Do you think god was given a name out of fear?


Let me explain my logic, which would you be more terrified of? If a doctor told you that you have a serious case of the Flu or if the doctor told you that you have an unknown illness? Most of you will immediately answer the unknown illness, even if it's something that doesn't even have a symptom, while the flu can be fatal in a lot of cases if it's serious. Do you think people gave the alleged entity known as "god" the title of god out of fear?

    Why do you assume the question is talking about the God within the Judeo-Christian construct? Also, the question had nothing to do with God healing the flu... the author is making an analogy comparing how nameless things are scarier than named ones.

    When I lived in China there was never any mention of any gods. They told me that how well your year will go is helped by the amount of noise you make on the new year and they love fireworks. Fireworks are often included in any celebration.

    Wow! That is so true. I don't like it when parents do that.
