RE: Would you accept God if he showed everyone he existed
That's a very odd question, especially since the god of the bible clearly does not exist. It's like asking if Merlin came to my party and demonstrated himself would I accept him. The only difference is that Merlin's stories are more consistent.

How is he going to show that he exists? For me, making it rain in a taxicab is not going to do it.

That's really the crux, isn't it?

I think many, even most people assume they'd recognize a god on sight, but if they ever actually encountered what they imagine that god is, "god" is the last thing they'd think they're seeing. How many times a day does "Jesus Christ" himself make his appearance in Times Square - and not get dismissed as an impostor?

Yes
And I heard as it were
the noise of thunder,
one of the 4 beasts saying come and see
And I saw and behold,
a white horse





And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold,
a pale horse
and its name that sat on him was death
And Hell followed with him.

....

Big Grin

The most badass character in the Bible, with the most badass introduction in the story.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

This.

Acknowledging that he exists is enough.
If it was indeed the god of the bible, I'd have a very hard time accepting him. I'd probably have to face hell or something (because we'd have to figure out which denomination is right too) and maybe I'd try to cheat my way in, which would be futile since god could tell, but then again, that means that almost every single person would go to hell, so that would be a relief.
