    No matter if you believe in a God or not, if you could ask him any question, what would it be?
    I'll not post any comments of my own but just curious where this goes.

    I'd ask him how much time we have left on Earth and what we should do to prepare

    I think the way we have to "ask God questions" is to use our inquisitive minds in the manifest world (You might say 'revealed'.) My primary question is: What is the good, and how can I best exemplify it?

    I can't answer this question without knowing the nature of the god we are talking about.

    Because what I might ask the god of the bible may very well be different from what I might
    ask Zeus, or Aphrodite, or the FSM.

    Also the pragmatist in me would like to know if there would be any repercussions for asking
    my question, if the god in question is likely to throw me into some variant of hell if I ask
    something that offends them then that would have an effect on what, if anything, I would ask.

    Given no repercussions, if faced with the god of the bible, I might well ask something like
    "how the hell did you screw up this badly, your a god for F' sake..."

    But it really does depend on context, this question probably appears much simpler if you only believe
    in, or consider, one god concept.

    I am sorry if this answer is unsatisfactory, but I am trying not to be flippant and take it seriously.
    And if I really had the option to ask a god a question then the nature of that god would definitely
    impact the question I would ask.

    Assuming its THE god who got everything started my first question would be "Where did you come from". Secondly; where do all my odd socks go?

    Sorry but I have to respond to this. It wasn't 10 seconds after I read this, my wife if folding clothes and yelled out "where is my other sock at"? Lol, awesome timing!

    If God really existed and I got to ask him a question, I would ask him why he would allow people to kill in his name and call it right. How many wars over the centuries have started over religion?

    I would also ask him why he allows RJ to post on this site 😛

    Would there be repercussions, and would he be required to answer? Can I ask for the winning numbers for a million dollar lottery?
    What about complete design plans for a nuclear fusion plant?

    I will ask as a poet has already asked :-
    God, what made you create Man,
    and then give him feelings,
    and then Love for each other,
    and then sadness and disappointment ?
    and then what kind of Godliness is that,
    which makes you sit back and watch the Tamasha ?
    (Tamasha is another word for drama or farce)
    Or as another poet has asked :-
    God, why are again and again playing with mud ?
    God why do you like broken toys so much ?

    Actually the second quote is from a great song written by the unforgettable poet Shailendra and sung by our great singer Lata Mangeshkar in her ethereal voice. It is a song sung by a young woman , disappointed in Love and complaining to God. Every time I hear it , tears come to my eyes. I hope our computer jocks and logic maniacs will someday listen to it, because even though it fits into their ' anti-God " thinking it is the complaint of a young believer in God from whom she , perhaps, expects some justice.
