Did people always believe in a Creator?
It is a fact that throughout history and throughout the world, man had been found to worship and to believe in a Creator. Specialists in Anthropology, Civilizations and History are unanimous on this. This led one of the great historians to say: History shows that there had been cities without palaces, without factories and without fortresses, but there has never been cities without houses of worship. Since time immemorial, man believed that he was not created simply for this life, for this short period, and he knew that he would ultimately depart to another resting-place. We see this evidence with the early Egyptians, thousands of years ago, when they mummified their dead and built great pyramids (as graves) and even placed the treasures of the dead in their graves in addition to drinks and mummified food! From the earliest recorded history, mankind had been unanimous, with very few exceptions, that there is a Creator and that there is life aft ...more

There are many reasons as to why ppl doubt the existence of God. There are many religions each contradicting one another about what or who God is. So the Q comes as to who actually is the God? Belief is based on evidence or intuition.

Atheists believe that the idea of God and the associated rites and rules of the religion are man-made and therefore, they think it is more imp. to follow the rules of humanity than the rules of religion. All religion says, do good and u will go to heaven and if you sin you will be punished in hell....but today, we see even the good and truly religious ppl suffering and even small innocent children who dont know abt religion are killed or maimed that one tends to wonder if at all there is a God.

Religion is a personal choice and how they go abt being religious or disbelieving in God is their personal business and we dont have any right to comment on it. As long as we live and let live and not let religion interfere with the humaneness, it is ...more

I have answered this Q here in the forum a thousand times.
I have some faith in GOD or GODlY super power.

But, at times, I doubt his existence when I wonder how monsters like Caligula, Nero, Ivan the Terrible, Zhengis Khan, Hitler, Himmler, Stalin, Idi Amin, Paul Pot, were born right under his nose & allowed to succeed in torturing, mass murdering millions of human kinds - young, old, toddlers alike ?

I also doubt his existence when I see a innocent child with visual imparity (blind) or suffering from acute renal failure (kidney), lukemia or serious mental disorder (spastic).

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem Science has with God, The Almighty.
He asks one of his new students to stand and.....
Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is God good?
Student: Sure.
Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm? (Student is silent.)
Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good? ...more

If the world would have same people with same minds, dont u think, there would have been very less space for development and all round goodwill of mankind.

Bcoz we have different people, so we are all here....if someone is doubting the existence of the Almighty, he is also not sure if there is God or not. In other way, he also believes that, there is a power that is ruling us and our very existence on this universe!

Non-belief in existence of god could be due to several reasons - belief and confidence in self, fearless individual, who is ready to accept pain, hardships, agony and other negativity with equal ease and confidence as he/she would take happiness and other positive moments.

They are absolutely normal human being and nothing is abnormal with them. Theism and Atheism does not make a person good or bad.

Not only do GOD exist but, anyone who believe
and claim otherwise it seriously arrogant, ignorant and
making a serious mistake...why? Because, on one hand,
a simple observation within ourselves and the world around
us shows that there is every indication that there is a designer,
planner and a creator of everything. No coincedance or
evolution theory could change that logical, rational and
sensible conclusion. On the other hand,
NO ONE can prove that GOD does not
exist. So where does that leave us? ...more

I am no one to comment about their faith or unfaith. Only thing I know is not to impose my thoughts abouth the God & religion on others & I would not like if others also try to do so.
