    The universe exists, therefore He IS.

    Stephen Hawking said that gravity could've created the universe, but his reasoning is faulty, because gravity itself requires the existence of the universe before it can exist (space, time, energy).

    Some atheists ask, "Who created God?" which is equally faulty reasoning, because God is pure Source. This kind of flaw is easy to understand, because most humans are so used to thinking in terms of dichotomies, they have no concept for what the Buddhists called "paramita" or "perfection" -- the one-sided "coin" or "one hand clapping."

    God is pure love without any of its opposite, ego (self-concern), and thus has no limitations.

    When Peter stepped out of his boat onto the unsettled Sea of Galilee, he had that perfection of confidence called "Faith" which does not have its apparent opposite (doubt) embedded within it, like so many human attitudes, such as "belief."

      Let's see:  I world renown physicist has faulty logic, but ancient ignorant dubious authors hit the nail right on the head.  Thanks for clearing that up.

    All you can ever know is your being. Some call that being, God. Anything else is imagination, concepts and suggestion.

    God is a very large word, that occupies all religion, It doesn't have to be Christians, it can be Muslims, Indians, Chinese and all races. I believe because I was taught from 5 years old to believe that Jesus is true. Anyway, it did showed that God exist when my prayers were answered.

    Yes, I do believe in God. Without God, there is no human on earth. God created the world, everything on it and all of us human beings. Without God, I am nothing. God saved me from my sins.

    No, what would be the reason for believing in this?
    Even if I thought it were true, I would very much be against this cosmic wizard(s), Assuming it agrees with what is in the bible, It strongly goes against my ideas of morality.

    I don't believe in any of the numerous imagery super beings that have been, obviously, invented by ancient humans. Furthermore, even in the Information Age, there is no evidence for the existence of ANY Gods.  Hence, it makes no sense to assume that primitive humans were privy to some advanced knowledge.

    I do not believe in any deity. There is no evidence that any god has ever existed. As for the christian god (because I am most familiar with that one). We have an all powerful perfect being who creates humans to be faulty. He then blames them for the faults he put in them. This all powerful being requires attention every 7 days, has jealousy issues, and orders his people to commit mass genocide while condoning slavery and rape right after telling them that killing is wrong....Sounds like a bad excuse for an all powerfull, loving creator to me....actually it sounds like some sick people wrote it many years ago. Sorry went on a rant there.

    This is one of the most difficult questions to answer because the word God has so many meaning to different people and cultures.  In America on the money it says "In God we Trust" so I would have to say I do believe in God as an energy that provides.

    God is supposed to be a being that is all knowing, all powerful and everywhere.  In the ancient scriptures God is described as having three features.
    1. God as an energy is all pervading the energy that all galaxies, stars planets, moons etc, are a part of.  It is written that we are all part and parcel of the Supreme Being, like all the living cells make up our body.

    2.  It is also written the God lives in the hearts of all living entities and accompanies the individual soul on the journey of life.  God is the witness of our actions.

    3. The third feature is God can have an individual form as the Surpeme being and enter the cosmos and interact with everyone else like a cosmic avatar.  It is possible that this being as an individual entity could have what we would perceive as unlimted power relative to all others.  The personal name of this particular being would be "God" just like we have a name this being would also have a name. 

    So yeah there is no logical reason that a being called God does not exist.  The question I think is how powerful can one being possibly be? That I have no idea a mind can be unlimted.
