Some are and some are not.
A lot of religious people hate this world and are just waiting for the next. Not a good way to happiness now.
I am with you. I prefer happiness now.

Read below for the prerequisites of features this god must have before recommending me an imaginary friend/god/whatever you guys want to call it.
God is omnipresent or everywhere at all times.
God is ok with you not acknowledging it's prescience at anytime.

God is spirit and really has no form. The presence will always be there for you though and never leaves so in any situation it fits the bill, he, she, big burly, hot........God is there.

Don't think of heaven as being future. Think of heaven as being in the now, as part of life now. Metaphysical. Again always present. So in this heaven, what you are looking at is what you get. Make the best of it.

The only rule is love. Love while you do all things.
Are you filled with hate for something? God is there to help you heal yourself. Hate only hurts the hater, that is why it is to be overcome in your life.

You got me on that one. I don't think God has any pets but apparently has supplied us with any pet of our choosing.

We can even maybe find ways to make a good amount of money off this, and of course since it's a religion, we'll be able to hide behind that "churches aren't taxed" stuff. Let the ideas begin!

PS - and NO flying spaghetti monster!
Your religion is your own. God does not care what you call it. Thought I'd take a shot at this one. Fun thread.
