does god exists?? now that's a controversial topic..but atheist like me don't have the word god in our dictionary..everything has a reason..big bang was a reason for our existence everything was a phenomenon encapsulated within the thesis of science...agnosticism is a matter of intelligence and some reason with little superstition...still there are some things that even the great scientists of all time have not answered yet...now that some misnomer terms and explanations make people think more in to the existence of god..but in dearth of facts science failed to establish it's presence in some debatable matters and issues...but if given time soon every single thing will end up with a reason wrt science and logic..but i want to ask a question for all atheists that we all know atom is the smallest particle but from where has this atom came in to existence??? now that is where a point of contradiction arises and we start thinking..yes there is something that's governing us all..does god really exists???? share your views and opinions ...

I do believe that God does exist. I see the evidence all around me. Even with the big bang theory there has to be something out there to create all those gases and do something to get it started. You can't get something from nothing. something had to put it in motion.

Why does the something that put everything into motion have to be god? There is absolutely no proof of it. Why are humans so unable to accept that there are some things we will probably never understand? Humans are so very self absorbed.

There is also no proof that He doesn't exist. I can except that there is a lot that we won't understand. But believing in God I believe that when the time comes we will understand everything. Sometimes we just aren't ready. Our minds couldn't hold it all.

Actually, it is the creation of oxygen, nitrogen, and several other trace gases binding together.

Reason?? Great! It must all add up! If God exists then He can be found. A thorough search is in order. Sometimes those who search find what they search for.

I would call myself an agnostic, simply because I cannot disprove that "God" (or some kind of higher power) actually exists. However, I have a much harder time accepting that this higher power is exactly as described in most organised religions. It may be that we are simply not ready or meant to know about God while we're in this current life, or that we're just not capable of comprehending the idea...I know that sounds very woolly, but I can't give a really rational explanation. The other alternative that certain authors have proposed (notably Olaf Stapledon in his sci-fi book "Star Maker"), is that God does exist, but that He has complete disinterest in the variety of suffering and problems that occur in the universe - he's like an artist who, once he completes his work, simply sits back and looks at it. This also occurs in religions like Jainism, where gods do exist, but they have absolutely no concern for the welfare of our universe (as they're on a different plane of existence), and therefore can't be appealed to for help.

I do believe in God, I am not asking anyone to believe what to believe in what I believe. After all, each and everyone of us, see the world from a different points of view. Some would want to find the truth, some would look for evidence and some just believe because of what they call faith... I am one of those that has faith and believe that there is indeed a supreme being called God.

God only exists as a creation of humans. It is absurd to me that so many people can still believe anything that comes out of organized religion. It depresses me to think that so many people can be so stupid. I was raised Catholic and was brainwashed with it from a young age. Luckily I started to question it when I was old enough to think for myself, and it has only been strengthened since.

I dislike the word "god" but I do believe in the idea that something greater is out there. I'll give an example that I've heard and like a lot. Imagen some computer programmer codded a world similar to ours with the computer having all the same abilities as humans. Given time, like us, the computer program will be able to figure out that it is made of 1s and 0s, like us with atoms. But because the computer program is just that, a program, it will never have the ability to leave that program and enter our world to figure out what made all the 1s and 0s. Yes something created atoms, but No it shouldn't be give a name and be worshiped.

I imagine ( I don´t believe) there should be a power (what is it? I myself have no power to unveil it) that has made this great orchestra possible. As I don´t have the means to answer one way or another, I pass. I declare myself agnostic. Reason, on the other hand has lots of limitations. Even the results of scientists have to pass through the interpretation of a subject. As another mylotter wrote: how can you know whether my green is the same greend you see? I can only stand in awe in front of the magnificence of the Universe. I call it that way as other people use the word God. And I´m sure we, human beings, can only imagine a tiny bit of it all. Every explanation is no better than the explanations cavemen had. Meanwhile, let´s try to survive so as to learn a bit more in centuries to come. Let´s not destroy the planet, let´s not destroy each other. That would be another miracle, I suppose.

Asking whether God exists is a bit like asking whether the sky is blue. I can say that the colour I experience when I look at a (cloudless) sky is 'blue' but it may not be the same experience that you have when you look at the sky. All we can really say is that when we both look at the sky we have an experience which is very complex but ONE of the attributes that we can agree on (even though we have no way of knowing that what we experience is at all the same) is that the colour we see is what we call 'blue'. A blind man may never have seen the sky and may not know the experience of 'blue' but something called 'faith' (together with his knowledge of the experience of others) will allow him to KNOW that the sky is blue. Belief in God can come from the acceptance of the veracity of other peoples' experience but knowledge of God can only come from the direct, personal experience of God in our lives. I can only hope that, one day, you will have that experience.
