I do assert that your relationship with God is truly important, but your relationship with Him is between you and Him.

I’m not sure how popular this opinion will be here, but I assert that having no relationship with God or any god whatsoever is completely healthy and ultimately would make most people better off.

That would be healthy if there was no God, but there is.

You can tell yourself that all you want, but there’s no way to know that there’s a god

Yes there is. I’ve had personal experiences that prove it beyond the shadow of the remotest possible doubt. I just can’t reproduce those experiences in a controlled environment with verifiable scientific data to corroborate conclusions drawn from them.

Here’s the problem with that. Just because you had a powerful experience doesn’t mean that it’s god. I’ve had experiences with ghosts. I mentioned it on this forum a few times. I’ve heard ghostly sounds, I’ve seen ghostly apparitions, and I’ve felt demonic presences. I sometimes, depending on the day, feel like those were real spiritual experiences, but I at least can acknowledge that it could have been (and probably was) just an uncomfortable and startling situation where those feelings or sensations were caused by something else. I doubt very seriously that anyone, including you, would find a statement from me saying “Ghosts are real, I’ve had experiences that prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt, I just can’t reproduce those experiences . . .” to be all that compelling. So, I’d appreciate not being expected to think of your personal experiences as objective fact for everyone to take seriously.
