Hypothetical Question: What if it were proven there's only one true God and It wasn't your God?


For this question, you must use your imagination. You must pretend the premise of the question is true and then answer it accordingly. The premise is that God has been discovered and it's been proven there's just the one (and, for this hypothetical question, you believe it) and it isn't the God you currently believe in. For instance, if you believe in Yaweh, the God is some other God who doesn't conform to the personality or behavior of the God in the Bible in any significant way. For purposes of the question and only of the question, the real God is not yours and there are no others.

    No, I wondered if believers could imagine their particular God not being real after reading answers to Brad's question that showed some can't imagine a world in which no God exists. I'll keep your rant so people can see what kind of person you are.

    You described something like the stages of grief in there. Would it be fair to say you'd grieve your old beliefs and then change at your own pace to accept and live with the new reality?

    With which sense or senses do you "witness" your god?

    I'd be mighty surprised myself as I don't believe in any Gods either. I think reactions would all be quite personal. Thank you for your answer.

    This makes a lot of sense and I appreciate your insight. The Baha'i probably wouldn't have many adjustments to make and it sounds like they'd be there to help everyone adjust, accept, and thrive after what might be a shock.

    So are you saying that you would decide your earlier ideas about God were mistaken or just undeveloped and you'd change your beliefs to fit the revealed God or that you'd cling to your beliefs that didn't match the revealed God's reality?

    Thank you. For purposes of this question the God revealed can be assumed to be neither evil, finite, nor uncaring just different from the God you expected in the details, like maybe God is genderless and didn't write or inspire the Bible.

    Writing a question to get atheists and believers to think about beliefs is a waste of time but leaving a personal attack on such a question isn't? Why does the question make you so angry you had to answer it with your rant?

    Thank you for answering. What if the God's plan is for us to go through the pains of growing up on our own and making our own mistakes?

    I find your response interesting. What if the revealed God had no Hell option for people, just a healing of every spiritual illness in the afterlife instead?
