I think this is a common question that Philosophy teachers, especially atheists, ask. Well, what do you think?

The actual answer is yes.
There is the ultimate divinite, a force with will, whatever you see in one and many.
He exists, but it is like an atom wonders if a human exists..

I believe in 'The Great Spirit', the force that sets things in motion and maintains life, it keeps the interdependent cycle of motions happening so everything in the world keeps going in the synchronised way it does. it is a force that is to respected, to be thankful to, but is not a being as such, and is not personal. the personal bit- i.e. who you can pray to and ask for help, the omniscient, omnibenevolent beings, are angels. then you have spirits who are not divine in anyway like the spirits of those who have passed on, and anything else that may be out there. ^_^ That is my 'religion', as an eclectic panentheist.

Exactly. The belief in God depends on how we define the term 'God'.

Follow-up questions: (1) How do we define the term 'Christian God'? (2) Do people become atheists because they don't believe in a certain religion although still believe in a God, a higher force, a great spirit, or a supreme being? (3) What is the difference between 'God' and a 'Supreme Being' or any similar terms?

(I wonder what's Saveyna's definition of 'God'. Smiley)

A mythological higher being who was created as an easy answer to the problems faced by humanity.

MiddeM, what do you mean? How does an atom wonder if humans exist?? You cannot say for certain there is a God. Not outright like that.

I am an atheist because after what religion has done, to me personally and thousands of others, it can go to hell. God, if it exists, is most certainly not a supreme being. Look at how messed-up the world is. Earthquakes, tsunamis, I'm talking about the natural side of things, not the human caused parts. It messed up big time.

This should be interesting. I realise my point of view is extreme. This should be a good debate! *rubs hands together* Cheesy

yes but why do you think they have the natural diasters is it either:
to keep the world balanced.

or is it to warn people that what they are doing is bad.

If you just flick on the tele there is some natural disaster meaning the gods are telling us that we shouldn't be so greedy on stuff and kill the planet.

I dunno just a thought of that came into mind while reading this so yer kinda makes sense dont ya think. Undecided
