    Not Just God, the Triune God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

    Absolutely

      Yes, I believe in God, more than I do anything else. I believe because I've made it this far by his grace. I've been in situations that I thought I'd never get through. I've just wanted simple things, I've prayed-and it happened. I've been in bad situations *by my own...

    I heard of this argument from a podcast but I had a similar idea, but Justin Schieber has fleshed it out a bit more. Sheiber provides a nine-point argument: There is a possible world (P) that is God existing alone, and nothing else existing. God is a perfect being. Therefore P...

    Too Coincidental

     I believe in God mainly for the fac that life is too complex and too coincidental for it all to just happen. Science is the biggest helper in this belief by exposing lifes mysteries and show just how amazing us just being here is let alone everything else. But in saying...

    Why Not? Well, Because...

    I believe that faith is wishful thinking. I have not seen even one scintilla of tangible, reproducible, empirical evidence for the existence of any god, not just the christian deity. No one has ever been able to produce such evidence, despite centuries of trying to do so. This...

    I Believe

    I believe in God because I see and feel the presence of God everywhere in nature.  Strangely enough, it is all the evil in the world that bolsters my belief.  When I see how horrendously evil humanity can be, I know in my heart that there is an opposing force of pure...

    Avoid Belief... In Anything.

    The first step to a closed mind is belief.  Whether it is faith or fact based.  Don't believe!!! It's a mind killer.

    I'm Sorry But I Believe Faith In God Is a Hindrance

    Here's what I've discovered and it's pretty simple- The idea of a higher power was invented to explain the unknown. But eventually mankind started discovering scientific explainations for life's mysteries, including how we came to be here. Thanks to the curiosity...
