RE: WHY DO HUMANS THINK THEY NEED TO BELIEVE GOD EXISTS?
The old god of the gaps thing -

If there is any void in your life - insert a god.

If there is an unanswered question - insert a god.

If permission is lacking - insert a god.

If guidance is missing - insert a god.

If the situation is hopeless - insert a god.

Etc. ad infinitum. God is a very versatile tool to explain and justify anything.

RE: WHY DO HUMANS THINK THEY NEED TO BELIEVE GOD EXISTS?
It truly is a shame that people can not see the importance of doing what is right without a god being involved. Why do you need to believe in a god in order for you to do something like giving food to a hungry person, or helping an injured person to get medical care, or even something as simple as offering a friendly ear to listen to a person's problems and offer some comforting words or helpful advice? Where, in any of this, does a god have to be a necessity? Huh

How do you know God is perfect - I'm not going to get into the question of God's existence because you've shown idiocy on that front in other threads...

RE: WHY DO HUMANS THINK THEY NEED TO BELIEVE GOD EXISTS?
What's necessary? I mean really, what about reality is actually necessary even if a god exists. You show me why anything is absolutely necessary for anything and I'll start listening to what you're saying.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
