It's like someone trying to solve a tough maths (math, Fat Yank) equation, and not being able to come up with the answer. Someone says "if you can't come up with the answer, I'll put down 'lemon meringue pie' as the result."

You're going "WTF??? How can a math/s equation equal a food? 2+2=Cheesecake? What the Hell?"

Then they say "well YOU can't give me an answer, so we MUST have one right now. If you can't work it out, that means whatever I say must be right."
Is that what you got out of my post? Rather than address the substance of my point, you want to latch on to a parenthetical word...SMH.

Let me try this again, a little slower with fewer words. I believe in God because the universe is too balanced, too complex, and too organized for me to believe otherwise.

See, I know you're just trying to be condescending, but "a little slower with fewer words".... I can read as slowly as I want to. It's writing on a screen, you daft cunt.

I'm sorry that I clearly wasn't able to grasp the subtle nuances and complexities of your post, it clearly went over my head. But just as a tip.... don't try and put down someone else's vocabulary in a post where you type "SMH".

They are the biggest scammers and pranksters out there. They project there is a God and that they are the chosen ones or close to god and know what he wants and needs. How the fuk did god tell them and why only them?

The biggest prank someone has pulled so far is the 72 virgins thing, I can't believe people fall for that shït.

I don't have faith but I do make every effort to live by an ethical code based around the Golden Rule. If there is a God/higher power/universal spirit and that ain't good enough then eff him/her/it anyway.

Besides, I ain't particularly thrilled by the idea of an afterlife anyway, one lifetime of fuckups was quite enough thanks.

The belief in the divine has existed since the first humans walked the planet though.

Our minds are just part of the great ethera hence we dont know all the answers.As noted I believe something divine caused the universe to begin.Hence overall good always wins over the bad in the long term.

Ive always had faith due to a profound early experience I had as a child.I do understand though why some dont believe if they have no proof though.I would probably be the same.
