    Default do you believe in God?

    well. do you? What is the nature of God? a creator? a shaper? omniscient? omnipotent? gone? God's purpose? and why do you think that? before you answer this question, actually think about your response. i know, its asking a lot. question the very reason you believe what you do. is it because thats how you were raised? because thats what you want to believe? faith? or just what you think would be the "cool" thing to think? I think a lot of people are aethiests just because they want to say they dont believe in God, but in reality, they havent thought about it at all. and after you write your response, read it over again. and see if thats what you really think. does what you wrote resonate with your instinct? and if it doesnt, delete it, and start again. or dont post. but no bullshit, cuz then youre just a pretentious, arrogant blowhard.

    Heres how I feel. I choose to believe in God. Its a matter of faith, for me. I consider myself an agnostic, so i dont know for certain in my own head if God exists or not. I choose not to decide one way or another. but, regardless, i have some sort of faith. my God is omniscient, but has no power to interfere. I believe in evolution. I do not subscribe to an intelligent design theory. I think that organized religion only separates people from God, beyond a certain point. but despite that, i do have faith, and that is something that science cannot account for. science shows us what powers operate on our earth. but the God i believe in does not do that. so how can science explain God? it cant. and it never will.

    and somehow, i think that too much science will only make us more like robots. and less like people. hope and faith are inseperable from our very nature. we have that for a reason. to my mind, its a reason that science cant explain.

    I don't believe in any gods or anything supernatural for that matter. If others want to that's fine as long as they respect that others believe in different ways.

    My reason for not beliving in god is simple. First of all, god is an irrational concept. I believe that logic, rationality and science are the best ways to gain knowledge about the world. Therefore, faith in god is completely unnecessary since it's illogical to asume that he exists without any supporting evidence. If others want to believe that's fine as long as they admit that their faith is not based on logic.

    I'm also very negative towards organised religion in general, since I see that as an elaborate scam so that religion can control peoples' lives.
    Additionally I very much dislike fundamentalists of any sort (this includes political fanatics, etc) because they are, well, stupid. I'm sorry, but I just can't put it in any better way. Hell, I understood at the age of five that the Bible was meant to be read allegorically.

    No.

    For me, much like with Aikido:

    God is simply a concept to help guide those throughout their lives.

    It is simply a man-made concept of faith we put our trust into because we are ignorant of what happens after death.

    I am also agnostic because I only constitute various teachings from separate religions, but not their rituals.

    War. War Never Changes.

    Yes, but it's my own version of the Judeo-Christian God. >.>

    Only thing I believe in is myself, even if god is there or not I put my own strength and willpower forward rather then rely on faith for anything.
