This is a tough thing to imagine one way or the other.
Meanwhile, if you're convinced that God doesn't exist, you presume that this world exists as a result of purely natural causes. We act the way we do because we're fashioned by nature to do so. God's existence is a question answered obviously by the world we live in, even if others can't see it.
So today, I'd like you to imagine with me. Let's imagine together, a world that doesn't exist (at least in our minds).
For those who believe in God, imagine a world without him. What does it look like? Do we exist? How do we operate? What meaning is there in living?
For those who do not believe in God, imagine a world with him. What does it look like? Do we exist? How do we operate? What meaning is there in living?
This is an exercise that requires a lot of thought, but it's worthwhile and I think can move the "conversation" about God along further than any of our proofs or reasonings ever could. Please try to think outside of what your belief system requires you to say in response to a question. Instead, reflect on what you honestly, truly believe would be true, not what you've been told would be true.
So let's hear it! What would this imagined world look like in your mind?
