Well, what if there is a God and this happens because God wants more people to believe and not fear dying?
We made up god so we wouldnt be afraid of dying and still we are. A real god would not need to play mind games with people. It would simply state this as the truth with words and actions that would leave no doubt. You know like when your parents or a teacher says this or that will happen if you misbehave and you know its the truth and you dont need to be convinced of it because the teacher or your parent is real and can take the action they speak of. If god were real, it would be as real as that parent or teacher and there would be no doubt. But no, the gods of the men of earth are tricksters and decievers and leave it all to belief. One would think that omnipotence would be beyond such games. The gods of men are petulant children demanding attention and belief. If god were real it would make sure that everyone knew it and there would be no doubt. If I were god I would sure not leave this to chance or belief. Lets put it this way, my children never doubt my love for them or that I will protect them in any way that is demanded of me. They dont have to beg or implore me to do this, I do it out of real love. But you have to beg and plead and pray to get anything out of god.
