    Higher force, or God?

    Do you believe in God, as it Holly Bible tells about it, or you believe in some "higher force" but in other form, or you don't believe in "those kind of things" at all?

    My simple answer is I believe in God as revealed in the Bible.

    I believe in Jehovah God as stated in the Holy Scriptures. What about you?

      I do believe in something higher, but I don't think of it; personally as something that's and on a way that's described in Bible. I don't believe that Holly Jesus died, and returned onto this World in "other dimension"...?

    I don't believe in any of the 4,000 ish Gods, but I find the Greek Gods the most unique and interesting out of them. However,  I relate most to the Jewish belief of God.

      Greeks, our orthodox brothers. I'm from Serbia, so that's why I say. smile Yes, indeed. The Zeus, Poseidon, and other interesting myths and stories... But, they believed in Gods as, science would say, in natural disasters or happenings. Major force?

    I know there is a higher force. It's intelligent, loving and generous. Some call it God.

    The Bible was written in code by Kabbalists. That code is now available, for the first time, to the general public. Why? Because this era is ripe with Ego and the perfect time for satisfying the burning need that "things" cannot fulfill.

    I believe in the ultimate Creator, Who has created all life and all things, including time, dimension(s) and spirit. I also believe we perceive the Creator in what forms we are able to perceive and identify with (gods, deities, avatars and the like). Even receptive non-religious persons, I feel, are able to perceive the Creator in the workings of the universe, as was the case of Albert Einstein. Most  "Holy" books, I feel, are tools written by men to explain the Creator, though some individuals in history have deliberately pretended to speak or write for a "god" just in order to exert control over others.

    Hi lafamillia! Is that a Godfather reference?

    Anyway, have you ever seen the movie, "Mission to Mars," with Don Cheadle and Gary Sinise and company? They finally reach Mars and a Martian gives them what is essentially a PowerPoint presentation in which he explains that 'Martians' 'seeded the Earth,' giving rise to the innumerable life-forms, including ourselves, that arose from the Sea.

    I guess I would say that I regard human life as an ongoing investigation of: WHY ARE WE HERE?! I am just curious and I sometimes love to imagine a range of fascinating half-answers that might come to our distant descendants.

    You know, even if we found out something went down roughly way we saw it in that movie, for me, the investigation still wouldn't be complete: WHERE DID THE MARTIANS COME FROM?! 
    And the investigation starts all over again.

    Take it easy!
