People Imagine What They'd Most Like To Argue About With God

Life is one big mystery. There is so much we don't know beyond the sand grains-worth of knowledge available on Wikipedia.

Why are we here? Why do some people have all the luck and others don't? Why are our loved ones taken from us too soon?

There is no being or entity that is more omniscient than God, and believers probably have a bone to pick with them were they have a chance encounter.

Playing on this scenario, Redditor AVR350 asked:

"Imagine you met God, what would you argue about with him?"

Are we alone in the universe?

The Burning Question

"Who else is out there?"

– JohnnyBuddhist

The Response

“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”

– ChronoLegion2

Who Is God?

"Depends on how you decide what god means. If god is simply the one who create us, then yes. Could just end up being an advanced alien species as well. If god is supposed to be capital God, then he’s supposed to be omnipotent and by definition the most powerful."

– germane-corsair

Inquisitive believers sparked valid discussions.

Our Mortality

"Why kids get cancer"

– Kitchen-Shock-597

The Origin Of Us

"Why did he create us in the first place? Was he bored or what?"

– juankruh1250

A Harsh Outcome

"Why you made it so unclear, yet the punishment so bad?"

– omarelnour

What We All Strive For

"That’s the thing. To my knowledge the 'punishment' isn’t in the Bible, at least the Old Testament. Read a lot of it growing up being forced into a catholic school and I don’t ever recall a specific description of hell. In fact, what we know of hell today is primarily taken from Dante’s Inferno."

"Assuming there is a god, of which I am heavily doubtful, whatever teachings there were have been so tainted by human hands and greed that none of it really matters anymore."

"My philosophy has always been to be good, be kind, be helpful and respect nature. That’s the best we can do."

– fusrohdave

The Followers

"Why do so many corrupt people worship you? Why are your believers so effin rude?"

– Silent-Moose-72

Some questions weren't as deep.

"Why the hell he never closes the door to my room, it's always just a bit open and he pretends like he doesn't know what I'm talking about."

– JesusChrist_Himself

We Need Support

"I've got some real issues with the design of the lower back. What were you thinking?"

– ThunderJenkins

The Purpose Of It All

"Why the F'K do you need all those foreskins? No, really? Are you making shoes?"

– SelfChokingChicken

Whether you believe in God or not, many of us are looking to unlock many of life's mysteries. And chances are, we will continue being left in the dark.

So, instead of searching desperately for some answers, the best we can do to maximize our time on this planet is by doing what we know works–being the best version of ourselves and being kind to others.

Because the one thing we know for certain is, we're not here forever.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
