If i could make my own definition for what I think god is, because i dont think there is a definition for what god actually is. And for me to believe in something, i have to have it defined... so i can contain it. Cause otherwise i guess it would only be pure speculation. I dont know. My definition: god is anything and everything, the system for all things in existance. Karma, tao, tree, plant, tool, rock, my nose... I guess if you put it that way, i guess i would say i believe in that. Cause i dont really have an option not to...

I'm pretty sure there's a "god".

The specifics I will leave for a later time, when I have more info.

But I'm pretty sure "he" is there  :wink:

I believe only in things for which I can find direct evidence. So no, I don't.

I believe in god. Although, I don't believe in the image of some great white bearded man in heaven that most religions seem to portray. I believe that god is everywhere and in everything, even us. This all goes back to the "oneness" of everything. We are all energy and energy cannot be destroyed. Part of a grander scheme we can scarcely imagine.

I believe in a higher power. I don't really think of it as a God though because of the connotations that come along with it as some micro-managing old guy sitting around up in the sky planning out our lives.

That's all warm and fuzzy, and I like to think in similar terms. It's mind-boggling to consider that every particle in the universe exerts a force on every other particle no matter what the distance between them.

But, do you believe there is a sentience behind all this "oneness". That's what most people mean whey they use the word God.

Maybe 'God' is just the combination of all known energy. ?

This depends on which "God" you are referring to...

There are too many definitions of "God" for me to initially say I even understand what you mean.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Or maybe its just human nature to search for a higher power.

I believe that "God" exists within each of us, the spark of consciousness that is our soul.. subjective experiences of an objective reality. God exists within all living things, the physical realm is but one collective manifestation of this evolving entity. On the same token, I believe that "God" exists simultaneously as a source of infinite light and creation, which all of the Universe revolves around. The Great Central Sun.

THERE YA GO! Humans seem to have a psychological need for a big brother. Maybe this comes from our evolutionary past in which we became a successful species in part because we form efficient social, hierarchical groups. Whatever the reason, we love to invent a "higher power" in the absence of even the slightest shred of evidence supporting it.

Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy? The available evidence supporting the Tooth Fairy's existence is equal to that supporting the conventional (omniscient being who created the universe) definition of God.

I'd love to believe in God. What a comfort that would be to know that someone's watching out for me, there's an afterlife, and all that stuff. I choose not to delude myself.

I'll take a harsh and unpleasant truth over a comfortable, sugar-coated fantasy any day. But that's just me...

I think "god" is everywhere and in everyone of us.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie
