    people believe in god because they A. can't deal with their own mortality B. need meaning or purpose in their life or C. need an explanation for everything,but the fact is humans will never be omnipotent beings...there will always be life's mystery s... that's just how i feel about it... i'm sure there are more personal reasons,but I find that to be the three main reasons.

    Honestly, the reason I believe in God is because I have luck when I have faith. Nothing more.

    I meant religious faith. Faith in general is a good thing for anyone to have.

    Faith is faith though, its still a belief with no proof. Yours is specific to the unfounded belief that there is a god, mine might be just as out there but less orchestrated.

    Faith can be good and bad really, misplaced confidence can be dangerous.
