If you don't believe in God, or a creator then what do you believe in?
Many people claim to be atheist, but that only means they don't believe in a god who created all things, but if so what do you actually believe in.
*Purpose of this question is to inspire the writing of hubs as answers, and if your answer is going to be more than two short sentences, please use the write a hub on it, the link is below in the comment area to do so. You can also try answering the question twice, which leads you too the option as well.
One doesn't have to believe in anything. The abscence of blind faith doesn't leave a void in my life; it isn't neccessary for me to believe in, or concern myself, with creation.
I'll throw my opinion out there on this subject. I hold an Associates degree in divinity which means I know enough to get me in a little trouble, but not enough to save the planet. (laughing) . Here's my take ..
I think that everybody believes in God. Now, stay with me for a minute. There are about 10% of the people who don't agree with the rest of us on who God really is. See, if the God of creation doesn't exist, then people become their own God. The number on atheist reads nine, sometimes 10% depending on your source. That figure isn't actually correct though, because when you talk to those people and dig in, you find that about half a are actually agnostic. Way off subject, sorry ..
People by nature don't do a very good job of managing things, so it's sad to say that some people have to rely on themselves as God. It also strips life of any meaning which sucks also.
Great Question, I believe that if you believe in yourself and others then you also believe in something greater. As long as we've been around people have been worshipping something.
My response to a question of what I believe in, if I don't believe in a god, and what atheist means to me. read more
Here's my hub I made in response. My mind's a bit elsewhere, so I had some difficulties getting down what I was trying to say without sounding like a "hater", so hopefully it makes sense!
I believe in the Pure Energy of the universe. The Pure Energy which exists outside of time and space and which my life force came from before it manifested in this reality as a Time Bubble.
I am not an atheist, I am an agnostic.. But I will still consider myself more of a non-believer for my own reasons (though I have no qualms with god or religious people). My answer to the question is simple. If I don't believe in god, I believe in myself. If it is true that god created everyone in his image, then it must also be true that he made us powerful enough to become him. Of course, we just need to realize our own true power, that's all.
I would say I believe in the big bang theory, and that we're just a stage in the evolution of everything in the world. I believe that Science has the answers I want, and I can wait until I get them.

What is the best way to explain the existence of God to an atheist?I've heard people try to convince atheists that there is a God by quoting the Bible or some other holy book. But quoting from such materials won't work. You have to believe in them before you can accept them as plausible...

How do we go about answering the question about “who Christ really is for us today”?
by stoneyy 7 years ago
I'm doing my best to come up with a neutral way of phrasing a question.The question is; How would you be affected if God indicated there would be no Eternal Life? Neither Heaven nor Hell and such would apply to all who are alive at the point of the policy change. Your thoughts please.

Does anyone have any evidence for the existence of God?I am an atheist, which to me only means that I haven't been shown requisite evidence to convince me of an omnipotent, all-knowing deity of any kind. If you would, please bring forth this evidence and deliver me from a fiery...

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?
