God is the most well known person on Earth. He is so famous that name is used as a swear word, no other person has ever had his or her name used as a swear word. Come to think of it, it would be really amusing to hear someone use Abraham Lincoln's name as a swear word. Picture this - A man sitting on a chair, sipping coffee out of a a cup when he accidentally lost his grip on the cup and drops it. Spraying coffee everywhere, he shouts out “Mother Theresa” or maybe “Mahatma Gandhi”! So what if Our Great Captain never existed?
God created all of us. From the trees to the seas, to the animals, God created all of it. We owe God for the life that was given to us by God. To say that man can exist apart from God is to say that a watch can exist without a watchmaker or a flower can start living without a seed. We owe our being to the God in whose image we are made (Genesis 1:27). Our existence depends on God, whether we acknowledge His existence or not. Even those who reject God receive their sustenance from Him, for for Matthew 5:45 [NIV] says, “He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous”.
John 1:4 says that in Christ is life, which is the light of men. Jesus came so that we may have life. All who place their trust in Him are promised eternity with Him. For us to truly live, we must have an intimate relationship with Christ. Yet, without God, we would only have a physical live. There will be no afterlife, because the whole idea of afterlife is to be with God.
Though men that don't believe God may seem happy, the highest level of happiness can only be achieved through God, not to mention that the pleasure these people experience is temporary. Without God, our life would be meaningless. There will be no reason for us to live at all. The only thing that would matter to us if God does not exist would be happiness. But then again, That happiness would be short lived for it would be gone and a bigger yearning that there is more to life than this. Ecclesiastes 1:12-18 says that Solomon discovered that knowledge, by it self, is pointless. He found out that pleasure, materialism is folly, and riches are fleeting. Nothing in this world is worth our time, only God is.
Without God, our destiny is Hell. Man without God is spiritually dead. When his life on earth is over, he will face eternal separation from God. Back to the question, the answer for it is no. Everything in this world points to the existence of an all-powerful God, so it will only be right to give ones praise to Him.
