    If you had absolute proof God existed, would you listen to what He had to tell you and do what He said?

    Only if He Spoke to me directly rather than through some self serving intermediary with an agenda.

    Oh, and I'd need to see ID.

    Though a miracle or some other similar magic trick would do.

    I can honestly say No. Even if he was God how would I know which stories are true. Old testament, new testament, torah, koran....etc. What I'm saying is how do we know he's not here trying to kill us all again because I'm not going to help with that.

    Yes I know because I'm not religious so god wouldn't come and talk to me.

    I would to a point. If God told me to kill someone for example, I wouldn't do it.

    I don't believe the bible stories where God told people to offer up human sacrifices and I don't believe a benevolent God would ask me to do it so up to a point, I would listen. Then I would start doubting the absolute proof that it was actually God.

    Not any more than I would to anyone that I would speak with, who makes sense and who I could respect. Doesn't matter how powerful God is; power does not bestow righteousness. Might alone never makes right. You talk with believers, and ultimately for them it's always about the argument of God's Power (you do what he says or you'll get a whuppin'!) instead of the power of God's arguments (If you want a (lame) example of those, read the Book of Job).

    As long as I could be sure I wasn't hallucinating.
