Featured God has to prove to me that He exists: what kind of proof should I demand?

    I have not been given any secrets by any God and since I do not look for messages any more, I highly doubt that He will impose anything on me now.

    If that's the case then reason suggets that the blame is on the government and not god since he doesn't exist, wouldn't you say?

    It was not verifiable to me. And I have spent years searching. All delusional speculation based on how the human mind conjures up realities for itself based on wishful thinking upon preconceived notions.

    He won't impose anything on you.

    Thank you for that assurance from your God experience.

    You had said that you "need to know what kind of God would stand idly by and simply witness the persecution that was unleashed upon me by the United Kingdom State without any conscience to bother His mind." it sounds to me like you're saying that if G-d exists you want to hold Him accountable for not helping in your time of great need... maybe i misunderstood...

    If they could arbitrarily alter reality. If God could make me handsome and rich, I might start believing in miracles.

    If I were God, and you were demanding that I prove to you that I exist, I would slap you up-side your head (so to speak), hard, for your arrogance. It's a good thing, then, that if God does exist, It does not respond to human arrogance as I would.

    If He existed as the Lord of the Universe (like I am led to believe He may be) He is solely to blame for the persecution that I suffered howsoever it was manifested upon me through government agencies.

    @Shantanu What kind of an experience would you need in order for you to believe in God? Just what would it take?

    It would be a miracle for God to show Himself to me now, for I have asked all the questions that He needs to furnish answers to.

    I ran out of time to find God: it had to be within this life time and I am 62 years of age. I do not believe in reincarnation and so subsequent lives. I think this is the only life we are ever going to have and so all the questions must be answered in that time: arrogance or no arrogance.

    He could not do it to even one human being.

    I accept there are some questions I may never have an answer for. So looking for some answers maybe a waste of time. Spend your whole life looking, then you die, none wiser.

    I decided to work on things more achievable. If at some point the ultimate "Truth" presents itself, I'll deal with it then.

    In that case, I'm afraid you're destined to be an atheist, unless God indeed does decide to do something about it, which I personally would be surprised.
