But it's possibly because they have a worse motive.

@Leadfoot,
You know, "honest." Not being self deluded.

@edgarblythe,
I like what Darwin said about trusting an evolved monkey brain. For you that is.

@hingehead,
If you don't understand that God is an enormous troll, you won't like Him.

If you do, then none of this stuff matters.

Also, 100% of people are killed, with or without using their free will. Also, Jews aren't really favored. Or if they are, God has a weird way of favoring people.

@bulmabriefs144,
I can't tell if you are defending god, trashing him, or just being weird.

@hingehead,
And, is it intentional or not any in one of those examples.

You should know that...oh and your "god" since he is omniscient, us mere mortals cannot yet read minds!

@hingehead,
Suppose you were actively searching for God, and taking a road trip to find him.

Are you expecting to see God as something like this?

No? Then, odds are, God will likely appear as one of the two.

1. The personification of Nature

If #1 is the case, you will likely see God in the beauty and majesty of the natural world.

2. The face of Creation itself, and all created people and things.

"Whenever two or three are gathered together..."

However, if you make this trip intending NOT to see God, you will use every excuse imaginable to declare that you searched for God and didn't find him. Strange coincidences? Yeah,"Stuff just happens."

Suppose I made, not one but two trips, what do you think I would find? Well, I can tell you because I have made such trips. I indeed saw the beauty of nature, and I saw people and stuff doing all kinda coincidental things. It took awhile but I became convinced.

Suppose you take a trip across country, and by the roadside, you ask a lady, "I'm looking for God, where should I start?"
https://image.freepik.com/free-photo/woman-pointing-direction-while-holding-map_23-2148631413.jpg
She'll tell you, "Start by looking in temples." So you visit every temple you come across. When you die, supposing an Afterlife, you ask them, "I visited every temple that I could think of, but I never saw You." And God will laugh, "I told you to visit temples."
