God is here for us when we want him badly enough, suyga.
The existence of god cannot be proved or disproved. Its no coincidence that people who dont believe in him are always looking for ways to prove that he doesnt exist, while people of faith dont need to prove that he exists, they know that he is and thats enough!
Exactly. Faith can't be explained to someone who doesn't have it. You can only hope that one day they'll find a way to see.
Very true. It's something that can be hard to put into words, and even the right words don't fully cover it. I know it's very sustaining when life gets hard, though.
I believe He has His hands in everything. Even the hard times, while we may not see it at that moment, are usually the biggest periods of personal growth for us. I think our own hard times are what help us develop empathy and understanding for others.
Very true. And a lot of us do lack this. I think ALL of us do sometimes. It's a selfish world, and it's hard to not get caught up in it sometimes.
Exactly. Seems to me like you're walking a very good path in your life.
I will, but I'm not really a believer that God allows suffering. My personal belief is that He gives us free will, and that all human suffering is a direct result of people exercising their free will. I'm not saying that people choose to suffer, or that there aren't innocent victims in this world. I just believe that every decision we make affects others in ways we don't even see. There are a lot of people, particularly people in positions of power, who make bad and sometimes downright evil decisions that affect people on a very large scale. I take heart in knowing the Bible tells us that those who suffer in this world have a special place with God and will be rewarded in eternity with something so great it's beyond our understanding.

They are your beliefs. As for the scientists, I have the utmost respect for them. When we don't know something it means we have to work and try to find out and not assume god did it, because if humans did that we wouldn't have progressed so much.
The gestation period for humans is approximately 9 months long and gestation periods vary from animal to animal. Why is 2+2=4? It just is.
What do you mean speculate? Ordinary humans do that. Science tests out ideas and rejects them if they don't work. Well mysteries are to be worked on not a signal to sit down and assume god did it.
You are trying to convince me there will be things that can't be explained, I am sorry I do not agree to that statement.
It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. -Albert Einstein. He did not believe in God.
