    1) I neither agree nor disagree with above. You write "this i believe". I do not criticize other's belief

    2) If asked about my view on what you wrote...
    * I rather not say "God = ...", as this would define God, and even place God in a box, worse even, I put God in a box. "Who Am I", to put God in a box?

    *) I rather not say "God wants ...", I do not know what God wants. I would first need to define God, which I rather don't do. Using the word "only" in this context feels double wrong

    *) I rather not say "because it was God who ...", the Wise declared that God is beyond such duality, which makes sense to me

    *) I would also say "this I believe":)

    I agree.

    I see we can get to know the One God through all the Messengers.

    This brings up an interesting question:

    Is a psychosomatic "benefit" really a benefit?

    (Warning: we're heading into "God as a placebo" argument.

    As one is only implied by the human thinking it.... one can mean lots of statuses.

    One mass
    One planet.
    One heavens.

    One human just one self a human thinking.

    One.

    Remove one in my mind as a theory. The theist imposing the status.

    In reality a human already gets minused one by death.

    One anything else would still exist without the human.

    Why it was preached.

    What facts support your decision and opinion that this particular God exists, and not some other god or gods, if any at all?

    Men a group not one but lots of one selves agree.

    Put the Onus on one man only to tell the truth.

    The spiritual human teaching about satanic theists. Science practice machines.

    One thinker one man one human one designer one builder one controller machine.

    Where is the other one?

    Oh you mean a human female life continuance O by ovah!

    No God in machine.
    No God outside machine life continuance.

    Reason he lived owning the ovary O beginning himself as father ours was never the baby man scientist.

    My female father conscious teachings about one.

    So science never owned one God the teaching his thesis were satanisms the advice.

    I do not think a psychosomatic benefit is really a benefit. In other words, if God does not exist any benefit would just be a placebo effect, and I don't see any benefit in worshiping a nonexistent entity just to feel good.

    I've created or helped in the creation of various things, including my children, but I've never wanted them to worship me.

    Wanting to be worshiped reminds me of Donald Trump.

    If man's god pre exists then he said it was memory recorded of man within the Satan angel. Memories. Recordings kept. Advice of man's pre God destruction.

    Reason in modern day science after ice age the new God saviour saved our heavens as a state cooled said man heard old man's scientific thesis pyramid speaking to him.

    Man's machine earth metals not sun radiating metals. Suns metals attacks our metals machine mass overheats.

    I saw pyramid vision radiation passing through pyramid walls as outside facure cooling of pyramid pressurised by facure by pump of water over it had failed and self combusted life.

    Machine metal guaranteed to overheat explode.

    Hence he was told by Satan man angel image all life had been destroyed by the Satan imaged angel advice. Science always knew why we titled them Satanists.

    Consciousness and destroyer mentality the topic of advice.

    Satanists changed their title to scientist.

    In reality what father told me to tell you.

    Scientist never listens to our holy father man's correct consciousness as father was never a scientist satanist.

    Can you list this 3,600 Gods and what you know about them and why you would consider all of them as equal?

    Look at this thread. There are those who claim "there is no God" as if they have physical, empirical evidence to show that "there is no God". Why dont you see that as "so much for humility"? Just out of curiosity.

    You could begin by looking up H.L. Mencken's "Where is the Graveyard of Dead Gods?"

    You are welcome to your belief. I do not believe in existence of any. My people (other Hindus) believe that there are thousands of Gods and Goddesses. Place your evidence and let it not be some heavily edited Third Century book.
    Why does he want to be worshiped? What does he get out of it? Why does he have such a bloated ego?
    It is the absence of credible evidence about existence of God or claims of being prophets / sons / messengers / manifestations / mahdis which makes me deny them. It is something like the elephant in the room. I see none.
    Some are listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hindu_deities. Actually, there are too many to count.
    No, they are not all equals, they are graded according to their functions. For example, Yama is the God of Death. He does not equal Shiva, Vishnu or Mother Goddes Durga. Dhanavantri is the divine physician, Vishwakarma is the divine architect, Kuber is the divine cashier, and so on.
    There, there. Now you understand.

    I agree but only that you believe that for yourself in your mind.

    I disagree. I'd like to hear any argument for WHY you believe that God exists.

    Uncritical adulation, perhaps linked with a sense of duty.
