1) Do you think you're day to day life would change.
If there were no God, then most likely there would be no Underworld, Nirvana, Heaven, Avalon, Happy Hunting Grounds, whatever. Therefore it would make
me appreciate life and every passing day all the more, living each day as if it were my last...although now that I consider it, I should be doing that
2) Would you change your behaviour.
Even if I were a devout Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindi, Zoroastrian, etc. it would not change my life in any respect.
I never understood the purpose of being moral to appease a God. That's rather akin to behaving while your parent is watching but being a hellspawn
the moment they leave you with the babysitter, or drop you off at school.
Are religious people really that shallow, fake, and such bold-face liars that they would only behave in the manner in which their religion expects
them to, for no other reason than to gain favor of their God? How pathetic if that is true!
If one is true to themselves (and thereby true to their religion) then they live the way that they do because it is the right course of action, God or
no God. A Seeker of Truth need not have promises of eternal reward and benediction to guide their way. Their actions and behavior are instead tempered
by truth and appropriateness for no other reason that because it is the correct or right thing to do.
3) Would you be harsher to people.
On the contrary! If there were no Divine Intelligence or Being, then I would be nicer to people, knowing that the only thing that differentiates
humankind from the animals is our compassion for others.
4) Would you strive harder in life, knowing your legacy is all there is?
Again, it should not matter whether God does or does not exist to affect the course of our actions! As a responsible adult, one realizes that they
must work hard so that they can become something greater than forefathers and strive to pass that down to their descendants so that they may have the
opportunity to become something greater than you and your forefathers. We are not automatons like Angels who lack Free Will. According to the
Monotheistic religions we were created in Gods Image and given Free Will to grow and aspire to becoming as gods. We possess the uncanny ability to
rise above our surroundings and become something greater than who we are. Angels are like subservient robots that serve one specific purpose and can
never aspire to becoming something greater than what they were programmed to be. No wonder they were so jealous of us monkeys!
(Alas, I digress!)
Whether God does or does not exist shouldn't ever change our desire to strive to become something greater than which we are, something greater than
our ancestors were, and create a legacy to pass down to our children so they can be greater still with each passing generation.
5) Would anything change, would you continue on praying, knowing 100% in your heart you're praying to nothing, but your own imagination.
Yes. Just because it was proven that there is no Divine Intelligence doesn't negate the power of prayer! Whether we are placating the Will of God to
do our own lesser will when we pray, or whether we are utilizing Positive Thinking in doing so, or whether we are taping energies around us and
utilizing them to fulfill our prayers, or whether we are praying to our own Higher Selves or Will, or whether we are unlocking the powers of our
Unconscious Mind, or whether we are accessing the Collective Consciousness, doesn't change the fact that rituals such as prayer work. All that is
happening by disproving a Divine Intelligence is negating one of the explanations for why prayer works, not changing the effectiveness of prayer.
