Do athiests ever have thoughts about god existing? And doubts about their beleifs of him not existing?
I allow for the existence of gods in the same way I allow for the existence of leprechauns. Some definitions of god are inconsistent and meaningless, but others are possible, in the same sense leprechauns are possible. But don't confuse 'possible' with 'probable' or even 'reasonable'. I find both to be concepts bordering on the insane.
Do I ever think "well gee, maybe Jesus was really god and died for our sins"? No. That's laughably absurd to me. It sounds like crazy talk just as if people were talking about Scooby Doo as being real.
I can only speak for myself, because all people [even atheists] are different.
Sometimes I do have thoughts about God. It's easy to want to believe in something that is controlling everything, because it takes away some of the pain of our lives. People want to believe that bad things that happen are part of some bigger plan for their lives.
No, I don't ever have doubts. Christianity will pass, just like all the other religions before it.
I think about it only because it is constantly shoved in my face and brought up by people around me, but I could never wrap my head around the fantasy world they live in. To me believing in God is just the same as believing in a fairy tale creature that I read about as a child. It is comforting, but not realistic. I cannot live a life that is wrapped up in delusions.
I have my moments, but for the most part not really. the only thing thats gets me is how lucky I've been. it really does seem like something or someone has been watching out for me. just because of the close calls I've had and made it through. just the tinyest coincidence would happen, and it would seriously save my life. happend several times.
I never think about how there could be a god. I believe what I have learned through science. There are facts and evidence to show me how we were made. When I was younger I went to a Christian church and even then I thought it wasn't right. I myself wonder if theists doubt their beliefs.
I personally think about religion a lot; mostly as a social phenomena. I occasionally ponder that it'd be nice if there were some sort of afterlife or higher being - though not one described by any mainstream religion - but it's a fantasy, nothing more.
Sure, I've had times in my life when the god myth was alluring to me.
When I tried to think objectively about it I found that the whole foundation that religion is built upon is flawed.
After considering God I came back to my senses.
a lot OF THE RELIGIONS BEFORE CHRISTIANITY ARE STILL AROUND AND HAVN'T 'PASSED" YET. BUDDAISIM ,HINDUISSIM TO NAME A COUPLE. TRUTH WILL NEVER PASS AWAY . RELIGIONS WILL BUT A TRUE RELIGION BASED ON A LIVING GOD WILL NEVER PASS AWAY.
sure some of them would just like some christians would have doubts about there god existing as for me though...no...definantly not
Sometimes. I'm not totally against God or anything. Like, I never disrespect other people's religions.
