I once read somewhere in psalm 14:1 that says “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God. Why is it so? I asked, and the answer is because” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good among the fools. Anyone that does not believe the existence of God is one who does not want to have a superior being over him or her for whom he or she will be accountable to hence they enjoy immorality and despicable life style. And that the psalmist said is a foolish person. Accepting and believing the existence of God means there are lifestyle you are not permitted to live. You exercise dominion over your lust. Etc. anyways, it is a free world and we all have our free will or freedom to live as we please. But careless living we are made to know will end in eternal suffering in the lake of fire and righteous living will end us in eternal life of no pain and sorrow. The ball is in your court.

I'm a Scientist, have been for most of my life. I have NEVER believed in a supreme being, despite going to Catholic schools my entire life.

I'd like to know.... What is it that compels you to believe in God? How can you argue for his existence? Please bare the following in mind when you answer;

1. There are literally thousands of religions, each of which has members that believe just as firmly as you do, they say they feel a personal connection with God, they have their own religious books and doctrines etc, if you were born in Saudi Arabia, you would be a muslim, in Ireland you would be a protestant, seems like the place you are born denotes your religion, rather than divine intervention. Obviously you can't all be right, so how do you know YOU are.

2. Most religions state that God is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, all-present and eternal. If this is the case, why are people punished for sins by an all loving God, who predestined them to commit their sins by knowing the future? Why is there bone cancer in Children, and insects that burrow into the eyes of infants making them blind, could an all loving God not have imagined a reality without this? And why is there such overwhelming evidence AGAINST the existence of a creator?

3. Since the scientific era God has slowly receded into the shadows, God used to be held responsible for most things, e.g. people offered sacrifices for good health, prayed for rain, thought that God pulled the sun across the sky, created plagues etc. Now we know he does none of these, and God has been reduced to a "God of the gaps" whereby he is still attributed to things we cannot yet explain with science, doesn't seem very powerful anymore.

I'll try to respond to the major points in this thread attempting to dismantle them.

You as a scientist should already know that there is always something that can't explain by science. Like the evolution of man and even the creation of the earth, it will always torn down to where does the INITIAL components came from.

Me as a Christian believes in God for a certain reason that I know he exist and he is guiding everything in purpose to have a good life.

Please be advised that God did not punished sinners, God releases them from chains of sin. There is darkness in the absence of light I think that can already explains a lot.

I think my god, just like any other god, exist because of just one thing—Faith. I believe that if we truly believe on the god we know, then we must have a great faith on them. This great faith can be a strong argument how can I say that my god exist. Although, I can't really tell you that my god do really exist through data and other objective things, I think the fact that I have a strong faith on him makes him existing on my life. We just have to respect each others belief on this matter.

The problem with faith is that is does not lead to the truth.  People have faith in 1000 different religions, but that does not make any of them true.  Some people have faith the Earth is flat, ignoring any evidence to the contrary.

Faith is defined as belief without evidence.  Why believe anything without evidence?  Do you believe in unicorns or vampires or leprechauns or gremlins without evidence?
