Is There a God? - Lol

I expected this thread to be a lot more euphoric than it actually is
It's possible to crack jokes about the subject and wax opinionated without sounding like a total arrogant dumbshit. It's also possible to honestly believe that there's not likely to be a God as laid out by any belief system thus far without completely discounting the possibility that you may be wrong.

I may lean heavily agnostic-to-atheist but don't get me wrong I WISH there were some presiding authority of whom I could ask questions like "What exactly the fuck were you thinking when you created this?"

I feel like it really could go either way. On one hand, the existence of a tangible deity would be difficult to reconcile with our ever-expanding observation and understanding of the universe (not to mention the whole "if God exists why do bad things happen" issue). Then again, if a deity did indeed exist, it would most likely have the capacity to exist outside of the laws of physics, or perhaps even outside of the observable universe entirely. I'd like to think that we as a species will someday know for sure whether a God exists, but for now I'm content with having to wait until I pass on to find out.

None of the strange and occasionally frightening things that I've seen in my life need a god to explain them. I don't know what exactly is going on though.

Does that make me an agnostic? Or maybe I'm just a confused heathen, misremembering school lessons and bible verses.

I've seriously tried reading through Bible verses and deciding what the lessons were and after enough cases of me opining on them and being told "NO YOU'RE WRONG" and going back to them and puzzling it out and being told by another person who apparently knew better than me again "NO YOU'RE WRONG" I just said "fuck this, I've seen this game often enough before, shove your fucking book up your ass".

If there's a God in the Christian fashion and he cares to grant me a revelation I won't mistake for anything else, I welcome him to do so. He would know exactly how to do it, after all. His fanclub kind of fucking sucks, though.

(I wish I was joking, Sheela used to divinley appoint kings by trying to foist herself upon them as an old hag who got sexier mid intercourse)
This was known as the the sheela na gig economy

I don't have any reason to believe in God or any gods as such. But as the Euphoric Atheists thread shows, if someone's entire response to religion is "haha god isn't real, fuck to religion and all its works" then there's a good chance that person is a sped. Like congrats on feeling superior to millenia of human history and culture, your descendants definitely aren't going to be laughing at any of your dumbass beliefs.

I think there are things in our culture that fill the emotional space that religion used to occupy. I'm specifically picturing the shrine of funko pop dolls in the background of every picture of a NEET den. And a celibate priesthood is not longer an option for incel atheists in these enlightened times, so instead they practice monastic devotion to a (*Depeche Mode plays*) personal Venus, aka a waifu. Otherkin shit is a spiritual practice, and a lot of furries talk about how they want to be like their fursonas, going so far as to commission votive art to show their devotion and feel closer to their favorite characters.

The revelation that I was given included an explanation of the creatures giving it
They were not divine and the entire purpose of disclosing their biological nature was to deny divinity

The fact I exist makes me think that something is going on above my perception, and I take comfort in believing that thing is the Christian God I was raised with.

I don't believe in anything supernatural at all, but I'm superstitious. The fuck, brain?

Actually mildly triskadekaphobic myself for no reason I can fathom. I just don't like leaving things at "13". Also I do the salt thing and basically never open umbrellas until I'm fully clear of whatever building.
