    We, the believers believe in God.
    But do the non believers believe in Satan?
    Or they are just still searching ?
    Or what?

      Ifsomeone questions the existence of god, why would you think they believe in satan?

        Im just curious
        Non believers question the existence of God,but they do not say in what or whom they believe.
        This is a legitimate question.

      One believes in God or "No God" both are  realities...
      There is no middle gtound.. you believe in one or the other.

      Truth shows you both God and "no god".

      The false shows you neither....nevertheless all false are images of Truth.

      The one who knows Truth, know God and has become Himself.

      Perhaps non believers believe in a world created by natural physical science in the 'Big Bang Theory' when the earth was naturally formed and through evolution, humans and wildlife, earth became what it is today.

      That in itself is still a belief in something: nature and its natural course.

      They are just frustrated and confused.

        I am.neither.

        Why do you feel the need to constantly attack those who don't believe in what you believe?

          It is very natural to believe in the Creator-God; it is just like one believes in one's father and mother; one understands that one is born of them.

          I just express my honest beliefs; I don't attack the atheists. I will appreciate if they confine themselves to reason and rationality; instead they resort to ridicule and derision.

      What god?
      I would hazard to say that I'm sure there are people who believe in satan, just like people believe in UFO and that Sherlock Holmes was a real person?
      I'm positive there are people who continually search for answers to two primary questions - "why am I here?" and "what is my purpose?"

      Those two questions go unanswered during their whole life.
      It's not what. It's a who? The "who" is self. Every human being on the planet is self guiding.

    Why do you believe in something that does not exist?

      The existence of each and every thing begins with the ones believing....and belief is both true and false...

      And both these belief but confirms that particular things existence.

    I believe in myself, I believe in you.  I do not believe in the existence of the fantasies of either God or Satan.  I am always searching for truth; for reality.

    You have chosen to believe in the existence of a magical being(s) based on your desire to believe and little else.  Your post would seem to indicate that you think others search for fantasies that they can then believe true simply because they want it to be true, but relatively fewer people today are that gullible, and the numbers continue to decrease.

    As the human race continues to grow and mature the term "belief" comes to mean something different.  "Belief" is now more based on evidence, observation and logical reasoning than on a desire.  These may all be false and lead to false beliefs, but there is at least an attempt to discover truth and reality rather than simply accepting as true the statements from ancient peoples that were extremely ignorant by today's standards.

    That the deists today haven't joined the mainstream in this area doesn't mean that everyone hasn't.  It is incorrect to assume that because you choose to believe based more on desire than on evidence that others "search" for similar "beliefs" in their lives.  People search, but they do it in a different way and for different things.  The warm fuzzy feeling inside that belief in superstitions brings is not the purpose of searchers; rather the purpose is to discover reality and that purpose dictates that the methods used to search have changed as well.

    Wilderness, you have summed it up very well as far as I'm concerned. smile

    I believe in God, or I should say, a God like energy that we all exist with and are part of.  Sort of the Hindu way I would imagine.  They also believe in an "energy force".  I do not believe in religion, which is man made and was in fact made to control the masses.  Heck of a job for a while there too...and it still holds many captive doesn't it?
