Hi everyone! Let me tell a little bit about myself, I am an ex-Muslim, currently studying at University. I chose to analyze this community for my research project because I can relate so much with the people here, especially those who left Islam (the strictest and the most degrading monotheistic religion out there in my opinion) and also I find this topic to be very interesting. I do not adhere to any religion and unlike some of the theists, I didn’t come here to tell people that my beliefs are right and that the beliefs of others are a load of bs.
So why do I believe that God exists? I think that it is impossible for beings of lower “rank” or intelligence to comprehend the existence and actions of higher beings. For a human to comprehend God is as hard as for an ant to learn at least the basic concepts of quantum physics in my opinion - it’s impossible (it’s a not a good example that I gave here, I couldn’t come up with anything else at that moment, but I hope you got my point ).
I do not deny that it is also very likely that God does not exist at all, but how can we be really sure if it is potentially outside of our comprehension? Surely, outright denying the existence of god is sort of jumping to conclusions without sufficient evidence. Merely because religions turned out to be vain and exposed numerous times as products of human imagination & fantasies, cannot mean that in the “objective reality” there is no God or any other higher deity. Our subjective mental image of the universe has no effect at all on the objective universe, so whether we chose to believe or not to believe in God does not really matter, as beings of “potentially” lower intelligence and existence we may only speculate on this.
Sorry if I couldn’t really type out my thoughts clearly here, English is not my native language, but I tried my best to relay what’s inside of my mind to you guys.
