The point here is that once my son was grown and I had given him the tools necessary to survive on his own I expect him to do so. I don't believe the first humans were infants incapable of self care.
If the being was incomprehensible then it would not have ever been comprehended. I don't know that God is a being. Maybe God is energy, IDK.
Energy is the source of life; to my knowledge.
You may not have experienced the comfort that belief can give but I have many times. I could have been designed to self medicate or something helped, IDK. I don't think I'd be alive today without that comfort.
Mostly I turned to God because my friends, loved ones, and society let me down. W/o belief in God I would have nothing to calm the troubled waters of my soul Boots.
I think Wheels reiterated my point better than I did--that you're giving a god the credit, when the credit really belongs to you. *shrug*
you have my sympathies that your support network was not what it should have been.
for the record, I have, in fact, experienced the comfort of belief (mainly during the time I watched my mother die of cancer). I have since learned that that belief was ill-placed and unnecessary, as I did not require it to comfort me when my brother took his own life. I believe in myself, and in my children, and my wife. Our love and strength of spirit is enough to see us through. (no gods required)
