I always thought that this was a strange question to ponder
From a logical standpoint one would have to deduce it down to this “I think”.
Either God Exists or doesn’t, God is either a cognitive or more of a God source formula that makes the universe progress in a positive growing forward manner.
I think that originally The statement must have been a sarcastic statement regarding Jesus death. He was assumed by man to be God, because he said “if you’ve seen me you’ve seen the father”.
I don’t believe it’s possible for god if God or God source exists to be dead.
Do you think this is an ignorant question that spreads around our society or do you have another view point?
