Faith is something very personal. Even people that belong to a certain church do not think alike. I am agnostic. That is, I don´t think I have the capacity for understanding this. It is different than being an atheist. It is just that I stand in awe in front of all the people that believe in a God but treat him as a person who would help them find lost material things. Odd, I say. I don´t understand why anyone would find it important to pray to a Creator of everything, yet detroy ll there is around.

I hope you try to be mercyful, loving and kind then. I think that should be one of the results of faith.

'AWESOME GOD'. It clearly indicates that faith in him for GOD gave a very good result for you. Result of faith is actually a practical experience, isn't it ?

if we put hydrogen and nitrogen in one container, do you think it will make a H5N1 virus? if there's a person in this world who can create H5N1 virus from hidrogen and nitrogen only then there's no God, but as long as no one can create a living thing from basic chemical elements, i belive that God do exist.

You believe in GOD because no one can create living thing through Chemistry. It directly implies that you believe totally in Chemistry of the world..! That is you think that the whole chemistry world is so much what we know till today. But its not the case with in reality, right ? Chemistry (Not only chem, everything) is growing and growing everyday. We can't say the whole Chemistry is thats it. Then how do you say that one can't create a living thing from basic chemical elements..? What chemists know today, they didn't know it before.

I think chemistry / science is not a believe system, i think they're an abstraction that we use to understand the universe. I just use the chemistry as an example that we only know very little about our existence. the more science explore the universe the more confuse we are. Some people believe that things is just happen, there's no higher being that design the universe. That's why i use H5N1 as an example. We can put hidrogen and nitrogen in a container and if life is something that just happen then we can wait until they became H5N1 virus, but if we do a chemical modification and make H5N1 virus from basic chemical element, then it actually prove that life doesn't just happen, it require a designer to create a life.

Game of Life ?, what is it ? According to you SUN is also GOD, right ? because SUN is the real thing that actually gives energy to us.

Sun gives us heat energy and all forms of energy in order for us humans to live (one of the techniques of God for us to stay alive) it is like saying that a gastric juice helps digestion to our intestines, just to process food and help us keep alive....

The first question has to be; "What god or gods?" God is not one. There are many names of god and many concepts of what a god or gods are. My choice for a god is Ganesha who is the patron of artists and writers among his many attributes. What god do you prefer?

I usually pray Ganesha. I don't know. whether it should be god or gods. Many say that GOD is only one, and he has many names. But I know other Gods too.

the whole forces that holds the entire universe is a God, meaning, the whole universe itself is a part of God's body, a small fraction of God's body, God is a force, God is a gravity, God is a pressure, God is a light, and God is a darkness too.... the reason why God is always present anywhere and everywhere in the universe and beyond the edge of the universes... just like Planet Earth, stone is a part of earth's body, water in a cup is a part of earth's body although we cannot see the entire earth as we cannot see the entire figure of God because the whole universe is a small part of God's body....

The only reasons why God exist is because the whole universe itself are still here and there, i am now still alive, were are still alive, and all things are in order to their purpose. The whole universe itself is one God's part of body, and we are all living inside God some people don't believe in God? the more they don't believe in God meaning the more they believed that God really exist... why? because they interpret God in a different way, just like me just like you just like us just like all of us we interpret God in a different way.... therefore, we all believe that God really exist.....

I don't think we can say that the whole universe is GOD's part of body..! May be, how can one predict it ! Because we can't even imagine about where the whole universe is., I mean if we assume that whole universe is GOD's part of body then, where is he(GOD) standing.. In another universe ?? May be, that also we can't predict. We can just assume things, right ?

that even Earth is a part of God's body too, remember that God is everywhere, the height size of God is not just only 6 feet, or a giant of 20 feet, but the entire blackness of the whole universe that you see is only a small portion of God's body.... but that, we don't longer need some Idols like praying in a wooden sculptured statue because it is only an image carpentry by Michael Angelo... we can pray to God anywhere, because even Earth as i said, is also a part of God's body, and the whole multi-verse too.....

I don't believe in him.I just have any reason to believe in him.I haven't seen any proof of his existence yet.Maybe someday if I find a good reason to believe,I will believe.But now I just cannot believe yet.

Hi shskumbla: I believe in God but I think it's just a personal experience. I don't judge anybody for believing or not. In fact, I don't think this makes you a better person. One of my best friends is an atheist and he is a really good person. I just think after looking perfection on the nature that, things happen for a reason and if we are here there must be a reason and that's God. ALVARO

I know, i haven't seen God, but my belief in Him is immense. He has helped me a lot in life and He helped me go through 2 big problems in life. Just praying and believing in Him , already gives me peace inside of me.

Yes I believed in God. And for me,nobody should question it. Its my faith and belief that makes me believe that there is GOD no matter what happened. Some people don't believe because maybe, they don't feel any presence of God in their life or just pretending not to feel the presence of God because they are declining God on their life. That is the saddest part of it.

I don't think should be sad for some not believing nor not believing God. Its entirely their personal choice, right ? Anyway, we believe in GOD, and we improve our self confidence.

I would say I truly believe in God.. I am not a fanatic but believe that there is a superior power above us who guides us. You can call him Jesus, Allah, Krishna or any other name, but the underlying concept remains the same.. So I have always had faith and I am sure I will trust in God always.

People have different thoughts and imagination about why they believe in GOD. Whatever it may be you are right. But for me my Mom always used to tell me pray for GOD, before I start any Good work. and I continue the same., I know my mom is write.

I guess its just the faith or believe inside us which makes us do things. I have this faith that there is some supreme power who is always there to keep a watch on us and inspires us to do the right things and good deeds.

It can also be taken as self confidence. A confidence that someone is with us. Whenever we succeed our self confidence increases.

They may say that they don't believe in GOD., but I have seen such people who were saying earlier, later sending prayers to GOD.! Might be some situations turned them.
@zaaaan (26)

god...mmm.beliving in it or not is up to you. but my opinion is that if believe that there are some good souls(god) in this world,then you must have to believe that some bad souls also exists(devils/ghosts.etc). actually situations make you believe in god and also instances make you dont belive in it.

You are exactly right. One who believes in GOD, should or will believe in bad souls too. ( evil etc..) Situations play a vital role for someone belief in GOD

I do believe in god. Well I have had some experiences I mean I have felt that god does really exist. When you are really in need and when there is no way out, god will surely help you. We have to believe in god and thank him for the good life he has given to us.

I always used to thank GOD, whenever some goos things happen with me. Because every time I just remember GOD before starting a grate work, of any risky task. When it results in Good thing I think that its the result of my prayers to GOD

First of all you have to believe in one God, not more than one can exist, as the Stronger one can destroy others.Since God is very jealous He cannot co-exist with any other. I believe the only God that described in the Holy Bible, i have no problem if somebody believes in another God, that his/her privacy matter.

I found an article on the internet about God's existence. I find it very believable as it proves God's existence in a scientific way. I believe in God not because I was raised to do so, but because I feel that He does really exist. In due time we will get to meet Him but until then, let's try to walk the path to Him.. the path to righteousness.
