    Great topic dave....i grew up catholic, but I am in no way a practicing catholic, yes I did go to schools run but nuns and priest (70's) I chose not to attend church, I find it offensive when a religus groups show up at my door and have been know to ask them to leave, which living in the bible belt of america is a lot.

    I guess there is a lot of questions to ask on how and why most people do and don't beleave in god.

    If there was/is a god? Why is there war? Wouldn't there be peace through out the world if there was/is one?

    If there was/is a god? Why are there the rich, the middle class and the poor? Wouldn't god want every one to be the same?

    I guess with all that i've been through in the last few months (loosing my mother to cancer,the horses and dealing with my kids) I have really fallen a stray from beleaving in him but that is my own choosing

    I can't say that I do believe in God. I do totally respect it though. I wouldn't go around making fun of it because that's just rude and if people want to believe something i'll let them. I don't believe in its as there is no scientific proof. How can something like that exist? To me the whole theory seems like magic and although I do personally wish I went to hogwarts (haha im just joking) I know that magic does not exist. There has been more proof that flying saucers exist and yet nobody believes that, including me. As for the theory of evolution there is proof! Scientists don't just guess. There is a reason why it is being taught in school. I hope nobody is offended by my post but that is just what I believe.

    Did you know that there is more proof that Jesus existed than Shakespeare? And Einstein believed in God by the way. And magic does exist, we call it witchcraft. A weejee board (however you spell that) is actually interacting with satan and the Exorcism of Emily Rose is a completely true story. Mary told her that she would save many people from hell by her suffering. I am a Christian and I feel so sorry for the people who aren't.

    Im sorry you feel that way. I just don't personally believe it. But I won't try to convince anyone otherwise because I think everyone has the right to believe what they think.

    You're sorry that I feel that way? Huh no I'M sorry that you feel that way about what I believe. There is sooooo much proof. God invented miracles to prove to people who were doubting His existence.The Catholic Church has survived 2000 years. It's no ordinary church. And the news are always talking about this Church, they know that there must be something up if a Church survived so long and has only become stronger in time. I'm not talking about protestant churches, I'm talking about the Catholic church

    Well Guys, I would like to think we have a god, and beleive me there has been times where I have prayed to him and I feel he has answered my prayers, but I do sometimes feel a bit unsure, you see im a psychic and I also truely beleive that we go on to another place after this one, as there is 3 stages of life, 1 is when you are in the womb, (you cannot return) 2 is here and now, 3 is when you reach the 3rd stage, as even with number 2, I don't feel you can come back, butwith the 3rd stage you can contact people if you wish through people like me, now im well confused sorry guys rambling on, but the 3 stages do make me think about certain issues alot.

    I do not believe that God created the Earth. I believe in the scientific explanation, the "Big Bang Theory" when two things went BOOMT into each other and it made things, which grew and grew and grew and grew in monkey.... then humans, etc. I kind of believe in Jesus, but I do not believe that God sent him down to earth to make them understand about him. God is God, but, lots of cultures and countries have other 'Gods' too. Some have the sun as a 'God', etc, so, why is God, named, God? Is he THE God? I don't know if I believe that Jesus came back to life after he got put on the cross for death, but I kind of believe that everyone has some sort of power. Not real power power, but a power inside kinda thing. By the way, when was the Bible made? If it tells a story when Jesus lived, then did someone who saw Jesus write it? I don't think so. So how did the Bible get made? Is the things made up? Because in my eyes, the Bible was made by someone after Jesus, and just made things up about good.

    Not sure, sorry. I kinda believe in God

    That's it right there. I'm pretty much the same thing. I don't make fun of people's religious or the religion itself. I do not like the idea of using God's name in vain either. I get annoyed when I see other people do that too. I'm do not consider myself to be a religious person but more of somewhat spiritual person. I don't attend to church for some reason that I prefer to not disclose. In general churches are great as long they don't make you to belong to that church and attend to that church only. I like being able to go to various churches.
    My brother is a devot christian and I don't quite like his ways lately. He have been putting his church at top of the list instead of family. I think he is working on that which I really hope so. I believe that FAMILY comes first and then church comes SECOND and so on.

    I do not talk/pray on daily basis but I do so whenever I feel the need and I do often thank him for various things when I do that too. This thread is making me think about varioius thing in my life and other people's life. The main thing is to have positive attitude!

    I think I feel better chiming in

    Being as I am enrolled in college/seminary to become a pastor, yes there is a God. I'll make this a short story.

    Just before the hurricane Katrina, 2 years before Katrina, I took my pastor's place at a hospice company. I was still not sure but took the job anyway. I was not completely convinced about God & Jesus but went to spend time with elderly people and read the Bible to them if they requested so. There were many, MANY things that brought to knowledge and full belief that He is there and is watching. I went into something not confident and a bit skeptical and came out an all believer.

    Great topic by the way....

    IM not sure either. Im a Cathlic. But I only inherited it. My poppy died for 15min when he had a bad heart attack. He wan't a man who belived in God, he was totally negitive towards it. Although he said his mother and father where waiting for him. He saw this bright white light. And he heard them calling him.

    I will never forget that!!! He lost his voice 3days later and was pariseled down the right side of his body. It was horrible, the next thing I new I turned off the life support. That second a sweet smell came through the air, and a whosh of wind passed us. I knew he appoved of that decision. That still brings tears to my eyes!
