God is needed. but what if God does exist, and lest say a story like Adam and Eve are true. then no, God is just there, they didnt have to make them all up.
As far as the existence or non-existance of a god. My previous post did something. It shows that there was and still is motive for inventions such as God. It shows that people, in those scenerios would have had no choice but to come to that conclusion. It doesnt mean that their isnt a god. All it means is that people should question things more.
A person would have explained something like lightning to be an act of God, but hey withought God none of science or anything would be possible.

Good post. An excellent example of God of the Gaps. Today, the gaps are becoming smaller and less and less "God" is no longer an acceptable answer for natural phenomona that we are capable of understanding. This of course doesnt negate the existence of a God, but it does show the intentions/reasons behind religion. Which is trying to explain things they had no knowledge of. We understand nature a lot better now, back then, it was magic.

seapeople -actually i have never seen a whale with legs! nor has anyone for that matter, actually the apendages you call vestigal legs are absolutely necassary for reproductive purposes. they are found in the male whale only, and are used to support the muscle surrounding his male organ! so nope they dont have legs and never did, unless you think that the female was too inferior to develop legs....i dont think so, not only that but the so called legs are internal and used as structure for muscle to cling to, so that the whale can reproduce!
your above statement clearly pointed to the flood! as to the statement about revision in the 1920s sorry, god said the waters rose up to Cover the highest mountains to 15 cubits, 6.9 meters,or 20 feet. read that again ..to (cover) the highest mountain !!!!
as to the issue of death and god not loving us because he let people die, uum have you ever given birth? i dont think so! the world has 2 doors for humans birth and death...both can be painfull, both are part of the circle....
