If there were no God
#11
Since nothing would exist if there were no God--and since you are looking for a more complex answer--let's modify your question. 

Let's not ask "What if God did not exist." 

Let's ask: "What if God decided to pack up and leave the Cosmos as we know it.  This includes the present cluster of dimensions, our known universe, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory--all of it.  Let's say God removed himself into a completely and utterly new cosmos leaving us all to be by ourselves."

Well then, things get a bit more interesting.  With an abscence of God's Holy Presence (even though we would have had it before), we would witness the rapid deterioration of everything polite, to put it mildly.

If there were no God then we'd be wasting our time with this morality business.

It would be hell. Literally.

However, I think the world relies on God's protection. A single demon could destroy all matter and energy in this universe with a single will if God did not restrict them.

If there were no God there would be no one to ask the question, thus it is meaningless.

If there were no one to ask the question, would chickens exist?

(The answer is "no")

But if there were no God, there would be no demons.

How would there be us then?

It was for the absence of God's presence, not the nonexistence of He Who Is.
