Do you believe in God ?
 
Hi Guys

Do you believe in God ?

If yes than why ? If no than why not ?

G10 02-15-2014 03:59 AM

You do realise that there is a very high chance that this thread is going to end up in the political section as these sorts of threads have a habit of becoming "hot potatoes" pretty fast ;)

This is a personal thing and personally, I do believe in God. Ok, I could rabbit on about the beauty of the planet and what I personally feel within me etc, though I won't do that, I will approach this answer with the little shred of science that I know.

As for why, that's a bit complicated really as I have many reasons, though one is that according to our laws of science and physics there has to be a beginning and an end to everything. Problem with this is that OUR earthly SCIENCE (especially physics) actually begins to break down and fall apart as we step out into the universe, for example...

We have black holes that can not only bend light but accordingly, time itself within the even horizon (centre of it) can't even escape and basically stops.

That is just one phenomena (that we know of) within space, and this was from reading scientific books such a by Stephen Hawkins (Brief History of Time).

With this in mind, I guess that it is possible for an entity to exist and not be affected by time. Granted, it would have to be a pretty powerful entity and if an entity can do that, then I don't care what others call it, it would have to be pretty darned powerful and I would definitely label it as a God.

Again, just my personal belief.

Very great comment G10, I couldn't agree more.

Do I believe, yes I believe. It make me feel better, and religion make this world much better because people are still aware of sin, so there are exist such as humanity, social, etc.

even one of the greatest scientist belive in god (Albert Eisntein).

Jim Gillum 02-16-2014 12:49 AM

Yes I do....

I bounced back form some pretty bad stuff , over the years.....without much explanation...:)

run4fun 02-19-2014 05:04 AM

I agree with G10 in several aspects. But no I don't believe, although I was raised a catholic.
But I am also a academic scholar and I quickly learned that most of what was taught cannot be true.
But I am quite happy and I have my own personal and social drivers in life.

bizsol 02-20-2014 11:47 PM

Yes I believe on GOD because God Give Us Every thing and one I come back to GOD....

grasshoppersean 02-21-2014 01:58 AM

Yes this type of tread and escalate quite quick. I have no problem with god and religion but i have had no need for it in my life. I can understand sometimes people can use it in there lives but its not for me. but never say never

Mohit0786 02-21-2014 05:08 AM

Yes, i do and I have no reason for this but its my faith that God exists. 8)

mk8907 03-14-2014 10:31 PM

I have to say this has been actually a very quiet thread and everybody's response has been interesting.
As for myself I don't believe in God the way everyone has made religion into today. What exactly is a God? Does space end? What is out there? I do believe there is a higher being out there but not sure if it is a God?
I think religion is used to control and manipulate the masses.

What do you think Dave Thompson the creator of this thread :-)

I was not interrupting in the thread because everyone has their own view and no one has rights to force them to believe what they are believing but according to me yes i believe in god, I think god is only one for every cast and religion, if you will go deeper in any religion than you will see every religion has pointed out that God is one and it seems logical because false could be many but Truth is always one. I personally feel that the system of this Religion and Cast should be end now so there will be not any riots in the name God.

That was a very spiritual answer. But I have question here, how many of you agree with davethompson. Do you believe that there only exists one powerful almighty being who created the world or he has many forms who are being worshiped by others. And why people just don't accept the uniformity of the concept of God. That will simplify so many things.
I am agnostic by the way.

This is a hard question. If your religion tells you to believe, you have to believe right?

Although I have a religion, it doesn't make me have to follow it. From my expert judegement, religion just makes more problems between people.

Maybe life is an obstacle course and false religions and believers thereof are obstacles to be overcome.

The difference is that assumed scientific knowledge is derived from conclusions backed by empirical evidence, while religious beliefs are derived by conclusions that are jumped to without any evidence (nor sound reasoning).

Sometimes the conclusions made during scientific inquiries are wrong, however more often than not the conclusions made are right, often can be shown to be right, and if they are wrong, can be corrected. Religious conclusions (about the existence of god/gods/goddesses, souls, afterlife etc) are never shown to be right.

As for the part about physics outside of Earth, it is just a matter of coming to the realisation that the physical reality is more generalised than previously believed.

Saying ‘Einstein believed this’ is not an argument. It is simply taking someone deemed to be an intellectual authority, and then assuming that because he thinks/said something it must be true. Einstein wasn’t an intellectual paragon. He was intellectually brilliant in ways that the vast majority of people aren’t (which allowed him to contribute greatly to physics). This doesn’t mean that he was intellectually brilliant at everything.

Also, Einstein was an agnostic (with Spinozist tendencies). He said that he was uncomfortable with being categorised as an atheist, and identified more as being an agnostic. This would suggest that his belief in the Spinoza’s god wasn’t held with much certainty (nor did he worship this god, or believe that it was inherently tied with morality or an afterlife).

False. An individual believing in their own existence (something that is self-evident) does not imply a belief in a god (a belief that has no evidence to back it up).
