aye it is...

we have singular power over our own destinies.

Im not denying that there is a god, im just saying that we have the ultimate power, the power whether or not to believe he exists...

and thus making him exist, or not, at our own will. after all, existence can also be a matter of relativity.

i guess we'll never know before we die right? or simply never.

"Schroedingers Cat" is a quantumtheory that basically states that if you have a cat in a closed box that the cat is both dead and alive at the same time and that we directly influence what state the cat is in by opening the box.

Basically that the observer changes what state the observed object is in... its more complicated than that, but thats the gist of it..

Interesting... I'm not familiar with quantum physics, but I guess I get the general idea.

But what I meant does concern the observer, or in this case the believer, in how the existence of an object or a being depends on oneself, in an idealistic point of view. So, God exists if you believe in him, but he doesn't for somebody who does not belief.
Of course, each one has his or her own definition of reality, dependent on its interaction with the observer, completely independent, or somewhere in between those two extremes.

It just reminded me of our last philosophy lesson, we were talking about realism and idealism and the definition of reality. and of course, we ended talking about the matrix o.0

So would that make god's creations (us) solely responsible for his own existance?

Say God exists ( I believe so )... and the entire world stops believeing in him... does he cease to exist solely because his creations stopped believing?

Say I started to beleive there was a peanut butter god that make the stuff stick to the roof of your mouth everytime you eat it, does that belief in turn make the PB god exist?

I know that sounds silly, but Its at least something to ponder...
