There are many different religions with different belief systems and different ways to interpret what ‘god’ means. An individual’s opinion about whether a particular god is real will probably depend upon their own religious beliefs.
I am not religious, but I can’t say that there isn’t a ‘god’ of some kind out there. There are no rigorous experiments to test this scientifically, so science can’t say that there isn’t a god. Instead of looking at this so scientifically though, I think it is important to be open and accepting of all people’s beliefs (unless these beliefs are really hurting people). Religion plays an important role in people’s lives that science can’t necessarily fulfill, so I respect people’s right to believe what they believe.
There are so meny different religions in the world. It can be hard to know which one is right. Religion is a very personal choice, everyone has to deside what they believe is right in their hearts.
So my personal belief is that there is a God. As a kid I was bought-up with the bible, but I do not go to church. I believe that we have a sole, and that when we die we pass into a different dimention to be with the creator of our universe.
I also believe in evolution, which is often thought to be a odd thing for someone to believe in both. Our planet can’t be maintained with life, without evolution. Our climate is always changing, our planet is full of natural chaos and if life does not evolve with the changes then there would be nothing on the planet, all the animals would have died in the first ice age…
I believe there is a God who looks over all of us, but that evolution occurs on our planet to ensure life continues…
I personally believe that you do not need religion to be a good person and we do not need religion to explain life on earth. I dont believe in any one religion but I am also not arrogant enough to assume that there is no such thing as a ‘creator’. The truth is no one knows. There might be, there might not be. I am happy with the idea of when we die we die and there is no after life, which is why I intend to enjoy my life now to the full and be kind and generous to others because I realise that I may not get another chance at life. I try not to dwell on it. However, my parents are religious and I respect that. If someone wishes to believe in something then that is their choice. As long as their beliefs do not discriminate or hurt people in the process then I am okay with it.
I am a Christian, I believe God is real. Christianity is just my way of personifying God, I also believe there are many paths you can take, which is kinda liberal universalist. Muslim, Buddist, Hindu, Anamalist, Pagan, etc. all seek a god or gods. I am not arrogant enough to say that I am right, just that the path I have taken is the right one for me. Christianity is not at odds with evolution or the big bang. In fact the biblical account of the creation does a pretty good job of describing the big bang, just uses different words.
Probably, maybe. I was brought up to believe in God and I still do, though my beliefs have changed a lot since I was a kid. I don’t agree that you have to choose science or god. I think that it is a very different question and I think that most scientists don’t feel much conflict between their beliefs and their work.
