Kestrel, any relationship takes time. No one goes from meeting their boyfriend/girlfriend to having a strong relationship over night.

 

Je sais... I just miss having a stronger relationship.

 

EDIT: Just switching languages. ^_^

I have a question for all you atheists and agnostics out there: Why do you believe what you believe? I'd just like to know.

A lot of the time, how someone is raised will lead them to believe or disbelieve. Science has proven this. However, science is not 100% accurate. This is perhaps due to divine (or otherwise) powers. Some people are born good, and stay good even through experiences that would normally corrupt people. Some are born evil...

does that make sense to you?

I love it when Christians ask a question on "why do you have faith?" I believe in my heart and mind (but mostly my mind) that I am right. I have faith in my perceptions and beliefs. I trust the reality as I perceive it and mediate my actions appropriately... just like any Christian. Though, I guess being deist this question may not have been meant for me... sorry

  That's okay. Thank you anyway.

I don't agree with that, but I can see how someone might think that. Do you know of any particular reason why atheists don't think God exists?

I'm sure there are plenty, but here are a few I have heard:

  • Science can [or will eventually] answer any question.
  • If there were a god, the world wouldn't be so messed up.
  • "I just don't." -Several atheists.

Frankly, I believe that there may or may not be a God because I have seen no reason to believe otherwise. I go to a Catholic school, will go to another Catholic school, and have a very devout piano teacher with whom I visit every week. Even with all of these influences, I still don't know whether a God exists or not. In fact, how do you know how your God is the right one? Almost all religions say something along the lines of "You need to believe in this religion or you will go to hell" or something of that sort. If I believed in your God, what happens if Zeus or some other god/goddess/mix thereof actually exists?

EDIT: spelling.

Well, most Christians believe that since the one true God exists, there is no need to worry about going to hell because there are no other gods. As to which god or God to believe in, I took a look at all the major religions (Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Pantheism, Christianity) and examined their basis for faith. Christianity was the only one that had both evidence for it, and all the others had holes in them or were missing enough support. If it does turn out that some obscure little cult god is the true one, then I (and many others) would be enormously surprised.

Christianity has evidence and no holes in it and the others do? Wha...?

All religions have their problems...
