Thats for you to figure out. Asking people here wont give you any help but probably arguments. Observe different religions, even try going to different kinds of Churches, and try to find your self. This is about self identity. You're not going to find what you're looking for here on the internet, or even in this answer. Explore for your self and what you believe, explore different religions and even non religion. Everything from the Baha faith to Christianity, Islam to even the agnostic belief or atheist belief. Good luck. :)

I would go with this idea, it seems more helpful.

Everyone's biased though. Thus I think you should've let him know you're an atheist. No offense intended.

How does my personal preference relate to my answer though? Yes that was an answer from an atheist, but even so, I too still have battles with my belief in religion believe it or not, so I feel like I actually relate to this question in a way. My advice was to do a little soul searching for their self, like I still continue to do to this day. I do not feel adding that I am an atheist would affect my answer in any way.

It was a good answer. I just think everyone's a little biased on these things. Everyone else kinda told their beliefs.

I believe that there is a logical reason to believe that God exisits. I can't post it on here, it's too long. :( But here's the link to my personal reasoning:

Things I find to be common sense, explained in a science-ey way, for people who like that sort of thing. Beautiful. And the first bit, the part about it being hard to write about because you're so afraid you'll mess up and can't keep it consistently epic... I get that too. I think you did a great job though. I think there's actually a chance someone'll read this and be like "d.amn... shes right!"

Thanks, It took forever to write, too. I had to go through all my notes from my apologetics class and sort out the usable facts...

I'm Christian, and I'm not just going to say "God do you exist" and hear a voice from the clouds saying "YES." I have faith and you need to believe

I agree, God is not going to just float down from heaven and say "hey look I'm real!! Okay we'll catch yah later!" You really need to seek him and believe only then will you know the truth. You can't just want to know or want to believe you have to truly believe with all your being. And believe me, the rewards of having God truly in your life are out of this world!! One thing I have always said is even if you don't believe in God accept him anyways. What could it hurt? And then at the end of your life you'll find out if your right or wrong. And of your wrong you've accepted him anyways and you're covered!

There could be a god but we'll never know. It's that very reason....nobody knows that there is a god. That's the reason why I don't believe. But, a lot of people would tell me wrong. And it's there opinion. But none of us can be sure that there is or isn't a god.

You can believe in Deism, deist believe in the nature and essence of God or a higher power, but do not follow a certain religion. Most people are deist, they just don't know it.

I'd go with Christianity but im biased on that I suppose. The teachings of Jesus make the most sense to me. You're gonna have to look into that yourself though. I can tell you with one hundred percent certainty, though, that there IS a God. People won't like me for saying this but I think we all worship the same God, just in our own interpretations. I think Jesus' philosophy on life is what a perfect God would want us to follow. Thats why I'm a Christian.

Even if that were true, and I don't think it is, it's just pure probability. It doesn't mean anything. There are so few people that actually go into space and so many theists that it would make sense that they've all been theists. If there were more atheists, there would be more atheist astronauts. It's that simple.

well then it mean Christians are more successful then atheists are

I'm a Christian and I know that God will answer you. It might not be directly but he will answer through someone or something. Just read the Bible (if you have one) and look at all the amazing things he has done and that he promises for you! Jesus died on the cross for you and he wants you to trust him. He will take you where you need to go.

I've experienced God many times in my life. God has given me prophesy, I've felt His presence, He's spoken through me, and given me prophetic dreams. If you truly seek after God, and dedicate your life to Him, amazing things can happen. I'll keep you in my prayers, and pray that God moves in your life the same we he has mine. God bless!

No else knows anymore than you do. Religions are all made up by men. As for God, well, what reason is there to believe? Why do you believe in him?

I don't believe that every religion was made by man. If Christianity is a religion (I don't consider it as one because there are many differences), then I think that is the exception because I believe there is logical evidence that it wasn't made by men, but told by God. Men simply wrote down what they were told by God in an act of obedience and respect for God.

How do you know that the Quran wasn't written by men being told what to write by Allah? The bible isn't true because it says it's true. That's circular reasoning.
Report as
That's a very good point, and I'm glad you said that.
The answer is simple, you test it. Whatever passes all the tests is naturally reasonable to believe.

I use four tests:
1) Has the authority changed?
- In the Bible, it has always been God
2) Does the authority contradict itself?
- A good authority wouldn't tell you it's bad to lie and then tell you it's perfectly fine the next day.
3) Has the authority been confirmed or examined to be true by others?
- The Bible contains names, dates, cities, geography, and details that have been confirmed by historians, archaeologists, and scientists.
4) Can the authority predict the future?
- The Bible has correctly predicted about 2000 events in history. To the letter. No other religious book comes close. The only way the the Bible can do this is because it has a supernatural author.
Report as
The Quran does not pass these tests. it has verses earlier in the book that contradicts the verses that appear later. In fact, there is a verse in it that says it's okay to contradict itself... which makes no sense.

I'm sorry, but we can't really help you with that. It's a question of faith. People of faith will tell you that their religion is the truth, and that their God is the true God. For example, as a Christian, I believe that the God I worship is the true God; but nearly every person of a different faith that I know believes that their faith's version of God is the true God.

This is a decision that nobody can make for you. My suggestion is to spend several weeks at a time going to a place of worship, perhaps attend religious study, or even go on a pilgrimage (I went on one, and I felt very close to God). On the other hand, this may confuse you even more. I wish you the best of luck.

Go to the library and get some books about different types of religion and see which one fits what you already believe the most. Religion or lack there of is truly a personal experience and one that should be considered carefully. Whatever you decide even if it is to be an Atheist you should still live your life with basic respect for others and to do good things not just because you have to.

You forgot to mention Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, Sikh, Baha'i, Pagan religions (to numerous to list) Zoroastrianism, Taoism, I guess the list could go on. The funny thing is they all think they're right. So don't fret about it, the only one that really worries about your soul is Christianity.

I personally believe that there is a god!(: we are intelligent human beings who could never have been accidentally created by some "Big Bang"! But no matter what I or anyone else believes you need to look in the bible and read for yourself maybe even visit some churches and find out what it is you believe.

The're has to be a creator, all this was no accident,ifit all started with a Big Bang , the creator lit the fuse , that's how he chose to do it. but if you believe in an angry god,a jealous, a vengeful god, as mentioned in the Old Testament , count me out, those are sinful traits. I serve a god that wouldn't have those human traits.
