    I don't believe in God.

    Because I'm a wannabee physicist.

    Then you don't believe in God in the biblical/koranic sense. What do you think started the big bang and what is outside the universe if anything?
    thats just reminded of a auction i saw on ebay. It was for the Qur'an and it was at £30,000!


    i dont really believe in any religion although i have been christened, i find it hard to believe with no real proof - i have no faith in religion

    I don't have a religion as such insofar as I don't adher strictly to a particular formula for belief.

    However, I do believe there is a God (or maybe even a number of Gods) so I'll vote yes.

    You honestly believe that the universe was started by an english-speaking omnipotent being concerned with one planet over every other planet in the universe? Or did he put his "son" in the form of a man on every planet? Does he watch over every planet, star and being in the universe like he does to us? Did he make every world like he did the earth, in 7 days, or is the Earth more important than every other one?

    Don't you think it's typical of what someone would make up? God love US, God puts his son on OUR planet, he made OUR world in 7 days, but of course meanwhile he created the rest of the universe.

    You seem to act as if the religious explanation is the only credible solution, but in fact it isn't anywhere near the big bang solution, more like a popular guess made by people living in times when running water wasn't even available. Of course, these people knew better than scientists of today, didn't they!

    It strikes me that the first people just made up things like gods to explain stuff that they couldn't explain, like why rivers flooded, volcanoes etc. So now that we know that it is not god that makes this stuff happen, what reason do we have to believe in him (or her!) now?

    Well, maybe they didn't know more than the scientists of today but bear in mind the scientists of today have yet to cure the common cold so perhaps it's unwise to put your faith in these genius' after all.

    Maybe......just maybe.....there are some things a lot bigger than we can understand.

    i suppose that if you believe there is a god, you have to realise that he/she is not a human

    I think that can be taken as read. And herein lies the problem; applying human concepts to the idea of God, leading people to ask "but who created God?"

    If there is a God he/she/it is almost certainly some supernatural power and the natural laws of the earth as we know them do not apply.
