Why are you believe in god?

Report as

Because of faith, love and hope. Because of desire and yearning to know. Because we fail at being God. Because there is no rational basis for claiming the universe has come about by "it's self" or have been there in infinity. Because our knowledge of what is relative and changing logically requires that which is absolute and unchanging (God) in order for what is relative and changing to be recognized. Because rational thought has no meaning if it is based on nothing besides it's self (in which case it contradicts itself as necessarily being valid by it's own account). Because I am able to while nothing demands that I disbelieve. Because life is meaningful to me as opposed to an absurd nothing. Because God is real to me....those are my basic reasons.

Believing in something because you don't understand the world is irrational.
Report as
Searched for the meaning of irrationality and got this.
Irrational is specifically described as an action or opinion given through inadequate use of reason.

So, I believe in God because I do not have a strong and refined power of reasoning.
I won't believe in God when I get an answer to every question I've ever had and then perhaps I will have the ability of reasoning which will not involve anything supernatural to explain the universe.

I won't mind Skeptikitten but rather think twice before writing into religion and spirituality.

That's how one must use reasoning skills.

Evolution is a fact and doesn't need to get "shoved" any more than gravity does.

It also has nothing to do with religion.

wasnt shoving gravity besides gravity pulls it doesn't shove. one species becoming another species is theory. overwhelming evidence i here but yet to see proof of that (Fact). couldn't find that in the book on understand evolution either

No, we've witnessed speciation. Try again.

Report as
ok weve witnessed speciation : the iguana that took the storm ride to that island : they say we could be witnessing Sp in action: then the disclaimer: we cant be sure but experts suggest: then the blackcap they started out as birds and are still birds: then you go on and it says that this could signify the beginning
of a speciation event . words like were hopeful. yet no and i mean absolutely no hard evidence to prove this as fact you who do not take things on faith better check again how you come to speciation as fact cuz is all on hopes dreams faith and the desire to prove that creation was an accident chance 1 in 100 million trillion . you talk about faith girl you got more faith than i do.
Report as
Of course those organisms are still birds- "bird" is an entire Order. If a bird suddenly became something other than a bird it would DISPROVE evolution. There are many Genuses and many thousands of species of bird- speciation of course means they'd still be birds, just a different species of bird.
Honestly, you don't even know the definition of the words you're talking about.

We have hundreds of examples of speciation- from microbes to insects to fish to birds. We have many examples of ring species, which no evolution denier can explain away. Perhaps you should actually get a proper education rather than reading creationist nonsense before attempting to discuss biology with a biologist.

Why do we still have apes? I haven't seen too many people that haven't quite got there yet ( still monkey like attributes) Where are the half in between species? The notion is ridiculous. Yes you are a biologist Skepti but you don't know everything!
Report as
We didn't come from apes, we had a common ancestor. That question is like asking why there are still Europeans when Americans originated in Europe. And there is no such thing as a "half in between species". Populations evolve not individuals and species are in constant evolution. Statements like these prove you have no idea what evolution even IS. Try reading an actual biology text, and you wouldn't make such ridiculous claims.

And a biologist is an authority on this topic- evolution is both established theory and fact, like gravity or germ theory.

for me, i believe because i have seen and lived things in my life that i cannot rationally explain any other way. i feel in my heart and soul that what i believe is true and right FOR ME. my belief gives me a peace and joy that makes me feel good. it grants me hope. it gives me the motivation to make myself a better person. it gives me the inspiration to want to motivate others to find that same feeling for themselves, not by my telling them what to believe, but by (hopefully) them seeing the comfort i have with myself and my life, and then they will search for the same for themselves with what works for them.

things just didn't plop here like road apples on the planet Earth. God, as the Almighty spirit is known to the majority of people, made the planet Earth and put the humans, animals, insects, and various other things here.

For me it is because I have has too many situations arise in my life that could have had catastrophic results were it not for intervention by some unknown hand ; time after time I have seen evidence in not only my personal life , but in my surroundings that there could be no other reason for their being except by a powerful unseen entity, I choose to accept the existence of "God" , since the option of evolution leaves too many unanswered questions for me.

I think god is a source of power not a man in the sky. U expect me to believe that heaven is a place on clouds? Well have u ever seen a building on a cloud? For all we know the person who wrote the bible is a drunk dude that got bored and wrote it. For example: in a thousand years they will take a JK Rowling book and they will think that there was a powerful man named Harry Potter. But i believe that a source of power is god because look at our universe? Everything is so precise and perfect. I mean dont u ever wonder what other planets have life? In our never ending universe there has to be another planet. Why are we, so special? I mean instead of goofing off in class pay attention so one day we can make ships the speed of light so we can find another planet. Cuz in a few billion years our sun will become a red giant and a supernova will suck in our planet and burn it to a spec. So by that time if we dont have space ships the speed of light, our beloved planet will die with our entire species. And if our planet does survive that supernova then there really is a god

As I am a Muslim, I believe in God, because my mind knows that for everything a beginning, and that for every beginning must have an end, and who will be at the end of the universe?! That God King.

I believe the rational is there. But that is not to deny my faith, as I will admit I don't have all the answer. Of course this is not to say I don't try to find them. God bless.

Well, sure that doesn't deny one's faith since faith is inescapable. Even those that trust in "reason alone" have their faith in that slogan as well as have faith in their own perceptions of reality to be true. The failure of rationalism ("reason alone") is that it is blind to it's own implicit faith by claiming reason is validated by reason thus making an irrational claim! Lol
As faith without action is dead, reason without faith is dead. I stand right with u in that I don't have all the answers either, if for no other reason that I'm not certain I even know all the questions to begin with! Ha ha And that I am not God.
For me it's like this: by reason I consider God, by faith I seek God, by my whole being I know God. Praise, God for His marvelous works. In Him we move, breath and have our being. :)

I found him and science isn't enough proof to how the Universe is made and I've had near death experiences where I should've died and I'm still alive to this day and one day I prayed that I would have a good day (because I'm bullied at school a lot) and it worked every time I prayed but when I didn't bad things happened to me and I believe I have a guardian angel watching over me cuz I've been in all sorts of situations at school where I would've gotten suspended or even D.E.A.P. and they just let it go do that's why I believe in God.
