Why do you, personally, choose to believe or NOT believe in the existence of a God?
Something created all this stuff. It's mathematically and physically impossible for self-replicating order and complexity to spontaneously generate.
I have always wanted to know where the name God came from? and how people ever knew he existed.
Theirs just to much beauty in the world we live in, someone created it all because there just so much around us, just a shame that all the bad comes from the human hand
I read a book by James Michener called "The Source". It explains a lot about religion.
Because of physics, I know that matter cannot be created or destroyed. If there is nothing to create a world FROM, then it cannot be created. Therefore all matter exists, has always existed, and will always exist. There is no way to destroy matter either. Where would it go? ALL matter simply changes forms.
As for a God that arranged all of the matter into planets, stars, and life, I think that is just something man created in his mind to explain things he could not understand.
Where is this God? Where did God come from?
The addition of God to a monkey (us) creates a monkey that kills, others of its kind and its own kind.
God is such a convenient shibboleth that those in authoriy can use to threaten the rest of us. The only reason that God is crumbling is that we are educated and can read. Something the catholic church for example has historically opposed.
Jesus said "love God and love one another". This seeks to pick up the evil God-gene and use it for good. But Jesus had nothing to do with God. Jesus was a radical Jewish rabbi crucified by the Romans who believed (wrongly) that the apocalypse was at hand
I personally choose to believe in the existence of God..because..He is the only thing that makes sense to me..in this world we live in..I did not choose him because he forced me to..It was my choice..Also when my back has been against the wall as it has been in many situations..I called on Him and he has always been there for me.. when everyone else eithier could or could not help he always has..and has been the only thing I could ever count on. I say he because I believe "He" is my heavenly father..This is my belief
because he doesn't exist. it's not really that hard to understand. man needed a way to control the masses so we came up with religion and used it to attempt to make everyone fall into a certain way of life. we've worshipped some kind of god for a long time and some will continue to no matter what facts are given to them.
I don't have either or I am agnostic I simply believe there is no way to know and do not deny or say there is one.
God? He? Him? How do we know it is not Goddess, Her, and She?
Jesus Christ was a male, that's why God is a he, and came into the world as a male.
God is existence itself, all things exist because there is God. The only proof there is God, is because we see what he caused to exist. Doubting God would be doubting your own existence.
I think it is a personal matter of each of us the belief in a God.
The question is whether this faith makes us feel complete as people or not.
I have my own will. Not the will in my head but the will that stems form my belly. Qi-energy, pure energy or Intent. This is the force that guides me.
My fundamentals are that we are energetic beings with awareness and perception. And that's where I go from. I enhance my awareness as much as I can and live with my death besides me for that is the only true advisor there is.
I don't need a God or a description on how to live my life.
I strongly believe in THE DEVINE, or as I personally call it: ALL-THAT-IS, because of the wondering and awe which arises out of my own presence.
But i prevent myself from projecting that feeling into a limited concept which lives outside of me.
Instead, I try to live a life wherein I give as much possible room for THE DEVINE to express itself through me, by opening up my heart and surrendering complete to it.
This has a marvelous transforming effect on myself and the world I live in.
I feel constantly guided towards places and people where I apparently have to be.
I can witness that this is indeed a very fullfilling experience!

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.

Why would god create atheists who can't be convinced of his existence?

Everything in this entire world was created by something. No matter what belief you hold it seems the world is created. For those of you who believe in the big bang or the theological god said let there be light. Creating stars and planets, moons and galaxies. Over billions of years the process...

Atheists, can you make an argument for god's existence?They say that, in order to understand both sides of an issue, you must know enough that you could argue for the other side. It's a common practice in speech/debate classes. So this question is for atheists; can you make a convincing argument...

This famous quote originated from a French singer/composer/musician called Serge Gainsbourg corresponds to my idea of God. Any thoughts as for the rightfulness of his quote?
