Do you believe in God?

  1. May 31, 2007 #1
    Most people ask me to define God when I ask if they believe in God, so I'll define what I mean by God.

    Carl Sagan said he believed in God as in a higher power, meaning the laws of physics controlled him but he had no control over them. Hawking said he does not believe in a personal God but "the embodiment of the laws of physics", which sounds exactly like what Sagan meant. I do not mean this type of God.

    Creator: Do you believe a conscious being created the cosmos? If so, do you believe that same conscious is still conscious?

    Thanks for any insight!

    I'm Agnostic.

    Where is your definition of "God?"

    Just a reminder
    Me: brain says no, but the body doesn't believe the brain. I think its just muscle memory from my upbringing.
