Would you worship a god if one existed?

I personally wouldn't even if it was a good god, I find the entire idea demeaning but what are everyone else's thoughts? What if there were benefits?

I am way to self centered to worship anything or anyone other than myself

6

A God who protects only those who worship him is not a God....

Very logical

5

There is no god. There is no evidence of any gods. Why would one choose to worship something that does not exist. That is the issue that religious people fail to grasp.

5

Frankly, any God who needed or cared about your worship is an obvious fraud.

i worship the sun as it keeps me alive and asks for nothing.

4

Any being that is powerful enough to be called a god should be of strong enough character that he/she/it does not require nor want worship.

First of all ,I do not believe in any gods of any kind,and even if it were a good god,it would not deserve to be worshiped ,But hypothetically,What if you added to your question ,that this God had the power to send you to a place where you would burn and suffer for eternity if you did not kiss his ass . To me the Gods that believers worship possess the same sadistic ,selfish, revengeful tendencies as dictators .People that live under a dictatorship must bow down and worship these tyrants or they will also be sent to a place where they will suffer.

No more than I would a more experienced co-worker or a teacher whom I could learn from.

Unless it turned out to be one of those green women from Star Trek. Then I might consider it.

If I did I wouldn't be on this site.

No I would not worship any god.Mostly because I do believe in a creator that does not require worship nor does he make judgemments. No god would sensibly create anything only to have slavish devotion,or else why give their creations free choice.

Worship is such a weird concept to me now. I actually had to ask Google what it meant to make sure. "the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity" Okay, given that definition, sure. No deity I have ever been presented with, but if the right one came around. Nonetheless, I answered no. Even though it isn't in the definition, in my experience it usually means uncritical reverence and adoration. I can't get down with that.

No, if a god was proven exist, I don't think he or she or it will be that humble-minded to demand people to worship otherwise not worthy to be worshiped. So, I can consider him/ her/ it just a friend.

Why would a deity require worship? To be worshiped is a human emotion and a major flaw in charter. Not all people want to be worshiped, however it is a madness people with great power desire.

I don't have a valid vote because of a lot of contingencies.

First of all, how would this god reveal itself? Even if there were a booming voice which spoke to all the people of the world simultaneously saying something like "ok, you are finally ready. You are worthy of worshiping me now so let's get started."

mmmmk. So what god are you exactly? What proof do you offer? Even before I'd blame aliens I'd consider the possibility of an Illuminati type of new world order populace control operation. I'd need considerable convincing.

Benefits of the worship would definitely come into play but the rituals of the worship would be more important to me. How long is this going to take? Are the actual rituals something beneficial to me or just you needing me to make you feel important?

Are you THE god or are there others? If there are others what do they have to offer and what will they require of it? When will these benefits manifest? If we're talking about some "great beyond" no thanks...we have a world of religions making the same empty promises.

Even though I'm Agnostic I just don't see me worshiping anything. Two points I find abundantly clear: 1) All the world religions are man-made and have very clear basis in mythology bent into population control and 2) IF there is a god it has no desire or need to be worshiped.

Loved the statement . I have the same thought on control about many subjects.

3

But what is this God’s power. Was he the one that created everything, or was he not that God. If he was the one that did do it all, I’d want to ask so many questions. I wants to know the purpose of childhood cancer! I want to know why food is not more plentiful so starvation could be avoided. Why are there birth defects?

Sad to say Over population is proof that food is definitely plentiful .

I can understand those people who say no , but why automatically give human attributes to an undefinable unknowable source? The human animal is , for the most part, selfish, stupid, racist, sexist , needy, insecure, vengeful and violent. Why automatically give these characteristics to God in this hypothetical question? the word worship means something different to everybody. And yes, for the most part, I am a misanthropist.

3

Probably not.

what happens if i don't worship him

2

How about "Yes, if this god did such great deeds as to deserve a bit of worship." Otherwise, this god has to prove that he or she is worthy of my attention.

I'll stick to worshiping dogs. They're much nicer, and always happy to see you.

Not with what ive seen going on.

If it is a real all-knowing,omnipotent,always present and specially an all-loving one then i do.

I answered no. I would probably be appreciative of said God, but I don't see myself "worshiping" that god.

Any god so vain that needed to be worshiped by us is pathetic. If it was a god, the difference between us and it would be far greater than the difference between us and microbes. What would you think of a person that wanted worship from microbes?

I don't believe in worship I believe in democracy.
