Must people believe in a supreme being or certain religious precepts? Is there one, legitimate form of belief?
There is probably a "legitimate" form of belief. What that is, though, who knows? How can we possible know who's beliefs are correct?
Thank you for answering. You are scientifically & analytical unbiased in your answer. I contend that this post will become heated down the line. There will be those who strongly contend that there is one legitimate God & belief system & those who disagree. In the past, religious forums were bones of contentions w/protagonists & antagonists arguing incessantly. Again, thank you for starting the discussion.
We believe in God alone. The God of Jacob, King David and all Christians.
I am weary of trying to prove that which does apparently does not exist. There is no evidence. We use the senses to find God, when God is spirit. How can you find evidence of his spirit? I see evidence everywhere. EVERYWHERE!
But thats just me.
When we lived in our limitted place, we worshipped particular gods and goddesses , and followed our own certain beliefs. Now technologies have made us closer to each other, and have broken all boundaries. Now is the time to take stock of the vast pool before us, give attention to the belief systems of the entire world, and devise an international belief system, establish interrnational worship places , and begin embracing the essence of all religions. In the current scenerio, all religions and all saints and prophets belong to the whole world. Belief , thus, has to be seen in a new perspective.

I believe this to be true, however doesnt the person objecting to the claim also share some burden? afterall, can a profitable and fruitful conversation actually take place if only 1 person shares why they believe what they do?...

Is it possible for you to "believe in" god, even though you know that god does not actually exist, except in your mind?

For contemporary man, religious faith pertains in many respects to the sphere of childish emotion and irrationality. For the man without faith, religion exists because it takes advantage of the fear inherent to human nature before what is unknown. In this perspective, man only believes in what he...

It is quite understandable for the rationals to pity the believers for their purported ignorance and obstinate adherence to their religious beliefs. They think they know the truth which may well be the case. What I do not understand is the way they put down the believers as though they were some...

Atheists, do you despise Jesus or just religions (in general) that worship God?Such God worshiping religions would include Judaism and Islam. Also, did something happen to you to make you angry about "God" or is this just a scientific decision you made in college?? Many atheists demand...
