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.
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.
because people need to believe their is something after life. no one want's to think of being dead and buried forever and ever. what kind of world would this be if everyonee lived like they would die with no consequence for their actions in life
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
For me, the perfection and versatility of the atom, is all the proof I need.Its very existence is evidence of a higher intelligence. I cannot accept the accident theory. However,all the man made religious beliefs have no meaning to me.
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.
