jp255 Posted November 22, 2012 Share Posted November 22, 2012 (edited) I started this thread in attempt to find out people's views on how they are able to worship a creator of the universe. Discussion of whether or not a creator exists or not is not the intention of this thread, and I'd ask non-believers to ask themselves "would I worship a creator of the universe if it's existence were proven?". When I consider this question and ask it to myself, I respond no. If a creator's existence were proven even hypothetically I could not worship it, simply because I couldn't allow myself to worship the being/thing that invented/designed the concept of survival of the fittest, as well as many of the nasty possibilities present in the fitness landscape (genetic diseases etc.). I wouldn't consider the creator to be loving as some people do, and because of this I find it difficult to understand or even relate to people who maintain religious beliefs (only on this particular topic, and maybe a few others) and I find it difficult to understand how such religious concepts/ideas are so successful as memes! So I ask other people (that do genuinely believe in a creator without the hypotheitcal consideration), how can you worship a creator of the universe? Don't any of my points make worshipping a god hard to do? and would any non-believer's respond to the question? discussion of evidence for a creator is off topic.
