    Re: Do you believe in God?

    What is God?

    If God is the ultimate mathematical equation of the universe, then yes, I believe in God.

    If God is a white male with serious jealousy and rage issues who judges or punishes people based on archaic laws written by men claiming to speak for God...(deep breath)...then hell no.

    Did.

    Not.

    Vote.

    Poor showing, gnave.

    I believe there is some sort of force that is branded as "God" and worshped through a variety of religions around the world. To me God is who/what ever you need God to be to have a happy and loving life.

    Sure, supposing such a process somehow became manifest from absolute nothingness to begin with.

    The entire spectrum of life, emotions, sentience and intelligence. Even love itself.

    All somehow blinked into existence for no reason whatsoever? Yeah, okay. I find such a suggestion more far-fetched than God ever could be.

    Must it be a 'need'? Can it not be a belief? Even a belief informed by personal insight and experience?

    I wasn't raised in a religious household, but I'm a believer nonetheless.

    I sometimes wish that God would make Himself known, in so obvious a fashion as to bedazzle every last human being on the face of the earth.

    Just for the sake of being childish enough to enjoy the utter shock and horror from the atheist community.

    ****, what I wouldn't give to be a fly on that wall.

    Why would atheists be horrified?

    And what if the god that shows up isn't the one you believe in?
    The odds are fairly strong that would be the case.

    Most atheists wouldn't care. Most care about reality. If God is real, so be it. Let us know when you can prove God is real.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Do you believe in God?

    I wish there were some stats on how many atheists accept our lord and savior Jesus Christ on their death bed.....Sadly I am at a time of my life where long time friends are dying and several who had given up on religion did exactly that. If this life on earth was all there is how sad would it be.......

    Not sad just reality. Having almost died, I can tell you that I did not find any god or your jesus. What I did find was that I have really good friends and family, which in my book counts for a lot more than legends. And I also learned that time is of the essence. The way I look at it is that theists tend to be believing that life will continue forever while they waste the little time that they have alive. Is there a god? Is there an afterlife? What if you knew there wasnt? How would that affect how you live right now?
