What if Jah came and told everyone i'm not really God I'm just a super being who was the one who created you, and I exacted worship for that reason, but i'm an alien not God. Would you still be theist or a believer? This is all hypothetical and I have serious doubt this will ever happen, but what if it did?
P.S. I don't believe god is an alien this is all hypothetical, do not take what I say in this post as literal

Not if humans did it, without supernatural assistance.
@s1fizik: Question still remains, who created the super being alien.
No one created him, he has NO BEGINNING in anything!!!!! Jesus apparently has a beginning though(Revelation 3:14)

Scientific advancement has a lot to do with it too. Throughout history man has turned to religion to answer the unanaswerable. Look at Roman and Greek mythology--one of the factors in my road to atheism--they believed in their Gods just as strongly as people believe in their own God now. But we laugh at some of the things they believed because we know better now. Science has given us reasons for why the weather and seasons change.
I don't struggle with questions like 'why I am here', 'what's my purpose in life' and so I don't need something/someone else to fill that void. From time to time I do like to think about my grandparents somewhere watching over me but I also realize it's something I'm thinking just to make myself feel better at the time. Happy thoughts bring happy chemicals (oxytocin, etc.). Probably why the belief in God seems to come back in prisons, foxholes, and at deathbeds.
The true definition of atheism does not include putting other people's religious beliefs down or trying to change the world and that's why atheists have a bad rap. There are too many rude atheists. I respect others' beliefs and have no reason to put them down and I expect the same from others. I was upset that the Pledge was changed because I'm a traditionalist. I think anything that is illegal because the Bible says it is a sin is unconstitutional. Any elected representative that cannot separate what's good for the country from what the Bible says has no business in office. They are elected to do what's best for America and sometimes that is contrary to the Bible's teachings.
But that's a whole nother debate. lol. Thanks for reading, sorry it was so long, hope it answered your question.
