I don't believe in god at the moment. But if suddenly he does appear, sure why not.

Too be completely honest I am not entirely sure. I like to think that their is a God and I do pray to him (assuming he is real). I am just one of those people who are sceptical about these types of things and usually need to see something to believe it. It's a delicate issue I must say.

lmfao... that's just ridiculous.

there's no proof that i'm not God (and just hiding my powers to pass amongst you mortals). therefore, by the same logic, you should worship me.

except that i used the forbidden magic word -- "logic". in order to for religion to function effectively, one must discard logic.

i think that anyone who claims to believe in God because of 'this proof' or 'that proof' or that 'the lack of proof is proof itself'.. is just trying to fit in and lying to their self.

if you -truly- had faith in the existence of God, you would believe regardless of what the evidence (or lack of) suggested.

me tho, i'm agnostic. i don't believe, but i'll change my mind happily enough, if s/he appears in front of me in a blast of light and awesome and commands me to BELIEVE!!

one of my favorite religious "quotes":
"Who are you to question why your God doesn't want me to believe in them?"

I want to believe in some form of higher power, and hope that there is something more beyond this lifetime... but I know religion is a huge hypocritical scam in this day & age that limits the growth of humanity as a whole and causes more problems with the entire world than I can count. If religion were to cease to exist or, heaven forbid, people saw beyond their own closed or narrow minded views of their own religions, I couldn't imagine how far advanced as a species we'd become in a short amount of time.

I am one who firmly believes in God, but at the same time, I am not someone who normally goes around spouting off my beliefs because I am well that there are people just like you who get really ticked off by it, so I am sorry if my post bothered you.

In my opinion, there is a fine line between knowing something to be true and believing something to be true, and when there is no proof of something, all one can do is either believe or not believe. One does not necessarily have to worship or praise this God in order to believe that he/she exists. I do agree with you that anyone who claims there to be any proof of God's existence is indeed lying to their self, but I do not think one always needs to discard logic in terms of religious thinking. Theology and philosophy are full of instances in which logic and religion go hand-in-hand. Your opinion on those fields of study is your own and I respect that.

I love that quote by the way and Saito rules!

yes, Saito is pretty wicked, isn't he?

anyways, i think we both misinterpreted each other slightly.

i read it as "lack of proof is a good reason itself for believing" and you read me as "ticked off"
whereas after this, it looks like you meant something more like "i'm not hurting anyone, and there's no valid evidence to say i shouldn't believe"... which as far as i'm concerned is perfectly fine. it's not a belief i -share-, but i can bet i have a few beliefs you wouldn't share either and that doesn't make either of our viewpoints less true for ourselves.

as for me getting ticked off, no not really. i probably come off as /rage!! to a lot of people on the internet, simply because i have no hesitation in speaking my mind when i see something that looks like stupidity. mostly because i'm just so tired of it, and i expect more from the human race.

and logic and religion... well, yes, it's true, they -can- go together quite well. but in daily practice, it seems they would much rather prefer "shut up, keep quiet, and do as you're told no matter how daft it seems"... very much the same as the modern school system. lovely tools designed to make the masses quiet and obedient and respect "authority".

I’m Folklore Pagan but not overly so, as were my parents and Grandparents.
So…
Monotheistic God: No
Spirits: Yes!
Nature is the only deity I’ll tribute.

Most people around me are either Pagan, Agnostic or Atheist only one Christian friend. And I have no problem with religious people as long as they don't shove their belief down other people’s throats screaming 'you'll go to hell'…
But I’m a strong supporter of reason over faith.

I'm stuck between no & I don't know on this one. I personally don't believe in any of the bible crap (ack, sorry if i'm offending everyone!), and it has always bored me. I went to Christian school for years, but tbh, I hated the whole christian aspect of it.....
