do you believe in love after love?
I can feel something inside me say "I really don't think you're strong enough now."
really skeet? not even a pole? c'mon man.
ohmygosh i totally forgot about POLL's
and no i don't believe in love after love
Only when I need God do I believe in him. Usually when finals come around.
Idk what I believe, so I don't think about it. I don't necessarily not believe, I just ignore it.
I couldn't care less
There is a trend with the most intellectual minds in history generally being anti-theists.
I wasn't saying that intellectuals automatically are categorized as atheists. But it's true that an overwhelming majority don't believe in a talking snake, a magical man in the sky, or any of the other utter nonsense. Religions change with time as some ideas become more and more ridiculous , and as science explains the unexplainable. Before we knew about wind or water, there was a "God of the Wind" and "God of the Water". We think that's crazy. Just think how irrational the basic beliefs of Christianity or some other religions will sound in 100 years.
Newton - Lived in a time when he had to hide his religion, unitarianism, for political reasons.
Lewis - Wasn't really an intellectual.
Kepler - See Galileo
Kierkegaard - I'll give you this one, but I suspect if he was born today he probably would have been agnostic.
The point is most of those people lived in times and places where questioning religion was not acceptable and thus they didn't do it. Had they lived in a free society, it is probable that they would have arrived at the same conclusion most other "intellectuals" today have: agnosticism is the most intelligently defensible position to hold.
Another point worth mentioning, when really, really educated intelligent people today DO believe in God, they will usually admit that they don't have logical reasons for doing so.

When im scared of something, i want there to be a god, also when family members die, its nice to think of something like Heaven.
God is a superstition.
"The strong will stand, the weak will fall by the wayside."
god is a number you cannot count.
i went to god just to see, and i was looking at me.
I'm so adjective, I verb nouns!
Chatroom Orgy anyone?
...Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.
i believe that there is some form of higher power. idk if it's the god as depicted in the bible or other religions but i think there is something.
"Sex is one of the 3 best things in the world, only followed by: ice cream, and the chocolate stuff that hardens on ice cream."
"Faking an orgasm is like fake eating a bowl of ice cream."
options are not acceptable
no its not a joke haha i was just freaking out cause she gave me dome before and i bust all in this towel, whiped my dick off then fingered her with that hand and i was just like omg omg omg omg, then we did the nasty, i still think i'm straight.
should this not be a yes or no only?
"on occasion" should be named "too pussy to say there isn't a god because if there is then i'll go to hell for saying it"
Jesus said he was the son of God.....are we not also the son of God too?
Also God made man in his own likeness.......so maybe God is in all of us.

This is how I perceive god. God is within you and me, because whether or not you believe in god doesn't change the fact that you can control your own destiny with enough time and effort while your on this planet. The fact that we can all make judgments about the world around us and we can act on those judgments doesn't prove the existence of god, or a god, or of multiple gods, but rather it proves that we all have the power of consciousness and we can manipulate our reality based on this consciousness.
So then is the creation of a god or multiple gods by religion or ritual just an attempt to solve the mystery of consciousness? I don't know I couldn't tell you, but personally I think that if we all have the same ability to continually learn new processes and still be able retain the knowledge of past experiences then we all have an ability of god, and if we have an ability of god then it means we are apart of god. (I speak of god not in the sense that it is a person or singular thing but more like one huge idea or higher level of consciousness).
Those are my thoughts as of 5:03 AM while at work and having worked since 10:00 Pm.
I am going to have to go with I believe there is no God, however I do not treat this opinion as a fact, because no one will ever know on Earth.
However, things such as the human mind and body function, genetics and reproduction, make it hard to fathom there wasn't someone out there who laid out this perfect infrastructure.
Damn that's crazy more people don't than do.
I can't wrap my mind around the fact that people can actually believe there is a god... i leave it at that.
