I was talking to one of my friends about religion, and she talked about a very interesting idea.
Instead of not believing in God, you create your own personal God. For one person their God might be benevolent and helpful, for another a harsh taskmaster, it all depends on the person.
The positive effect is that there would be no religious quarrels, discrimination, and all.
But there are a few downsides as well, like a psychopath whose God wants all left-handed people to be killed.
If we had a society without religion, with only individual Gods, what would it possibly be like?
Edit: What I mean is that suddenly everyone forgets religion and starts believing in personal Gods. I'm ignoring why or how that happened, but this scenario raises question like if mass religion could be revived, if people would agree to believing other people's Gods without those Gods having the support of preestablished structure and support.
