I was raised Jewish...bar mitzvah'd against my will, and now I consider myself an atheist.

So the answer is no.

I'm Catholic and went to a seminary for 8 years (from high school to parts of college). I decided priesthood wasn't for me (or God told me it wasn't for me).

I am a very spiritual person (beleive in the spirit) and am also active in the church (doing volunteer work etc.).

Hey Go Canada!

I believe in God because I really can't believe that there's nothing after death. Try and imagine not existing, it's really a painful thought, even if it's true. So I tell myself not to worry about it, I believe and when I die, if I'm wrong, well there's nothing I can do about it.  Sad

I think what you'll see here is that most forum members do not believe in God, and if you listen to all the logical reasons why God doesn't exist, it may seem to make sense that religion is a bunch of BS.

However, there ARE logical reasons why heaven and God exist which have all the potential to outweigh any doubts.


I remember seeing a very informative post a while back on the topic, I'll find it and give a link for you guys to check out, might prove interesting..  Big grin

But anyways, how people believe is really no-one's business but theirs, so although it hasn't happened yet, let's not start a war trying to prove everybody wrong! Big grin

OK, lemme find that topic.....

P.S. I kindly ask that no one try to tell me why I should stop believing in God and an afterlife, I believe how I do, and believing in the hereafter is the only real thing in my life that brings me comfort, without that thought, I go insane.

So please, don't try to correct me. Thanks  Big grin

Belief == doubt. Therefore belief == sin as according to the bible doubting the existence of god is a major sin.

No, I do not believe in any god. Nor am I an atheist (in other words, I also do not believe in the non-existence of god).

With dozens of religions all claiming to be the "real" religion, and calling all others heretics for following another god or prophet, it is hard to be certain.
Usually, not believing in any god is seen as a lesser sin than is believing in the wrong one, therefore not believing is the safer way to go until one religion has been proven correct through independent means.
At that time, believing in the god of that religion becomes pointless, as we will all KNOW that that god exists.

I believe in God, and I believe that those who don't are that way because having to believe in a God, or follwing the precepts of a religion makes it too difficult on their lives. They are free to do whatever the hell they want, and not have a shred of guilt in their lives.

Yes. The idea that all that exists today came from nothing by accident is not logical. Therefore, I do believe in God.

Maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ,
His only begotten Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified,
dead and buried.
He descended into hell;
The third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sitteth on the right hand of God
the Father Almighty,
From thence he shall come to judge the Quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
AMEN.

No ... and yes!

"No":

Not understanding all details of the universe isn´t reason enough for me to believe that a super-being must have made it.

In addition, I think that at least the christian god would have to be extremely inconsistent or negligent to be able to prevent all the horrors in the world and not doing anything about them.


"Yes":

On the personal level, I´m reasonably certain that our minds do have a subtle connection to a spiritual level beyond our individual selves.

And on this level, gods, spirits and other entities can "exist" if enough people believe in them. But only as long as that is the case; Otherwise, there would be no real reason to think the greek/roman gods wouldn´t exist as much as any other god(s).

For me, this doesn´t make spiritual experiences worthless. Not at all. For finding my way in life, the spiritual connection is an important source of insight.


Of course it would be nice if there was a creator of the entire universe who didn´t have anything better to do than just look after me; But my ego will have to do without that boost, I guess. Wink/being sarcastic

I think the reason you gave for beliving in god is the one that explains why alot of people follow religions. Every religion promisses an afterlife, which offers people a peace of mind, and some hope in our dull, money dominated world.

SQ325 says: I can't believe in things/persons nobody really can see or explain.

SQ, we all have no option but to speculate on creation. Neither science nor religion has given us anything except theory. Surely you at least have some speculation, no? You may be 50/50 and that's OK, but don't feel ashamed to speculate, because that's what we are ALL forced to do on this.
