There's a basic philosophical question that gets brought up every now and then, so I figure I'll bring it up here.

Which world, in your opinion would be better to live in:

A world where everyone believes in a moral, righteous, good God. However, this God does not exist.

A world where a moral, righteous, 'good' God exists, but nobody believes in Him.

I'd rather live where everyone believes in a moral, righteous, good God.
It is the people of the world that make it bearable or not, it is their use of this worldview and it's tennets that would keep them from acting like savages towards eachother.
This, of course, depends on whether the people adhere to what they believe or not. (such as the case with humanity is now)

A god who exists without belief is merely an observer.

my opinion.

Peace,

Doesn't this dilemma contradict itself?
