    I am non religious person and dont believe in god as defined by most religion. But when I look at believers i feel that god or atleast their belief on who so ever they say as god helps them keep going ...god becomes synonyms of hope...so if we minus god what can replace it?

        take a milk pot and think it as god and pray to it as if to god it will do everything  a god can do....

        now coming to the forum
        can we replace god? i'll answer it with another question-can we replace alcohol?
        no matter what you tell them there are some people who are addicted to alcohol, who think all their life problems can be washed out by alcohol, that they will find every reason(irrational or illogical for otherwise normal person) to have alcohol. and you have absolutely nothing to replace alcohol nor the person can see the error in his thinking to mend himself.yes with intense therapies some people do get out of alcohol and lead normal life and live with out any replacement or take useful societal activities as replacement. god is the socially acceptable alcohol and hence most people subscribe to and in consequence think as the normal state. but there really is no need for a replacement for a rational man and can go on with out any substitute..

      If you want? Makes no difference to whether God exists or not. God is a label logic uses to describe a perception of what is.

      If you 'minus' god, as you put it, why would you need to replace it with anything? Just leave the empty space in your heart. You might want to fill it back up one day.

      There is no replacement of the Creator-God; He is Unique.

    I do not believe into "traditional" god of any religion. But I cannot believe into randomness and a "happy chance" of human creation either. But I believe in science and human brain with all its inquisitiveness and curiosity that already created a lot of splendid things in our life. I hope to live long enough to see more of it. we do not need idols to be happy and creative and learn things. Life is a wonderful gift, we do not need to spoil or ruin it. Believe in yourself and into future you can help to build now.

        No. He is the same God, as the one who is supposed to be replaced, according to the op question.
        So, He is not a replacement.

        @beelzedad most including jesus said that...buddha is exception...rest thought they were god or chosen by god...religion runs in that fashion...one man gets convinced , get few followers here and there...then following increases, that man dies and legend grows...same cycle in most religions...nothing new ...human psychology...

       Interesting question.  I would have to say it can't be replaced just like growing up with a very good and close friend.  One might find someone like that good friend but they can't find anyone who can actually replace the memories of joy and sorrow experienced between the two of you.

       Still this was an interesting question.

    There are many other options. Buddhism from what I understand does not follow a god, but a person who lived a very peaceful, loving and fulfilling life. It is based off the practice of meditation.

    Yourself. If you don't believe in god, but you see the effects it has on other people, surely it is because of something in their minds, not outside them. God resides in the brain.

    You could also try the god helmet big_smile

    The Creator-God is unique in the following sense:

    [112:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
    [112:2] Say, ‘He is Allah, the One;
    [112:3] ‘Allah, the Independent and Besought of all.
    [112:4] ‘He begets not, nor is He begotten;
    [112:5] ‘And there is none like unto Him.’

          and so do 399 other people...it is not what you think or what i think matters...what matters is that as human race there are 400 different definitions and all of them claim to be true...since all believe in something which can never be proven right or wrong, all claims are valid in their own rights...but idea of god is unique...
