    Faith helps me especially when I struggle. It's nice to feel that God's watching for me, and can protect me and make things better.

    I don't believe in God in a "classic" way. It's just that I can't believe that the existence of life is so..purposeless. I don't know if that's just me but I would like to believe that humans live to fullfill a task

    Surely with religion you have more purpose as there is an afterlife?

    Because I think that - yes even though the Big Bang happened and is the reason we are here today - I believe something had to have triggered it. And I think that 'something' is God.

    Hi, (former agnostic)
    Personally I believe (you don't have to) that there's many evidence that God exists. Most of these are based on scientific facts. For example, the quran talks about the origin of the universe, about how the planets rotate around the sun and it talks about the red shift theory, and about how all life is made from water and many more. To me I found it amazing when the quran was revealed 1400+ years ago which again proves (for me) that it has to be a book of a higher being.
    Hope that helped, have a blessed day!

    You don't need God to give your own life a purpose.

    Yeah, but without a higher power at work, it seems like there is no point to life as a whole, but each individual's purpose in life is to procreate, so that there is more life on this world

    As a big science nerd I used the conservation of energy principle (energy cannot be created no destroyed) to deduce that god must be energy. I was 14.

    With God you're basically just outsourcing the decision of what your purpose is to a third party. Isn't it much more empowering for that decision to be yours?

    I used to because when I was in between year 6 and 7 my granddad was really ill, and I prayed for him to stay alive until i started year 7
    He got a bit better and lasted a couple more months, but then he died and I gave up, then I kind of believed again (gran was ill etc.) and then I learned about all the evil in the world and gave up, for good.

    Who says any religious beliefs whatsoever, whether "classic" or not, solely account for a purposeful life? Is it not possible to have a purpose without religion?
