Would God still exist if we weren't on Earth to perceive It/Him/Her?
    #11310031 - 10/24/09 05:22 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Is It/He/She but a figment of human consciousness?

I'd say god is a figment of some kind of consciousness.

I wouldnt doubt that aliens or fish believe in some kind of higher being

However, it is not a part of my consciousness, that is to say I do not believe in a god, but I believe in an energy instead.

And that energy is probably constant through the universe/multiverse.

I go on to say that I completly believe in the "greys", those little bug eyed aliens, and that they are just an evolution of humans.

I think most life in space evolves pretty similarly

I meant "God" in every entailing of the word - whether it be ethereal presence, universal energy, love etc..

an interesting question you bring forth; would other animals feel the presence of "God" as well? I mean, they have freedom of thought right, even though their innate instincts may predominate..

'god' is definitely a word and therefore represented in our mind by a concept. However, whatever name we give to reality, nature, god, etc... we are that, but, and this is important imo, we should never be reduced to the idea or concept in our mind. That would be like reducing what we are to what we think, and that imo is heresy towards reality, nature, god, etc....

I'd say that the "Traditional God" is a TYPE of energy that happens in some people.

The energy I believe in is hard to explain

I guess I could put it as...

"Every being is in control of their own energy. It is of their own choice to control that energy in a positive or negative way"

Once I made this revelation, I realized that you can be happy no matter what is happening in your life at any moment

My answer for you Original Topic would be

YES

because in my belief, that "traditional god" energy has to exist somewhere else other than just Earth

Sorry if I sound like a broken record but...

I imagine that aliens and fish and everything in between is capable of harnessing the "traditional god" energy, so yes I believe that is always going to exist, it's just a life-forms own personal chemistry that channels that energy into it.

That's just my belief though.

hmmm, maybe i could then go further to pose the question; would "God" still exist if any discerning life forms were not to?

STUMPED ME

That would mean that "GOD" is an actual form of matter.

I retract my stumped-ness

In MY belief, the energy that is "GOD" does exist and will always exist in some form, as energy always does.

But like I said, my body doesnt accept that energy

It is programmed to believe what it believes

yah, g*d would take other forms as expressions than 'humans'.
I think, our limited consciousness only points toward something much 'bigger' way down along the road.
The message doesn't equal the messenger.
