    Default [Poll] Why do you believe in a god/religion?

    I'm just wondering what provoked you to believe in a higher power. Feel free to share your stories.

    How is this a poll? where is it? haha
    And I'm an Atheist turned Theist.
    In my opinion Science tells us the how, it doesn't tell us the why. People take progression in Science as evidence that God doesn't exist. The way I see it, we are discovering more and more evidence that God really exists. How else could all this design have arisen. Evolution proof of a design that allowed for improvement in living things over time.
    As far as the nature of God, I have no idea. But something intelligent is the origin of everything, we can call that "God." The laws of the universe didn't just spring up from nothing.
    I affiliate myself with no religion, but I am very spiritual. I do not believe we are just organic machines. The working of the mind supersede our understanding, and the rules we apply to the external world don't match up when applied to the mind.
    My philosophical views about the world are only just forming, and I'm sure they will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
    They wanna bury me, I'm worried -- I'm losin my mind
    Look down the barrel of my nine and my vision's blurry
    Fallin to pieces, am I guilty?
    I pray to the Lord but he ignores me unfortunately cause I'm guilty
    Show me a miracle, I'm hopeless -- I'm chokin off
    marijuana smoke, with every toke it's like I'm losin focus
    Fallin to sleep while I'm at service, when will I die?
    Forever paranoid and nervous because I'm high...

    I've been an atheist since 8th grade. I went to catholic schools my whole life. Religion is whack to me. I understand why people believe in it, but I truly believe people either made it up to control people or out of fear. The whole "swear on the holy bible" in the courtroom is just used so people wont lie, which they do anyway. It's just used as a way to scare people which is humorous to me. That's an example of controlling people with it, kind of a small and bad example but whatever. As for fear, I think people just believe in God because it comforts them. If I said I believed in God, I'd be lying to myself because in my own mind, there is no way a "God" could exist. I just can't see it. Science disproves so much in a good way. It explains almost everything, and gives us legitimate theories to how the world started and things of that nature. I think people believe in a God because they're scared of accepting death. IMO we just die, nothing happens.

    And I don't care how religious you are, I think everyone will agree with me on this: If religion didn't exist, this world would be so much less violent and a lot more developed/smart. If only...

    seriously no disrespect or anything towards religious people Im just saying how I feel I really don't understand how people believe in this shit I understand if you belived in god in like 90s but today technology and science has over come and it's pretty obvious religion is made up just to milk money of people like seriously if god was really real don't you think life would be as it is now good die young and good things happen to bad people it's fucked up most.off high religious figures are corrupt raking in cash of people it's total bs if god was so real why he never answers prayers or never shows seriously I could go on forever but don't want to seem like a dick I belive in karma and shit like that thoo hope this don't offend people but religion is a just an excuses to cause shit and pointless hate and wars over something.fictional it's a fucked up world

    I am not follower of Christian doctrine of 'faith', that suggests that all human dramas are the will of god, but I believe in the rule of cause and effect...that positive mind can evolve into greater things... I do not believe in creation theory, so no, I do not believe in god that is presented in the biggest religions, but I consider myself to be spiritual person and I believe in greater force that is in nature itself.

    As Tupac said, "I put my faith in God, blessed and still breathing, and even though it's hard that's who I believe in before I'm leaving, I'm asking and grieving." So, my answer in short is I do believe in a higher power with that being God/Jesus Christ/Holy Spirit. I'm not tied to a certain religion though, but if I were I'd be a Christian.

    I never really had any influence from anyone else. Mostly my entire family from step parents and blood are of the Christian faith, and my mom's side of the family tried giving my mom books to make me believe in it when I was real young, but my mom knew better. She gives me conversations on how God controls the world but lightly and that Hell ain't fire, but that it's actually a gray place where you walk off for a long time to get rid of your wrongs, but she absolutely lets me choose my own way. So far, I have no idea.

    I don't want to say I'm an Atheist, but I'm definitely not a religious person in the slightest, plus I have no clue if a God really does exist or not, though I do catch myself saying, "Oh my God", a lot, so I suppose a small bit on me believes that there is God somewhere. I'm open to either way, really. Not scared if we all just rot in the ground, but I would welcome a Heaven of sorts if it is so.

    I'm an atheist. I don't follow a particular religion or believe in a higher power, but I respect those who do.

    I have friends who are atheist, but they can be very dogmatic at times, and very dismissive of religious people in general. This give's other atheists like myself a bum rap cause not all atheists are intolerant assholes like Richard Dawkins lol.


    Blast me but never ask me to live a lie
    Am I wrong cause I wanna get it on til I die
