You can ask God anything. Whether or not you get an answer would,of course, depend on you, not least of which would be to believe you're actually being answered.
daydreamer - that is the question that dashing would ask --- "Why?"
Yes Austinstar, I'm asking dashingscorpio to be a bit more specific.
Which god would I be asking? There are about 3,00 - 8,000 gods that supposedly rule over the Earth.
I would ask different gods for different things. The Rain god is for rain (oh, rain is the result of evaporation and condensation, not gods). I could ask Thor to eat crackers in my bed :-) that would be fun.
I would not ask...I'd just say: Thanks -- I enjoyed the trees, the beach, my woman, my life, the warm sun, my kids, my family, books... a loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou...
I would ask that ISIS be done away with as well as all other terrorists.
All "gods" represent the same God who appears in different names and forms according to the culture, time and circumstances.
This is clearly expressed in advanced highly evolved spiritual and historical theory.
Those who can't accept this idea, particularly atheists who like to promote obfuscation and who agree with narrow extreme fundamentalists, are being plain ignorant.
And the Christian god is the same as the Muslim god, right?
Austinstar - yes. Both Christianity and Islam have about the same amount of bloodshed in their histories,
Yoleen - Its the same EXACT god! They are both praying to Yahweh - the god of Abraham. Islam accepted Jesus as a prophet, while Christians turned him into the messiah (both Jesus' are the same man). But they each THINK their god is better? Why? ???
It is based on the age-old. competition between Abraham's two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. Not that it matters, since neither one prevented the Holocaust.
And the fact that the god of Abraham doesn't even exist.
As I said , atheists who promote obfuscation and low IQ right wing fundamentalists have one thing in common: religious intolerance.
God is love.
Opinions aside, none of this really answers the question.
I would be my selfish old-self and quite simply ask for forgiveness of myself and my loved ones.
I thank you all for stopping by and giving your views and thoughts on this. It's all very interesting.

Sometimes I think radical Islam and radical Christianity have more in common with each other than they do with any of the more moderate or secular belief systems. All this burning in hell for all eternity and everything. It's evil, isn't it? Not to put too fine a point on it, what's the...

If God Gave you Three wishes, what would you ask for, go big.If God gave you three wishes to have anything and I mean anything what would you want?

I would be interested to hear personal stories from atheists or agnostics about how you came to be a non-believer. A summary of my personal story:I was born and raised as a fundamentalist Christian and considered myself to be one until about the age of twenty. My transition from Bible believing...

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?

Especially the vocal ones, like the ones we all know on HP. Atheism is just a stage you go through before you truly find God. That's one of the reasons I love you guys so much.

Come let us reason together and ask ourselves some questions. Why we still alive...are how many friends of ours died this year or probably how many of them died before today... Or perhaps how many of them are in hospital right now? and we are here on hub pages trying different tricks on how to be...
