I agree with armin,Religion can be a touchy subject with alot of people so i dont think this is the place to ask such a question.

Tbh, touchy people should stay on the other side of the fence, then. As long as it doesn't turn into a hot religious debate there won't be much of a problem, right?

This question automatically could quite easily become HOSTILE, look at Monkey's answer to a person who has given their opinion,we are all free to do that, and sometimes people don't like to hear other peoples opinion when negative to their own.

CHU is a great site and this kind of question is best wiped off the board, or someone has to expect unpleasent replies,

I am quite suprised that this Question has been put on the board by either an Iranian or someone who lives in Iran,either way it makes no difference to me, also what my Relgious beliefs are is my business and not someone's who is living where the government in that country is Hostile to us Christian believers in the WEST.

So i ask myself why has this person put this particular Question on the CHU board in the first place,and if that person who has raised the subject Question which is typical C-rap (in my opinion), of which i have spoken before as our regular readers and comment writers will know of what benefit or relevance are the answers...C-rap.

Like i said everybody is entitled to their opinion on any given subject,its a free WORLD here on CHU provided we do not break the rules,that makes me quite happy,no problem.

So to the Questioner whats your point in this Question?

This topic will be allowed under the rules of the Terms of Service as well as the Forum Rules and will be supervised by moderation staff closely. There will be no need to discuss about if this topic is allowed from this post onward.

I believe in God because I think something bigger than myself is out there.

I think there is a line between "religion" and "God". More specifically, being religious is one thing and believing in one extraterrestrial creator is another.

Anyhow, I believe religion(s) is a creation of man's mind. This could be better defined as human's necessity to explain the unknown and later an ideological unifier to establish empires. Which some religions managed to do so historically.

But, denial or acceptance of God is something, I find, equal!
With the same rationale God could be accepted as "is" and with the same notion God's existence can be denied.
All in all, can't prove God exist and can't posit God is an imagination of anonymity which we can't answer.

In response to your question, from personal view, that's what I think.

I was born Muslim, later learned more about it and I'm quite convinced of the religion I'm following. One god rules everything.

From neos7 opening address (religions are not required to present proof of their beliefs beyond their choice)so i would think the same tolerance would be forwarded to those who dont and the op didnt want to know why we think what we think so the statement that I dont fits perfectly within the question wouldnt you say?

That was meant to prevent atheists pestering with "lol you guys have no proof for your beliefs and therefore invalid" because they do not have a grasp of the concept of what faith is in terms of spiritual health (or are just trolling).

Since this is General Discussions we still expect quality posts.

I believe in God. That's about it. I used to be religious. Not anymore.
