    Re: do you believe god exists ?

    I choose to believer there is a God. That he or she (really both) wants us to be our better selves. But I don't believe a God that has both an old deal and a new deal is as inflexible and hateful as some paint him or her (really both) to be. I worry most about hose who insist they know God's will, and that others don't. Those who have no doubt are the most dangerous IMHO. But if God wanted no doubt, he or she (really both) would leave no room for doubt.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Great post. I agree with this 100%.

    I don't know. Part of me does, the other part of me does not. Regardless of that, I think that the more people who edge toward believing in a god, the better it is for the rest of us.

    Do I believe in the god of the bible, koran, torah, an invisible deity in the sky who simultaneous hears the thoughts and prayers of 7 billion people? No, I don't.

    OTOH, I do believe that there are things far beyond our realm of comprehension at this stage of our evolutionary development, things which might seem as paranormal and miraculous to us as flipping a bic would seem to the caveman. So I also voted "Other".

    Maybe

    and there are certain belief systems out there (or maybe just chaos magic) that change the dictates of their belief systems semi-frequently although I don't think they're very widespread.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Really?
    My belief on the subject and yours too are just fine, we're reasonable people, but it looks to me like the more people believe in God, the more screwed up the world gets.

    I don't think it exists within a religion, it's just a belief system of shifting belief systems which could end up including none, one, or multiple deities.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
