    And I would appreciate a serious answer.

    If there was absolute proof that God exists, would you worship Him? No commemtary required. Just a simple yes or no.
    EDIT: I'M REFERRING TO THE CHRISTIAN GOD IN THE BIBLE.

    I’m not an atheist, I believe there is a god although my interpretation of god is far different from yours I’m sure, and No, I don’t worship god.

    Hell no.

    If I'm wrong and he does exist he's got a lot to answer for.

    But it’s not a simple yes or no. Which god, what constitutes “worship,” what proof, and how does the proven entity differ from the current multiple conflicting claims?

    See, theists have a firm idea of what “god” means, or they wouldn’t believe in any. But atheists, by definition, don’t have a belief on what any god would be like if any existed.

    If some other god, different from the one you worship, we’re proven to be true, would you worship that god?

    Odd question. We’re lectured continuously by the more excitable Christians that there is absolute proof.

    The tales and fables of the gods of Christianity tend to depict an angry, vindictive personification of humans. Why would anyone worship those kinds of gods?

    All the preachers and Christian nutjobs regularly tell me to "worship" God, yet they also tell me that Jesus and God are one and the same, as well as place a whole bunch of emphasis on how I should make a friend in Jesus.

    I don't worship the people I'm friends with.
