Before we start this, I'm just going to go right off the bat and say I am not Athiest. It isn't pertinent to this discussion, and personally I don't have any preference what religon you are, because most of the un-athiest people here to believe in a god. Why do we (mono-theistic religion followers) believe in god. Besides the fact that we were probably brought up that way. Have you ever just sat and thought, is there god. Why didn't god show himself. Why doesn't he? If he can't, why can't he? Can he give us a sign that he is here? The bible says he exists. The bible says that we are fools "You fools!" (Jesus) Luke 11:40 The bible was written by people, not by god. Whether god commanded them to write it or not, nobody will know, because anyone can claim god is talking to them. Oh what god? Oh, you are real....ok.... I'm seriously thinking about becoming an athiest. I blindly belived everything in the bible. I guess I'm agnostic at this point, but I don't really know. Why do you believe in god. If you don't why don't you. And leave out the annoying paradoxes "Can god create a rock he cannot control?" Nobody has the answer to that. Definite real debates please.
