    Do you believe in God?

    Most of the population in the world are superstitious and optimistic in their distinctive point of views.It adds feathers to the wings of belief that most of the people are driven by.Likewise you can say if any natural calamity takes place,then people blame god for this or tends to frame up an idea that may be there is some serious battle going on between god's in heaven.You can also take an example from real life,whenever we fail to do something or something bad is happening with us then our instincts grasps an idea that God is not kind to me,god must have done this.

    Yes, I believe in God and I think that you are correct in your thinking that most people tend to blame God for things.  I guess we just don't always know His purpose and if people's faith is weak than they automatically will think that God isn't kind to them.

      Great depth thinking and understanding.God is everywhere,god is in our faith,god is in will,god is in our positive thinking,god is the energy that guides us through the thick and thorn phase of life.

    I believe in God and I believe that he always loves us and always is kind. He always does what's best for us even though we might not like it at the moment.

      Yes because in the end everything will be sorted out.

      What a surprise for those non believers when the end comes. I'm ready for that happy day we'll go home. See you there Snowman.

    Yes, I do believe in God, but I don't blame Him for bad things that happen on earth. I believe that those who don't believe in God will be given every chance and hope they will believe in Him too.

    Free will explains a lot of this. God does not provide the perfect life, then what would be the purpose of the God plan for us. No one would have to choose for themselves. Sometimes a wake up call to restore faith is needed.We get too comfortable, and aren't moving forward with his work, it's not all about us, it's about everyone.

    To combat all of these believers, I do not believe in a god of any kind. I believe Man created God in his image to help explain the unexplainable. We are all made of energy; the elements of the stars. We are of the same energy, and when we put good energy into the world, it attracts good energy. Call it "Karma" if you wish, but I cannot sit here and say that "God does the best for me" because that is simply not true. If there was a god looking out for everyone, then he would not let little girls get molested, he would feed the starving, and take down corporatism. To say it is all "free will" or "God's will" is ridiculous. A true, loving god would not let these things happen, regardless of so called "free will." I doubt those little girls and starving children chose to be abused.

    Also, I will not be pacified with an empty promise of a heaven that I will not even get to enjoy until my one and only life is over. We get one chance to make a difference, and we can do it without fearing a god or the devil.

    The universe exists, therefore He IS.

    I don't believe in God. I know God exists. Big difference -- the kind of difference that distinguishes the ability to walk on water and the tendency to sink like a stone.

    Blame is an ego thing. Being at one with God is to be loving and entirely responsible -- never blaming, and never being self-concerned.

    I do believe in a force or a spirit like a guardian, but not as a physical person of a He or a She.  This energy helps us to make up the experiences that we want to have and learn or have fun with in this physical body.  It does not care that we go by a set of laws as in a book.  It only gives us consequences to our thoughts and action so that we may learn those consequences with our choices.  There are no good ones and there are no bad ones according to someone else's views.  It is all within us and all abut our own learning through others and vice versa.  We are all part of one.  We all come here to experience.  When we are not in the body (and we choose that and our relations and what we are come to learn) we can see and hear, but we cannot experience the things that only the body can, such as taste, touch and emotions.  That is why we come here.  This "God" as some say is not this overbearing ruling, controlling "individual" that others can only comprehend it to be according to doctrine or dogma.  The only true God is ourselves.  The Universe or the "God" of a book that is not complete, is something that is outside of ourselves and many use that to control us.  Get out of the Church and truly know and understand what we create and begin to understand that it is us who are to blame for our thoughts and what we create and what we want to experience.

    Nope. Every 'God' ever was invented by man to explain what was at the time unexplainable. But through the scientific method, nearly every one of those issues has been explained and, although, this one hasn't been "proven" there has been enough evidence to make a completely informed decision toward the contrary. No. There is no god.
