    I believe in God.
    I believe that the Messengers of God are evidence of God and that they represent God on earth.

    First the big stuff
    There is no need for gods
    There is no evidence of gods
    The gaps in knowledge traditionally filled with god are now being filled with knowledge.

    Then the nit-picking stuff
    Unnecessary suffering
    Childhood leukaemia etc
    The mosquito etc
    The futility of prayer
    Hypocrisy of religion

    Result, i don't believe gods (or a god) exists

    No, I don't believe in god.

    Religion is (in the main) a political power grab and a money making exercise.

    I can see no evidence of the existence of god or gods.

    Yes, i believe in God, why?
    Because i do not believe this world would create it self from nothing.
    Secondly i have seen enough personal experiences that to me it is sign from God.

    Can i prove to others that God exist? No i have only personally experiences not something publicly. My belief and love for God is not something i expect others to believe in.

    If you can't believe this world came from nothing, then why can you believe a god came from nothing?

    Same reason I don't believe in unicorns Thor, or little green men -- no evidence.
    As soon as someone produces real evidence of any of these I'll believe.

    You only time you 'believe in' something is when you have no experience of it. I don't walk around saying "I believe in the tree in my yard." Neither do you.

    Thank you so much! It's ambiguous, too. I like ambiguity!

    Do you believe that the messengers (Abraham, Jesus, Moses, Mohammed...) are really speaking to God?
