    Would proof of God's existence alone be enough for you to worship Him?

    (This is not a trick question and I'm not looking for a debate. I am genuinely curious in what someone who doesn't believe in God would think. Consider it this way, if all of the sudden all of the evidence of His existence was convincing enough for you to change your mind and you began to believe that He is real, would just the knowledge of His existence be enough for you to worship Him? If not, why and what would cause you to worship Him?)

    No. Why would evidence of God's existence convince me to worship Him? The two aren't related. I might discover that God exists, but that He/She/it/They are intensely evil. Should I worship an evil being or beings, just because they are deity? I don't think so.

    You can’t make any person believe in God, either they believe or they don’t believe. It’s a matter of faith. I pray one day that the lord touches all the nonbeliever, skeptic, in the world. Believe in him and he will believe in you.

    not a chance. in fact if god was real i would dislike him so much that worshipping him would never even cross my mind.

    Your cannot find God with your mind. Minds need proofs.
    Everyone one of us consist of three components. The Mind, Body and Soul. Only your soul can feel or experience God.

    The souls of spiritual master have felt parts of God. They seem to be out of their minds. Yes, they learn to feel with their souls. You are not your mind.

    You can read all the scriptures, Bible, Torah, Koran, Bhagavad Gita and you will never experience God. You will not find proof of God. Therefore you cannot change you mind about God.

    One can go into forest or wilderness alone and begin to feel your soul and possibly God. Many great masters, like Jesus, John the Baptist, Buddha, and many eastern mystic have done this.

    This is actually a pretty interesting question. If god existed then we would also have to assume that heaven existed as well. So if I would have to choose between heaven, hell or eternal nothingness, I would choose heaven. Having said that, I would be very upset with god for all the evil and injustice in the world and I would probably annoy the heck out of him with questions. But when it all comes down to it; I don't want to die, I fear death especially because I'm an atheist, and if proof were to surface that an afterlife was possible, I would probably go through the steps to get into it.

    The Created Humans, and d'Ginns, can, with equal felicity ... either Worship, or Reject, God.

    But God Hath only Granted the Absolute Freedom to Humans ... to do, as they please, they may live, with a Free Will  ... But only after Having Shown us the Right Way of Life.

    Your Believing, or not Believing, effects, not in the least ... The Creator, of Heavens, and the Earth, and the Existent Totality of the Physical, and Ideal Universe.

      These are beliefs from ancient society that God created human and the world, but if you use some logic with real science...human and the world were created by...the law of nature science. Think of the gravity on Earth and planets orbiting in space...

    I'm not sure. If God proved they exist (I refuse to use He when it's obvious to me that the Almighty is above the bodily/physical concept of gender) unequivocally, I would still need them to explain the meaning of death and suffering to me. I would need answers to a lot of personal questions, and they'd have to sort out which religion, if any, has the best system in place for the correct worship of them, it's very likely that either we'd need to invent a new religion altogether because we might discover our old books on the subject are out of touch with the reality, or find out that God does not require or need any sort of worship. What kind of transcendent and all-powerful, immortal being would care one way or the other for human worship, and if It did, wouldn't that mean that it was showing human vanity and conceit, and therefore become unworthy of our worship? So, I don't think I would. The deity in question would have to establish his worth to be worshiped, give a reason why It needs worshiping, and only if Its followers could understand the divine purpose suffering and injustice. Job is not good enough. I can't have a God who talks down to me, telling me the answers aren't mine because I'm a human and He is God. That's a cop-out. If I ever spoke with God, I would demand answers. That might sound arrogant, but I just want to know why some babies are born deformed or sick, why bad things happen to good people, why unjust regimes and dictatorships are allowed by It when It has the power over our lives, and, if two opposing baseball teams pray to the same God with equal passion and reverence, which one does It choose, I want to know why so many good people are poor and so many bad people are rich and live blessed lives even though they are greedy and their wealth comes at the expense of millions of workers around the world, why God never let us discover things like penicillin much sooner, why God makes people gay and then makes his supposed followers turn against them with hate and rage, why he had his son come to preach about hypocrisy only to have just as much of it more than 2,000 years later, etc. A God that cannot help me understand questions like that is not worth any of my time.

    God is not looking to be worshiped, so there would be no change for me.

    I believe God is with me everyday.  I don't have to have proof of his existence.  I do worship him along with Jesus and the blessed mother Mary and all the Saints.

    The term God=Dog should be the answer in short. There is definitely God as well as evil God, but God is not your dog to be summon to your wishes. The mindset of a real God would not want people to worshiped them anyway...just like do you worshiped your President or do you just respect him or her?
