the props, and would love to learn from him but what good does the act of worship do? Worshiping slaves is what avaricious king asks for, not a higher thinking loving father who only wants the best for the children he created.
  • You show us this god and we'll think about it.
  • Believe? Perhaps. I've been to a few magic shows, and I know my eyes can be fooled without too much work. Worship? Absolutely not. If god exists, I have a bone to pick with him, the first being my inclusion in a life not of my choosing. If you think about it, god makes us, and then he demands we worship him. Sounds pretty shitty to me. It's a lot like praise slavery. Enslaved to god's apparent ego.
  • From your view how would you know you're seeing him? Worship is based on faith, the evidence of believing in things unseen. There is only an argument if you don't have or experience faith. Your question is ridiculous. When and If HE, God, calls on you, address your argument then. For a preview look up Saul of Tarsus in history.
  • As you know I am not an Atheists but as a person who knows many I will tell you that if God himself parted the skies and came down from Heaven to introduce himself they would still not believe. Intellectual atheists do not believe in the possibility of God so anything saying he is must be a fraud.
  • No, I wouldn't. I would believe in him, assuming I have ways to verify that I'm not hallucinating. (A few other skeptical observers should do the trick.) At this point, with the information I have, I see no reason to worship such an entity should it exist.
  • But this 'God' that everyone talks about would never do that (how convienient) He wouldn't show himself to anyone. It's so funny how religion relies of FAITH and that you don't need to see or have proof to believe. It's so typical of mankind to come up with these ideas so they can't be proven wrong. I wouldn't worship God anyway, I have absolutely no reason to. People say they love God more than anyone else. I think that's really sad to love more than anything a BELIEF. All God is, is the word people use to describe: -The hope that they feel -Science they can't explain -Feeling of power they have when they think they are God's 'special' creatures -When they need something to believe in to keep them going because no-one else cares -Lonliness -The thought that we can't be the most complicated form of life because if we are the best then the universe is not as great as it should be
  • How would we know it was God ? what does he look like ? and what does worship mean to you ? I see that term as ambiguous.
  • To worship is wrong. The idea of worship is wrong. If there were a god and he showed himself to me I would never worship him, I would look him square in the eye in defiance and say why are you such an evil doer.
  • If I saw God, I would tell that worthless shit to stop encouraging people to rebel against their own natural human nature. I would call him a liar for writing checks he cant cash (or refuses to at least). I would tell him to hurry up and take his followers with him so the rest of the human race can live in harmony here on Earth without being bothered with worthless lying scriptures. I would tell him to take the Muslims and those who practice Judaism with him. We don't need them and we don't want them. Diversity is cool but come on, how much bull shit do reasonable human beings have to put up with? I would not worship that trash known as God, even if he was proven real. Plenty of scriptures show that such a being is not worth respecting.
  • Why do you care? Why are you asking this question? If God decided to appear to an atheist would you be jealous? If I saw God I think I would regard it as a deeply personal experience. I am fairly sure that God doesn't need human cheer leaders, talking heads, priests, pundits or anyone else to tell us what God thinks. I am also sure God doesn't need press agents. Why don't all these people who are constantly talking about God STFU and act as kind, generous, loving examples instead of condemning others, lusting after worldly goods and thumping others with their beliefs?
  • That would depend on what God it was I saw, if it wanted worship, and if I thought it worthy of worship. I have always been dubious of the concept of worship - why does an omnipotent God *want* worship - it sounds a bit narcissistic to me. Given the bungled mess that the world actually is, it might well be that God messed up making the world, and wants worship as reassurance that it isn't *that* bad - which is not deserved. Or maybe God made the world a while back and hasn't done anything since -in which cased, why worship? Or maybe God is evil, and made the world in order to enjoy our sufferings - no worship for that one. Or maybe God is so different from us - being omnipotent, immortal, immaterial etc, that the concept of worship is not meaningful to it.
  • Assuming his identity was irrefutably proven - not just some lunatic in the pub claiming to be god. I would have to admit his existence and that the proof had finally been forthcoming. However, there are so many gods to choose from and just because one of them condescends to show themself does not make the worshipping material. I would want a rational conversation with this god and would expect him/her to be able to answer my questions and prove themselves worthy of my following before I would ever consider worship. If all they were capable of is quoting bible passages and scriptures I would treat them with the same contempt that I do all other over zealous religious enthusiasts.....
  • I haven't a clue. Wouldn't it depend on his presentation? I mean, if he came across as an Eastern Guru type... you know, universal one-ness or something, then I'd be part of god and there wouldn't be any more point in worshiping him then there is a skin cell in my little finger worshiping me. But if, on the other hand, he came across more like the Biblical one who, despite his all-powerfulness and all-knowingness wants people to feel unworthy to gather the crumbs from beneath his table and all - then probably. After all - I wouldn't want him to flood my world or nuke my city, right? But first, I'd need to be convinced I was actually seeing a god and not having a hallucination or in serious need of psychiatric help. +5
  • What do you even classify god as looking like? I see bearded white guys all the time, but I don't think they're god.
  • If he gave me a reasonable explanation as to why the world isn't really the gigantic f##k up that it appears to be then perhaps I would.
  • i worship him now and ide worship him if he appeared to me
  • i use to be an athieist but now i believe in god and love him and all that good that.
  • No, then I would believe that god existed. The god of the Christians/Muslims/Jews has not done anything to be worthy of worship though, but much to be scorned for. If it's a different god and their actions are worthy then I might be incline to pay my respects to it. Why would a god need my worship anyway, supposedly they are much better than me, I'm insignificant compared to a god, it shouldn't matter to the god whether I worship it or not.
  • I worship my Lord and Saviour everyday.
  • I'd ask for an explanation for all the misery I've been chalking up to bad luck.
  • If a hippo flew up my ass i might think I was constipated too...doesn't prove a hell of a lot since it isn't going to happen. ;)
  • I believe in him, but if I didn't I probably would start to worship him because for some people seeing is believing.
  • Nope, the only person you should worship is yourself.
  • 8-13-2017 Science is anything that can be measured. Spirit is anything that can not be measured. Science is powered by logic and evidence. Spirit is powered by believing and wisdom. No connection. Stop trying to prove or disprove spiritual things with science.
