- just because one cant 'prove' that they exist doesnt necessarily prove they do.
One would have to have absolutely all available knowledge of everything to believe that God doesnt exist out there somewhere. And none of us does, so no one can truly say there is no God. So I believe with faith....you know, the stuff that you believe Einsteins THEORY of relativity with, or Darwins THEORY of evolution.
And Christianity - in its correct form (and I will be the first to admit that there are many forms of it that are horrid before God) - is different from religion, or orthodoxy. How, you might ask? Well, "religion" is just that, something done religiously over and over, and it could best be spelled "D-O" as in its all about what "we" do for God, or to impress God. But the Bible makes it clear that nothing man can do earns favor with God, or earns salvation. Christianity, on the other hand, could best be spelled D-O-N-E, because its all about what God has already done for us, in Jesus' death on the cross.
You may choose not to believe, and thats your perogative. But to bash Christians as if they are somehow retarded or stupid for believing in God, is just wrong, especially on this of all places, THE conspiracy and theory forum of all forums.

While Einstein could provide mathematical support for his theories in physics, so far as we know, he left no mathematical support for his religious beliefs.
At any rate, Einstein's opinion of religion without the math, is worth no more than anyone's opinion.

All of you skeptics, agnostics, and athiests really humor me with your remarks, like who created God, and were not perfect, and it's all about faith.
All of you skeptics, honestly have no idea because you never undertook spiritual excercises and never seriously sought out God. In turn you mock and scoff those that have done so and those that know the truth, whereas you can only speculate on the truth.
Its a rough position to be in, because no matter what I say, you are stuck in your ways, assumptions, and state of being. Seeking God allows you to surpass the limited philosophical/intellectual boxes you live in.

All I can say is that there are no atheists in hell.
Whatever you believe about God, you'd better be darn sure you got it right.
My Bible says there is an afterlife and the only way to get to it is through God's only Son, Jesus Christ.
