I mean this in the most unoffensive way possible. while i will speak my mind, I do have utmost respect for anyone and everyone and their beliefs and religion, and I do not mean to upset you in any way possible.
However, I will say that I do not believe in god or really any religion at that. I do not believe that God or a superior entity created all things. I do not believe that God answers prayers to those who worship them. If you think about it, one average and normal person may be praying somewhere in the United States in the hopes that God will give do them a service in some form or another and that it gets done somehow. However, what about the hundreds of young children in the Middle East who happen to be starving at that same moment? Aren't they praying too? So why is it that one average worshipper is done their service and hundreds more innocent and far humbler children starve to death because they were not done theirs? I simply cannot see the logic in this outcome, which happens everyday. Could it be that God plays favorites? I shudder at that thought. What happened to we're all created equal? Or maybe were not...

Again, I mean absolutely no disrespect of any kind towards anybody of any religion.

i'm open to it but i don't like the idea of one almighty being and i think religion is only for false hope to keep people happy and not killing eachother

There are many who do not believe in God. We have quite a number of them here in AG. Though, I do believe in God.

making bold statements without evidence is prone to arguments and failure

I think my name pretty much speaks for itself.

Do I really need evidence to state what I believe?

Ahh.. Yes it does. Your name is pretty self-explanatory.

I don't believe in any sort of religious god, or really any explanation of God as a higher power, but if you want to know my perspective, then dig it up from page 36 of the Christianity vs. atheism thread.

Yeah, I believe in God. I don't care if someone doesn't though, because I'm not that religous.

I believe in god. In reply to Valkyre I totally understand why you dont believe in God. I've questioned my own religion many times. As to your prayer question, life isn't fair. There is sin in the world and the rule is an eye for an eye. Doesn't have to be your eye though. Maybe they're not praying to the right god. I can't understand God and I never will.

Though I have a very deep and personal spirituality and definitely believe in God, despite the fact that so many around my area advocate 'spreading the word' or 'spreading the seed' and trying to force your religion down others' throats, I personally believe spirituality is something very personal and very different on a person-by-person basis. I find other religions and even atheism completely harmless and feel that everyone should find their own beliefs and their own personal feelings on the matter, and not let anyone else influence them--use your own heart, you'll know.

The short answer for this thread, though, is yes, I do believe in God.
