The Book is Named Mister God, This is Anna It trully amazed me how a 5 year old child had the answers to what the scientist cant even figure out. It's so simple but so many make things complex, or make it so much there own opinion. Has Anyone Else Read this Book?

A fiction book amazed you because an imaginary girl had answers? Keeping in mind that 'answers' are not the same as replies. Any reply given in the subject of God is an opinion only, not an answer, since it's doubtful even a fictional 5 year old would have all the accurate 'answers' to a subject that isn't able to be proven.

Its a Inspirational Book, so that makes it fiction, How are you so sure she didnt exsist. When your in search for answers and the only thing that the world can offer you is God doesnt exist. To me it Answers alot of my questions. God is Not an Opinion to me, God is able to be proven, People blind themselves from the Truth and believe in what they want to, to make there lives more comfortable.

Actually Ciniful, the book in question is a nonfiction book. The beauty of the 'answers' provided by Anna lay in thier simplicity. For example in chapter 2 a discussion between Anna and Fynn: "Do you believe in God?" (Fynn) "Yes." (Anna) "Do you know what God is?" "Yes." "What is God then?" "He's God!" "Do you go to church?" "No." "Why not?" "Because I know it all!" "What do you know?" "I know to love Mister God and to love people and cats and dogs and spiders and flowers and trees" -and the catalog went on - "with all of me." Hopefully you can see the truth (answers) in that small conversation. So even the most cynical or athiest can agree with the principles set forth by Anna, even the part about loving Mister God, just insert whatever or whomever you draw inspiration from. Just because some would say that God cannot be proven, remember he cannot be disproven either. The brutal truth is that sometimes it's not truth, it's just brutal. Perhaps this is one time in which someone claiming to have the truth shouldn't be ran from, but rather followed.
