I intuitively believe without reason
I question why we are here
I observe the natural order of the universe
I was raised as a religious person
fear of death
I miss my deceased beloved ones
I just want to believe in god ,what if he really exists ?
I find it irrational to believe in god
I have never in my entire life believed in God..and I tried to for a while.
IMO, he is little more the a physical manifestation of some ideal that people cling to when they are at varying states of desperation and/or if they took a 'leap-of-faith' for whatever reason.
Nothing really wrong with that...provided they don't try - IN ANY WAY - to shove it down other people's throats.

Believing there's possibly a god, supreme being or universal conscious intellect, is not the same as necessarily believing in this energy, as having our best interests at heart. What satisfies a possible deities requirements of accountability in our lives, may not coincide with our belief in what's desirable. It might be so fantastically wonderful in the end that we could've never imagined it, or it may be just pretty good, mundane or worse. If it's nothing we won't be aware and all our current concern is pointless, and may very well turn out to be unimaginably spectacular. The rub is what turns out, if anything, as a possible outcome.
The motivation for believing is "hope" and "curiosity" for some continuous existence, hopefully in at least an equal or better form. And maybe even the unbelievable god like existence.

Not in my case nor anyone I know who practices my faith.
What is common though is having been through suffering and recovered. People make fun of of so-called "death bed" conversions, but attend an AA meeting, see how many people are sober, they swear, though a faith in a spiritual power greater than themselves, be it green spaghetti monster, hairy, vengeful thunderer, or a loving God who, in their terms, "restores us to sanity". Most people I know do not fear hell, some believe they have been there, they fear heaven, that it might not be there for them....the so-called "true darkness of the soul".
Think whatever the **** you want, but that fact is indisputable.

I believe a Supreme Divinity exists as it seems logical to me.
