Is the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? posted 17 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionIs the idea of a "god" inherent in our minds? by Grantaire, Moderator

(note that I'm not saying "belief in a god", but rather just the idea, the concept)

Religions of all sorts exist around the world, and usual a central tenet is belief in a god (or multiple gods). Even if a person is agnostic or athiest, the concept of a god is still in their head.

If we were raised away from any religious influences, would we still come to find the concept of 'god'?

I'm probably not explaining very well what I mean, but you probably get the gist of it <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> My thoughts on the matter are very jumbled. view post
