So you believe in God for fear of burning for eternity. First of all, HELL is just a scare tactic.
GOD- "If you don't believe in me and do not do what I say, you will burn in a pit of fire over and over again for all eternity...btw, did I mention I love you"
I definitely do NOT believe in a god like that. I do personally believe in a higher power, whether that be one being or many I do not know. I find it easier to believe in a higher power because so many questions cannot be answered.
LOOK, most religions are ways to control the people, take away their freedoms and their money. Step out of the box and turn off the tunnel vision. Start thinking for yourself.

Why do you, those that do, believe in God?
You cannot prove he exists.
I know there's going to be people that say, "Well, you can't prove he dosn't either". So? I guess then I'll worship Bigfoot, The Easter Bunny, The Loch Ness monster, or any other mythical beast. You can't prove they dont exist either. "Theres no proof it does or doesn't, so it exists." I guess Wizards, Giants, heck, even Lygars exist.
Perhap's we live in a Simulated Universe.
It's highly possible. With the way technology is advancing, Perhaps the real year is the year 3000, and technology is so advanced, that we cannot tell it's virtual, and we beleive we are in the year 2007. You can't tell me I'm wrong, and I can't say im right. There's no evidence for either.
As with my discussion on Shelley yates, I'm going to state the same point. Religion Sells.
someone, perhaps not even 100's of years ago, wrote the bible.
There is no proof it was written when it says it was.
The Bible says it was written then, but that dosn't make it right. "Scriptures written back then say it was written then." So someone primitive wrote down some ideas, and someone later in time make a book out of them. Doesn't mean it was.
Prove to me, your god. Why do you believe.
Just far to many questions that science cant explain and evolution just doent make any sense at all. I

LOOK, existence itself is a paradox. According to our knowledge, nothing should exist because WHATEVER it may be that created us, has to have a creator, and so on.

The void is no mere emptiness, but is real, free and existing. It is the source from which all things arise and return. It cannot be seen, touched or known, yet it exists and is freely used. It has no shape, size, colour or form, and yet all that we see, hear, feel and touch is "it". It is beyond intellectual knowing and cannot be grasped by the ordinary mind. When we suddenly awake to the realization that there is no barrier, and has never been seen, one realizes that one is all things, mountains, rivers, grasses, trees, sun, moon, stars, universe are all oneself. There is no longer a division or barrier between myself and others, no longer any feeling of alienation or fear. Realizing this, results in true compassion. Other people and things are not seen as apart from oneself, on the contrary, as one's own body
