If you met God, would you debate him over his existence?

Maybe it's just a hallucination.

Yes, and I imagine it would sound a little like this .

You don't exist! Yes I do. No you don't.
Side: Yes

Yeah, and when I'm done I'd take another hit of the DMT I just smoked

Side: Yes

Shooting up DMT is better, in my opinion. Just like taking MDMA rectally is best.

I agree.

LSD is best smoked. It's paper so it burns well. Same with shrooms. Those crackle when you smoke them, so you know it's working. Also severe brain damage. =D

Absolutely. I'll quote Bruce Almighty for this :)

Bruce: God, can I ask you a question?

God: Yes! That is the miracle/beauty of free will! (Something like that i think)

I doubt God would circumvent his own laws just to impose his supremacy over man kind(God is kinda like an closed being in this case). The no debate argument suggests that we're being screwed over by a Mad God, if not the Devil.

I have heard from many scholars that if you are under the impression you are seeing a miracle, it is far more likely you are having a hallucination than that the laws of nature have been suspended in your favor.

That being said, I am very familiar with what it is like to hallucinate. I've hallucinated a lot of things, enough so that I'm getting pretty good at calling out what's real and what's in my head. I think I would be able to tell if god was just a hallucination and not actually god. There's no way of knowing, but just based on past experience, that's what I'd guess.

Either way, I wouldn't debate him over his existence. At that point, his existence is pretty clear. I would debate him over his moral merit and superiority. I would ask why I should follow a heartless bastard like himself, other than to avoid frying for eternity.

This is why monotheistic religious people really do have their work cut out for them when it comes to convincing me of the truth of their religion. They have to assert and prove an intelligent creator; from there, they have to show that this intelligent creator is specifically the one described in their religion as opposed to all the other religions; and then, they have to persuade me that this god is actually one worth following. Your argument assumes the first two points, so there's no point in debating existence; it's straight onto "why would I worship a tyrannical asshole like the god of the Bible?

Side: No

why would I worship a tyrannical asshole like the god of the Bible?

Because you can't do any better ;)

Side: No

I could do wayyy better, joe. So could you. I'm sure you could think of something more worthy of worship than some Zeus-wannabe hiding out somewhere in Cloud Kingdom.

Like boobs. Or stamp-collecting.

No, but I'd definitely want to get to the bottom of a few things. Like what his "plan" really consists of, and why to fulfill that plan he needs countless innocent people to die. Like why he needs to judge people based on their personal choices that don't affect him. And also, why he is so full of a petty human emotion like jealousy, thus persecuting all people who believe in (a) different god(s), ways of thinking etc.

I would not debate it about if it is existing, because I'm assuming if I met it/him, I would know for certain that it in fact exists, as opposed to me having faith it exists without seeing it physically yet feeling it through experience. I would probably ask it a ton of questions, such as "Why did you make it complicated for us to believe in you?", or "Are there others like you, or are you the only one, forever?", or "Will you be staying for good or do you have other plans?", or "Have there been another universe before this one that which you were the god everyone was talking about?", questions like these intrigue me.

If you are arguing with a hallucination, you are arguing with yourself.

All hallucinations and dreams are versions of yourself.

That out of the way, it would be pointless to debate with God on his existence. Clearly that is settled... he exists.

Instead, I would ask him many questions on the nature of his and my existence. I would just have so many things I would want to know. No point in debating the creator of everything. I'd rather just learn from him.

To physically meet God, one would likely be delusional. The argue with a delusion would be an exercise in futility.
