    The intensity with which people do not believe in the existence of God is proportionate to the intensity of misrepresentation all the religions did. Hence both the groups--atheists and religionists--have nothing to do with the existence of God.

    aerodynamic, I am totally with you. I suspect that those that champion total, unfettered atheism, have not been active , compulsive or compulsory creators, like you , engaged in "eyeball engineering".

    It is hard to create a functioning universe. particularly one that seems to run without further tinkering. to those think otherwise: you try it.

    The only possible God is the God of Einstein and Spinoza.

    Ah the easy questions first 😏

    I used to believe in God because I couldn't see how else we could have got here. Evolution has answered a lot of that question for me, but not all. How the universe exists I have no idea.

    One thing I do believe is that no all-powerful being who loves us could have sat back and watched the terrible things that have been done in his name and not stopped them.

    I have become sick of people telling me what's true and what isnt. Now I read, study and think for myself.

    Actually the knowledge that whether God exists or not has no bearing on people’s lives because we find all sorts of people among believers. In my life I have seen I have always been reaping according to my thinking, which means God doesn’t have to do anything—everything is automatic.

    It depends on how you define god.

    A personal, loving, powerful god does not exist. That much can known beyond all reasonable doubt...

    Complexity has not been an argument for god for over 150 years...

    For me to trust that something is true, I need evidence that will withstand all sorts of questioning and testing.

    Therefore I do not believe in much, I trust that a lot of things are true, that trust may be misplaced, but at least I am not as likely to be duped as I was when I was a believer.

    Being fooled by Bullshit cost me too many years of my life.

    There certainly is no god as presented by all religions, and by many individual believers, if there was a Creator, we have no knowledge whatsoever about he/she/it, and so it is not worth spending time debating, w have nothing to base a discussion on.
