We are very sorry for not having all the answers in the universe made readily available for you, it takes time to understand the world around us since we can't seem to find any evidence that an invisible and undetectable super being waved his magic hand and created everything.
Or, was that the answer you were actually looking for?
Atheists are not sure that whether god exists or not.Atheists believe that God does not exist-so they believe in some idea only.The same is true for believers as well-they only believe that god exists. What is common between atheists and believers is that they both believe in something
No, that is not true. We can easily observe most atheists here know a lot more about scriptures than the believers. Often, it is because some atheists here were believers and decided to actually read their own tenets of their religion, and were horrified to see what was actually printed there.
I'm not asking in order to pick a fight. I'm just curious as to why anyone can declare with absolute certainty that there is a God or that there is none. Isn't the spectacular part of life not knowing everything?
Well I do believe there is a God, but I'm not subscribing to any set of religious beliefs. It's not like organized religion is a bad thing, but to truly embrace your individuality you need to rigorously think about what you actually believe versus what you've been told. If you've read The Language of God by Francis Collins you basically know why I believe in God... although not religion.
So what you are saying is, is that if WE, humans, the greatest and smartest creature in the universe, cannot come up with the answers to everything within two or three thousand years or so after inventing IRON, then OBVIOUSLY there is a magical being in the universe.
I for one think that is an incredibly conceited and self-aggrandized view of humanity. "If I can't figure it out, there has to be a God! Only a God can be smarter than ME!"
You rely on a number of nerve impulses providing information to you brain, what if they are not providing real information and all that you perceive does not exist at all, in fact you are alone and there is nothing out there, your brain is providing you with stimulus to maintain itself..
Everything exists because it has been created by the Creator-God Allah YHWH; when He commanded to the Universe and the life in it with the words "To be"; everything started evolving and taking shape as designed by the Creator; it will come to an end with a Word from him "not to be", and then everything would vanish.
I can understand the positives of putting your faith in such and such religion, which is why I do not think religion as a whole should be completely eradicated, however in this day and age I honestly wouldn't mind if it...
I am a Christian.I have this idea that if atheists and Christians will from both sides propose propositions and work to come to agreement on them, then they might come to agree on the big proposition that God exists.So,...

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can...
