This is less of a debate, but more of a question to all the Atheist's on this sub.

Do you want there to be a God? I mean, if suddenly there was overwhelming and absolute evidence of a god, would you be disappointed that your belief (EDIT: lack of belief in a God/religion) as an Atheist was wrong or would you be glad and pleased that you were wrong.

I ask this question because I think there are certain benefits to a god existing.

I think a faith in religion gives people peace of mind. Allows them to be confident that there is something after death and that they don't just....die. I think religion helps control people. They want to be good people so that they are rewarded in the afterlife. Believing in a faith also makes dealing with the death of a loved one easier as theists believe they are in a better place. It's nice to know that an all powerful entity is watching over you and can hear/ help you and that we exist on Earth for a reason.

To me it is clear that a religion and the idea of a god gives a lot of benefits and comforts, and strength to the people that believe in religion, regardless of whether a god actually exists.

So I ask all the Atheists. Do you want God to exist?

Warning! The following might be offensive to some (mostly theists). It's not my intention to actually be offensive, cruel or demeaning. but merely to describe the way I think/feel about certain topics. Sometimes there's simply no better way to describe something than the way you think it is.

Do I want there to be a god? My "TL;DR" is going to be a straightforward no. Why no? Well I'm going to go with the assumption you're parth of, or mostly familiar with, any denomination of Christianity/Islam/Judaism. If not, not all of the following may apply but fat chance most of it applies anyway.

I believe your god is a narcissist. He wants your praise and adoration. If you don't comply, which you can choose since he's given us "free will", you're up for a long ass roast/eternal loniless/emptiness (w/e form of afterlife you picture for heathens and sinners).

I believe your god is a serial-killer. Sodom and Gomorra; got Godnuked basically. The great flood; fuck the Aztecs, fuck the Africans, fuck everything that's never heard of me and even some that HAVE heard of me. Every firstborn Egyptian; because nothing deserves a kill as much as a newly born. 42 Boys who mocked a guy for having a bald head; death by tag-team bears. Basically I believe that killing babies/todlers and kids (who haven't even had a chance to develop a moral sense of right/wrong) is a dick move.

I believe your god is either insane or just sheer evil. Pick either, both work. So after (omnipotent) god slapped the Israelites into proper order (read: kill the odd 10.000 Israelites here and there) he guides them and supports them (read: still kills Israelites on a regular basis) because they're his "chosen". He'll also regularly kill stupendous amounts of non-Israelites because they're NOT the chosen people. THEN god decides the Israelites fucked up one too many times and they're no longer his favorites.
So when an omnipotent being kills a batshit-insane amount of people, knowing that none of that is going to make enough of an impact to change a damn thing; that's just another definition of insanity.

I believe your god is corrupt. I don't know about you but if my mom or dad favored one (or more) of my siblings and acted in accordance with their preference I'd be pretty upset.

So if your god suddenly turned out to be true and revealed himself I'd get on my knees immediately and pray he removes his bearded presence to a dimension far far away, lock the interdimensional door and throw away the key.

"Faith in religion gives people peace of mind". Yup, we agree on this one. There's even research out there (I'd have to look it up if you want the source) that certain people are better off a theist (as opposed to an atheist). Do note that faith also stirs up a lot of stuff. From the crusades and inquisitions to modern-day people sending their gay son/daughter to camps to be "cured", telling their children about hell and how you'll burn to a crisp if you're a sinner.... all the way up to religious fanatics who will kill for the sake of their religion/god.

On to " They want to be good people so that they are rewarded in the afterlife. "
The Irish didn't give 2 shits about the bloody afterlife, they cared about killing as many of their countrymen because they had different beliefs. The KKK doesn't quite agree with you either. Uganda, where over 100.000 people have been tortured, raped and/or murdered so a Christian state could be established. Then there's Muslims (some, not nearly all) who believe that killing non-believers is basically a virtue.

Next one I'm splitting for the sake of easier reading: " It's nice to know that an all powerful entity is watching over you and can hear/ help you".
No, no it's bloody not. Every minute 29 children under the age of 5 die. That's 29 children he's watching over and not lifting a finger to do anything about it.

"and that we exist on Earth for a reason. "
We don't excist FOR a reason and you know what; there doesn't have to be a reason. I'm cool with the idea that, for reasons still unknown, the big bang set everything in motion and couple of of billion years later here we are having our little discussion. Some day, hopefully in a far far future, I'll die and things will be back to the way it was before I was born. I wasn't aware of not being born, I wasn't aware of the fact that I was going to be born and come to think of it, I remember nothing from before I was born. And I never will. Now if I'm right there's nothing after death so when I die it's lights out and.....well, nothing. And that's fine, because that's where I used to be and that's never bothered me back then, nor now, so I'm betting it's not going to matter when I'm dead either.

So I'm curious. Has my answer provided you with any (new) insight as to why an atheist wouldn't want, any, god to be real? Do you have any questions regarding the above? I know I have a question or two. First I'd like to refer back to one of your statements: " To me it is clear that a religion and the idea of a god gives a lot of benefits and comforts, and strength to the people that believe in religion, regardless of whether a god actually exists. "

How is it clear? What exactly is it that makes it so clear to you? Which benefits/comforts/strengths do you believe people get from religion? I'm curious to hearing your take on this.

Thanks for your response. You make a lot of good points on how the common version of God is not a good entity.

To answer your question : "How is it clear? What exactly is it that makes it so clear to you? Which benefits/comforts/strengths do you believe people get from religion? I'm curious to hearing your take on this."

It is clear to me at least because I see the benefits in the people in my life that do believe in a God. A belief gives them hope and strength that when a hurricane destroys there house and everything they own is gone, that God will help them through the suffering of starting over from nothing. Those that belief in a God are comforted when they or someone they love is dying. They have the hope of something good after death. A community and social belief in God gives believers a family of fellow believers that will help, care, and guide them through hard times and suffering. Those people that believe in a God have the benefit of feeling protected/ listened to by there God. A belief in God allows them to face difficult struggles in life because they know God is guiding them through the hard times.

Jumping in here, because I, too, would not want to live forever.

Experiences get old and uninteresting to us over time and with repetition. Now suppose that you have infinite time. Eventually, you will have done literally everything possible literally infinitely many times. And that’s if you retain the ability to choose what to do. Being forced to exist eternally without the ability to choose what to do would be torture along the lines of I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. I can’t think of anything more horrific than that.

Edit: Verb tense and mood.

that does make a lot of sense. If you lived for eternity eventually you would become bored of everything and suffer. Thanks for the explanation

I guess this isn't really a debate, I'm just wondering what you guys think happens after someone dies. I'm going to assume that Atheist's think that you simply cease to exist and nothing happens, but I'm not sure so please correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit: thanks for all the responses. I have a pretty good idea as to what Atheist's believe occurs after death now. I must say, this subreddit seems to respond faster and in more force than most subreddits that have hundreds of thousands of members. It's amazing :)

Well, over time my body will start rotting and decay until such a time where there's not much left besides bones. Unless we're to assume the dead are going to walk the earth again, in which case I guess I'd be a pretty sad zombie since I'd be underground with no way to get out.

Do I think there's anything for my consciousness after I die? Nope. It's similar to asking what kind of light is produced by a burnt out bulb. The bulb itself may still exist but it's not doing anything.

Earth and the Galaxy had to have been created or caused to exist by something and someone. If it's a God or creater then either that God or creater existed forever or something else created the God. And then something had to have created that God and so on. Basically, at some point something just existed in the beginning of Time with no real explanation or creater. Does this prove that a supernatural exists?

Edit: I appreciate all of your comments. I apologise if I don't reply to you all because so many of you have commented (and continue to comment). I will try to respond to as many comments as possible. I wanted a debate, and I got one lol. This subreddit did not disappoint, so thanks for the comments and discussion.

Edit 2: I have noticed that lots of people are asking questions that I have already answered. The top few comments contain my answers to the common questions that are being asked. Thanks for all the responses!

The world is a perfect living place for lots of species

The people and animals trying to barely survive the last ice age disagree with you .

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

The animals unable to survive as the Earth changes die off. This causes only the strongest organisms in each environment to survive and brings out the best in those species. Overall, this causes the world to becone a better place for life and balance

There's seems to be a huge misunderstanding on your part concerning the process of evolution. Now of course you cannot be to blame for that as such.

Evolution is not in any way a process that automatically goes ever upward in complexity. Evolution is in no way a road that leads to man. And also, it is not a guided process.

Man is a species like any other. We're not better, more important or more evolved than other species. A snail is as evolved as us. And species do not "constantly become better", whatever you mean by better. Some species have remained the same for millions of years.

The fact that there is a chance for us to populate other planets cannot be tied to the process of evolution. There's no connection here. And apart from that, the chances of us actually populating other planets are extraordinary slim.

I'm not attacking you here. Just saying: Inform yourself on what evolution actually is. Your picture of it has obviously been tainted by people who'd have you believe it is something it's evidently not.

Well, I'm trying to say that because the Earth changes over time, the strongest and best version of the species' is able to survive. This causes the most fit organism in each environment to survive and this leads to the extinction of the weaker organisms for there environment.
