    do you think god's value would remain if there are no humans..god needs human since humans can only pray , hope and believe..do you agree to this?

      if no humans existed how would we know whether a god would be devalued?

      You live in India and you're an intelligent human being yet you've only mention god in a singular way when it's clear that more than one god is worshipped.

      Do all people who hope and believe turn to god or do they just use their own initiatives to get answers?

        I've learned that there is only one God in the Hindu religion, with many visual representations, each having its own name, each representing a particular characteristic of the one God.

        @Joe Badtoe if no humans existed how would we know whether a god would be devalued?..valid question..that is what i am asking..do u agree to the statement or disagree with it?

        Do all people who hope and believe turn to god or do they just use their own initiatives to get answers?...hope is universal..some try to seek answers through religion , some through non religious means..

          it's a question that is impossible to answer

          If you believe in a god then logically you would have to answer the question of whether an entity can be devalued by something (us) that no longer exists.

          If you're an aethist the question you ask becomes taboo.

      Oh! I never knew animals and creatures too pray, hope and believe and that if human race becomes extinct, they will continue with nourishing God!

      When one understand these popular phrases there will be no need to ask such a question.

      God is in you and among you (men).
      God is all things
      God is in all things.

      It is a pointless question which ever side of the line you are on.

        Surely that's a matter of opinion Kess?

        Whilst I respect your beliefs I'm not sure that your god is anwhere near me and it seems a bit too fantastical to accept that a god can be everything and everywhere at the same time.

        Otherwise I'd have some serious questions about the lapse in concentration that allowed some bad stuff to happen.

          My friend understand this..

          Truth and opinions are opposites.

          Those with Truth therefore will not give an opinion for he will only perpetuate vain debates.These have knowledge

          Those without Truth, the best they can do is have an opinion and all they can ever see in others is opinions...then the debate will rage on endlessly.
          These are ignorant.

          Truth nevertheless will accomplish it's work in both the ignorant and the knowledgeable.

          But it better for you to be knowledgeable.

            Kess my friend

            Truth is subjective and your truth might be different to mine. The same goes for knowledge.

            The worst thing a man can do is force their 'truth' on others who do not share such a truth or who happen to have a different truth.

            Peace..

        wait i would write a book ..then you might believe that i exist lol .

        isnt it ironical ..you are ready to believe a man who was born some years ago who in turn confirmed about some man who existed thousand years ago , who told you that god exist and HE gave message through some angel which only this man could see..he further verified that christ too existed some another 500 years from 1400 years ago ...now you can believe all these while you never saw these three man in ur life , never spoke to them , never knew anything about them..still you dont doubt their existence or what they claim and the person who chats with you , you ask him to prove his existence lol..now this is called perfect faith..i congratulate you for that..

      Since man created God if there is no man there is no god.

          May be because He(God) has no life!

          God is simply an idea. Without man there are no ideas. Therefore no god.

        @hokey..ya that is my whole point..and suppose we say god created man for sake of argument..now without man , god is as good as dead..bcoz no one knows he exist except speculations by species called homo sapiens..rest things cannot think and animals dont pray..so to satisfy ego of god as most religions have ego centric god , HE is dependent on humans...

        I have heard that. 
           I am the center of my own personal universe.
          But I didn't create it,  I simply found myself in the center of it. And everyone on the face of this planet is the center of theirs.   The earth can be said to be our galaxy.

            I wonder where the black hole is that keeps us all in orbit.
