I used to be an identify as an atheist for one reason: I despised God. Now I've come to my senses and have realized I need to face reality. God is real, and He is love. All the struggles I have been through aren't caused by Him, rather they are caused by myself. The bottom line is: get over yourself, God is real and you can't change that . . .
In my beliefs, yes.
Everything is evidence of a God. Flowers, children, our bodies, the universe, etc. I know with out a doubt in my mind that God is real, and that he knows me, and loves all of us no matter what. Without him, my life would have no purpose. Also on every penny, nickle, quarter, and bill says, "One nation under GOD".
Hear, O Israel, the L-rd is our G‑d, the L-rd is One! Blessed be the name of the glory of His kingdom forever and ever. You shall love the L-rd your G‑d with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children, and you shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates. And it will be, if you will diligently obey My commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, to love the L-rd your G‑d and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, I will give rain for your land at the proper time, the early rain and the late rain, and you will gather in your grain, your wine and your oil. And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be sated. Take care lest your heart be lured away, and you turn astray and worship alien gods and bow down to them. For then the L-rd's wrath will flare up against you, and He will close the heavens so that there will be no rain and the earth will not yield its produce, and you will swiftly perish from the good land which the L-rd gives you. Therefore, place these words of Mine upon your heart and upon your soul, and bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, to speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. And you shall inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates - so that your days and the days of your children may be prolonged on the land which the L-rd swore to your fathers to give to them for as long as the heavens are above the earth. The L-rd spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel and tell them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to attach a thread of blue on the fringe of each corner. They shall be to you as tzizit, and you shall look upon them and remember all the commandments of the L-rd and fulfill them, and you will not follow after your heart and after your eyes by which you go astray - so that you may remember and fulfill all My commandments and be holy to your G‑d. I am the L-rd your G‑d who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your G‑d; I, the L-rd, am your G‑d. True.
GOD IS REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Evidence is a profound argument against this prolonged question: "does God exist". Yes, He does. Although, I believe the evidence is right in front of you. Everything comes down to the existence of God, for example. A human. What are humans, (or any human being, for that matter), made out of? What are cells made out of? Organelles, DNA, etc. What is that made out of? Atoms. What created atoms? (Insert any scientific theory on how atoms existed). What caused this? (Crickets). Science says nothing can just appear out of nowhere. Everything traces to God being of existence. God works in mysterious ways.
If a speck of matter created the big bang and everything with it, that's technically a god. I just like to believe that a dust particle created this vast world with all its jungles and deserts, and that it takes some insane amount of knowledge and power to be able to make a race of humans who evolve and debate their ideas on a website. :D
God is considered by many to be the divine architect of the universe. The god people seek is taken to many kinds of aspects, for example in ancient philosophy the ancient mysteries thought that knowledge could turn man into gods and illuminate them to a higher level, God is around us in science, philosophy and in culture. The real question is what god id the true god and if he controls the way human choose to live.
How is such an intricate universe formed from nothing?
There are a lot of "coincidences" that are brought up with this topic. Think about water. It is odorless, colorless,and tasteless, and yet it happens to be the perfect substance to support life. Is this miracle liquid an accident? Also, we are just close enough and just far enough away from the sun that we do not burn up or freeze. The odds of that are very unlikely. And lastly, we are the only planet with life that has ever been discovered. We look around, and there isn't another living thing... ever. Clearly, our purpose is confined to this Earth, and something has its hands in every aspect of our lives. This is God.
I do believe that their must be some kind of superior being to have created such an explosion such as the big bang but I do not believe in any of the world religions.
Giving my life to Christ was the best decision I've ever made. Been growing ever since :) Amen Also with all we know/see in our lives & science, it makes more sense for there to be a God!
Yes, God exists. But do not get me wrong, I do not believe in the bible because a human wrote it. Humans lie, so the bible is not a credible source for the religion. Church is not the place to 'worship' God. Organized religion is another way to twist God's message.
If God doesn't exist, why does the world never end?
Catholic and proud. can't change me.
the more I look into it, the more likely God exist.
God is really exist! Only one god created everything and he is able to do anything! Just think about it human was made so perfect! It's impossible to think that we were created from none, for example 0+0+0 can't possibly even give you One!
A state requires causation.
Show me the evidence and I'll convert instantly.
Awful question. How would I know if he exists? You can't even define what he is. Is there any point to assuming he exists? Then the answer is no... why should I allow an ancient practice of manipulating the masses with fear and superstition to control me?
No. Now don't be confused when I say no, I am not saying it because I want to spite Christians, or the religious, but rather because I am being truthful. Now I am an atheist, meaning I have a lack of belief in a god. Keyword: "Lack." When I lack the belief, that means I have few belief of there being a god, so of course that doesn't mean it is the complete disbelief in a god. Of course when evidence is brought forward, and it is sufficient... then I am indulged to begin believing in a religion, however nothing has been brought forward. So in the end, no... I believe there is a low probability of there being god. Reasons? Well when I was but a young boy, I questioned what I was taught... regardless of the fact I was raised religious. I asked questions, read the bible, was baptized, all that jazz. However, when I started to question my religion at the age of 11-13, I started comparing the arguments Christians had, compared to what atheists had. Then I decided I was agnostic. After that, I slowly began reading more "holy" scriptures from Islam, Israel, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, etc. Soon I compared the arguments they had with atheistic arguments, and soon theirs crumbled. So I decided for myself to become an atheist. Regardless of what I thought to be miracles, regardless of what I thought to be belief because of gut feelings, but due to the lack of evidence. I am an atheist, but I believe in the low probability of there being a god, compared to there being any god.
I haven't seen a god and haven't been convinced by any arguments for one. I'm not quite confident enough to say "God doesn't exist", I'd say "I don't believe in any God".
BECAUSE SCIENCE SCRUB
Literally how can you even say yes when the country you are born in is the primary factor for what religion you are. Science is founded on evidence, God is founded on nothing. It is a placeholder for questions we don't know the answer to. Idiots.
God is an easy excuse for the explainable that humans have historically come across. People are foolish, gullible, indoctrinated, and cultured, and religion/god, while historically and scientifically important (i.e. Newton created calculus in pursuit of God through numbers), is as obsolete as a soggy nine month old pancake in a cardboard box shipped to French Guiana. We need a culture of skepticism, critical thought, active learning, and the pursuit for truth in nature. Not one bound to crusty old books about made-up bullshit.
Lack of evidence is not evidence for a god.
There's no evidence of His existence. If He exists we would never know, for His realm is out of physical experience: if He can be experienced then He's a physical phenomenon and can be studied scientifically, which means His existence could be proved. Also, evil exists. God can't be omnibenevolent. He either is evil, not omnipotent or doesn't exist.
God is a bells and whuistles explanation for phenomenon in the universe either he exists or he doesn't his existence is very unlikely a. K.a. Ockham's razor newtons falaming laser sword burden of proof . however god is a sciuentiufiuc hypothesis like any other an therefore testable certain goods are disproivebn by the evidence e.g. Christianity Judaism islkam prime mover\ first cause creator\ designer gods inbtervenbtionist gods gods who care iuf we beleivein there exustenbce or not iam there foire 99.9% sure there is no god although I cannot disprove all gods there is no need for example iuf iu said there was a chinba teapot in elliptical orbit between earth and mars so small our most powerful telescopes could not see it and its existence was taught AS the sacred truth every Sunday and many people raised and prayed to and worshiped the teapot and bvelkeicpved it existed could you disprove it no but that doiesnt make it ether 50\50 or even true god isd just as unkuikely ad the celkestial teapot so while tectonically iam teapot agnostic iam an ateapotist just ASD iam technically agnostic but alkso atheist and a strong atheist at that.
there is no proof of a god in any terms or interpretations, furthermore i know some will say you have no proof he doesnt exist...well ok how about santa clause i guess we should all believe in him too oh wait cant forget the Ju Ju monster at the bottom of the sea...
You can't prove to me that God exists, if you can find any undeniable evidence of God, then I'd be pretty convinced. Even if God is real, Christians, hes done some pretty horrible stuff. If God did create everything like your religion says it does, that means God created AIDS, rape, murder, and anything you can think of. You can say that Satan created all that, but didn't God create Satan?
saying that "everything around us" is proof of god doesn't prove anything it could just as much be proof a big bang
