I do believe God is real, for many reasons, mainly because Jesus is God. That is the truth.

This debate is in the matter of opinion, so you may say what you want but I'm entitled to my own opinion. I'm agnostic I don't believe in god but I do believe that there could be a slight chance because where could the thought of his existence come from, but the reason I say no is because there is more scientific and physical evidence that we have been made by other species rather than a magical god who sends people to the heavens.

I also believe the bible could be wrong because it's been changed so many times and it's original book was in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, and so the bible could have been translated wrong, not to mention it has been changed many times.

That's the thing though you're not supposed to feel or see, but in my religion it is more of the believing without seeing. Scientific evidence or Science in general don't go well because for Scientist to theorize or believe they have to see and feel, my God isn't about that. It is like the story of the apostle Thomas:

I do understand where you are coming from but it also says in the bible multiple times to not change anything that is written. Sure people re-word it and the bibles change their lettering. But all in all I'm sure the bibles are the same in referencing who God is and the stories behind how Jesus came to be.

Let me tell you this again, this debate is matter of opinion, because it clearly states "do you believe in god?" Well my opinion is no, so you don't have to prove to me that he is, if the debate was "god is for a fact real" that would be a different story because then you would have to give out fact about his existence that can convince people to say "well maybe you're right" and I would have oppose that to convince others that that he is not, but since it's not all we have to do is just say our reasons which we already did and say debate over, and this is not even a debate, this question should be under the category "opinion" if you didn't know there was a category for that because I see you're new to this website, and can I just say welcome to DDO. :)

Oh one more thing if you thought I sounded rude or mad my apologies I didn't mean to come out that way.

Like it matters now... Hahaha. But, yes we don't have the original copies of the NT. However, 80 percent of the errors in the NT are common mistakes as y o how someone would spell their name, (John or Johnn).. Y'all the errors that skeptics bring up have nothing to do with theological concerns. There is plenty of good evidence that the NT is reliable. My two cents :).

Peace :)

I have worked in countries such as India and Israel and Vietnam where people have been slogging in poverty despite being hard-working, smart, earnest and god fearing. On the other hand, rich, corrupt and powerful continue to rule our society. If god really exists there would be such economic disparity the differences in personality,

I retract what I said about science, science can somewhat work well my religion.
