  1. I mean, I’d argue you should not, but personal opinions aside, the best argument I know **for** believing in God (though the science is a little spotty on which God this applies to so YMMV) is [Pascal’s Wager](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pascal%27s_wager).

    Do, however, note before you dive down the rabbit hole, that there are many responses and refutations of the wager, which argue it’s total bullshit and moves the goalposts, so be sure to get both sides of the argument if you’re really curious about this.

    I, personally, don’t believe in a God or any higher power. Fully on the side of empirical science. But I don’t judge those who do, and I don’t claim to know for certain there isn’t one.

  2. Just go to the forest, identify the right mushrooms, eat 2,5 grams of them dried and you’ll get to feel the presence of what could be called god. It’s not a grey old man on a cloud, it’s something unspeakably beautiful and you’re a part of it. There, your evidence. People have been doing this for tens of thousands of years, as evident from cave paintings. And it’s surprisingly safe if you can identify the correct species. If it worked for the caveman and for me, it will work for you.

  3. Just putting it out their but they are people who believe in Hell but not in God……I mean if their is a Hell then their must be a Heaven/God right? Unless their is an religion on that….idk but yeah….

  4. Counterpoint: to me, whether he exists or not is irrelevant. I’d *never* worship such a capricious and cruel creature. Condoning slavery? Advocating killing entire communities except the young women to keep as sex slaves? Killing children for teasing someone? Dashing infants on rocks? etc etc etc

    Yeah, no thanks. Hard pass.

    *And to the people that will inevitably tell me i’m taking things out of context: my reading comprehension is just fine, thanks and you can fuck allllll the way off.

  5. Do I believe in history or not? Did the Roman’s rule the know earth at the that time. Was there really a Julius Caesar, or Cleopatra. Before Jesus, Idk, I wasn’t alive then. Did ww1 happen, I never saw it or ww2 for that matter. I just read it did. Idk.
