Why has the idea and/or concept of God and/or Universal Consciousness

    makes so many people quite uncomfortable, uneasy, and/or threatened?

      What people?  Some believe it, others don't.  That in itself is completely non-threatening.

      Of course when actual people get to being nasty to each other over this disagreement, that is another matter.

    I think people take offense at the claim of knowing the unknowable. We can think, or imagine or hope. No one knows and the claim of knowledge, especially of an all powerful God is troublesome. If one exists, why leave some out of the loop? Why would some people be worthy, and others not? It would be horrible to find out a God existed who acted in such a way.

    I think the Universal Consciousness idea threatens many simply because if one existed then, without knowledge of its nature, many might fear it was the general idea of God by one of the monotheistic religions.

    Because they think that God is an imagined concept instead of a real force.  The truth is that God can be detected by non material means because God is a non material force.
    Could God be electro-magnetic energy?
    The power behind radio, TV and cell phones is electromagnetic… and invisible… our consciousness is electromagnetic energy.
    Is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient God a form of electromagnetic energy, as well?
    ...or perhaps God is way more subtle. 
    PS Has anyone closely observed butterfly wings?
    Who designed them? They are so exquisite!

      What is a non-material means?

          Intuition is thought and thought is a product of the brain and the brain is made of matter.

          Try again.

    I think it's all the religions and the arguing, with strong views or threats of punishment if you're wrong or if you question,  that turn people off or intimidate people.

    Of-course there is some natural power which I can not or can never deny but still we have to do analysis over it what exactly it is.
    If its God, who has seen Him? No-one. Its we that made a concept that He exists and looking at us regularly.
