To be sure, to be 100 percent "covered" we could spend our lives praying, worshiping all the various gods that ever are, ever were, and ever will be. And even if we did this 24 hours a day, every day of the week, there would still be no way to pay homage to all of them. Of course, doing this may piss off some rival gods in the process, so there's that to consider as well. We could spend our entire lives praying, trying to please various deities at an exhausting rate, hoping we got it right.

Or we could be secure in knowing we don't know *for sure* and rest in what we do know, which is that there is zero evidence for any of these gods. We can surmise that if we grew up in another time, another place, or another country, our beliefs would be shaped by whatever the cultural religion was in that particular place/time. And we can live our lives fully instead of living our one life at the mercy of deities--of which there is no evidence for.

Honestly I wasn't speaking of a god's existence. Truly I was speaking of my own. There are things I don't know. I was projecting that "unto the masses". I don't ascribe a deity to that which I can't explain.

Got it Wink I assumed you were talking about a deity since you posted in the atheism theism section.

Where else would a deity go ? Poor guy. All alone and no one to "believe" in him.

RE: I don't know.
theists often berate us for admitting we don't know all to often it's something like

You don't know so here's my answer so you have to accept mine because it's a explanation your not allowed to not believe in something (typical dictator think)

or

You reject my explanation but you already proclaim x true typical example of this is when we study a problem by biology questions in light of evolution instead of fairy dust not understanding the fact that all sciences use a paradigm and fairy dust so far has none worth using

pascal wager in a nut shell

god essentially wants a army of cowardly slaves who love it out of a selfish desire not to be punished and avoid said punishment by ideological luck
