"If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him" nghĩa là gì?


"If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him" = nếu không có Chúa thì sẽ rất cần người nghĩ ra Chúa đấy -> nghĩa là con người cần phải tin vào thần thánh, cần phải có đức tin; quan điểm này bắt nguồn từ triết gia người Pháp Voltaire vào thế kỉ 18. 

Ví dụ
French philosopher Voltaire famously quipped (châm biếm): “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.” Something similar can be said of modern monetary (tiền tệ) theory, also known as MMT, because it may be the economy’s only hope to get through the pandemic.

Ever since Voltaire made his famous observation that "If God did not exist it would be necessary to invent Him", others have been applying the idea to mere mortals (người phàm).

The series has been able to offer some answers to big questions regarding God through the three seasons. There’s one question that makes Freeman ponder (suy nghĩ) more than others. In regards to Voltaire’s statement that “if God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him,” Freeman pauses for a few moments and with a puzzled look rhetorically asks the question a different way.

When Voltaire suggested that “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him,” he was not denying (từ chối) the existence of God. Or, as some of his followers have argued, cynically (bất nhẫn) putting down religion.
