we are human beings in the world ,the biggest difference between animals and mankind is human beings have feelings a,espacially good feelings ,people know what is love ,what is evil. god is in our heart ,we do something good ,he shows up ,we do something bad ,he will punish us . for those who dont believe there is a god ,he must be wrong .

So would you say that your belief in a god comes from the fact that humans differ from other animals in the sense that we possess distinct moral codes?

Not everything needs to be seen or felt in order to be real. Can you seen radio signals flying through the air? No, but that dosent mean you arent surrounded by them 24 hours a day. I do not practice any religion, but I believe in God. It suits me. But if Atheism works for you, I'm glad for you! The only advice I would ever give anyone is never stop persueing knowledge. I wont even tell you what to study or believe. Just always seek the answers. Also, dont let organized religion scare you away from God. In my personal opinion, most (if not all) religions have God pegged all wrong. It is perfectly acceptable for you to believe in God on YOUR OWN terms, without perscribing to religion to tell you about spirituality. We all have a connection to God... and not everyone needs a Priest or a Minister to give us persission to take advantage of that connection.

This should be the best response. I love the sense of sincerity and open-mindedness of the responder. Same here, I'm a believer but I do have a personal concept of God. I don't really follow what the organized religion says.

I do Believe In God Because I didn't create Myself and Because I defiantly Think That this universe came the Being By Chance ! Take a look around you from where you sit. You will notice that everything in the room is "made": the walls, the upholstery, the ceiling, the chair where you sit, the booklet you hold in your hand, the glass on the table and countless other details. None of them happen to exist in your room of their own accord. Even the simple loops of the carpet were made by someone: they did not appear spontaneously or by chance. The above Quote from the book The Existence of God by Harun Yahya The Entire book is available at: http://www.harunyahya.com/Existence_of_God.php

Not believing in gods doesn't necessarily entail that one affirms the universe was created by chance. As a matter of fact, I'm an atheist and I'm willing to admit that I have no idea what caused the universe's initial singularity to expand (i.e. what caused the Big Bang). I'm not proposing it "just happened." I simply don't know how it was caused and I refuse to jump to conclusions until we're able to gain further knowledge concerning our origins.

It is all a matter of faith. Some of the definitions of faith include: the belief in what cannot be seen nor felt, belief in what cannot be proved logically. So, for those who are always seeking proof of a god, there can never be an absolute, concrete evidence. The very nature of believing in God is having the faith to believe in something that cannot be emperically proved. But, then, answer these questions: Why is water the universal solvent? Why does water consist of one atom of oxygen and two atoms of hydrogen, with the hydrogen atoms arranged not at 180 degrees apart, but at 120 degrees apart? Why is the speed of light about 186,000 miles per second? Why is the earth just at the right distance from the sun to support life? There are many laws of physics and quantum mechanics. Why do they exist? Randomness cannot account for all of these plus many more questions. Some form of intelligence had to plan it all out and put it into motion. The Big Bang Theory was the tool to get all started. Theory of Evolution was the tool to get life started, and continue on its own. The Theory of Tectonic Plates is the tool and explains all of the geological features of our planet. And on it goes. It comes down to what you want to believe. If you want to believe it was all due to randomness and this allows you to live well and be at peace with yourself, then you are entitled to your views and your beliefs. Live Well, Peace.
