    Agreed. So why do you feel compelled to tell me the obvious?

    I chose - I don't care.

    But I suppose a lot would depend on the definition of God. I do not believe in the biblical god and quite frankly I think that anyone who believes in the bible are brainwashed fools that needs to learn a little history on the so called book of god. Even if the original writings were the word of god the bible has been manipulated by man for centuries to fit the churches agenda at any given time. What many religions teach today is NOT the same as it was a two or three thousand years ago and nor is the bible.

    I mean even if god does exist unless god is found and is shown to have some significance in my existence or well being I do not see how he would be relevant in my life.

    If "having faith" makes you feel better about yourself, life, the dark, whatever, then enjoy it.

    But I still maintain that it is completely impossible to know that God exists (I think it is equally impossible to claim that you know that God doesn't exist).

    Without a doubt.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    Re: do you believe god exists ?

    Other, I have no idea.

    Sometimes I feel there is a possibility of some kind of God(s) or Goddess(es)but many times I don't. Maybe it's more I like to think there is but logically, as in no factual proof, doesn't seem to be.

    However with so much still unexplained I like to think there is a possibility of anything.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    "My troubles are many; they're as deep as a well.
    I can swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
    Swear there ain't no heaven and pray there ain't no hell, but I'll never know by living, only my dying will tell, only my dying will tell, yeah, only my dying will tell.
    And when I die and when I'm gone, there'll be one child born and a world to carry on, to carry on."
    Laura Nyro's

    good song. sums up the topic well.

    Do I believe God exists. Yep.
    better to be safe than sorry.

    Still, that word won't work.
    Even when you believe you should be based on smth.
    I may use it for example: "I believe my fellow is still alive because he is a good soldier and he can survive alone on that dangerous forest"

    GOD is just predicated. Just as soot mentioned, nothing different than Santa Claus.
    When kids born they get feed with the GOD with samples like: behave good because GOD is watching you.

    if l speak for myself l have always questioned the god ,religions ,the reality ,meaning of the life etc

    l knew comparing santa to god was too stupid even when l was a child
