"At the same time, it takes just as much faith to believe in atheism. To make the absolute statement “God does not exist” is to make a claim of knowing absolutely everything there is to know about everything and of having been everywhere in the universe and having witnessed everything there is to be seen." --- GotQuestions.orgAlso, I hear all the time that since I can't prove that God exists that I should just believe on the off chance that he might exist (see Pascal's Wager).
"We both have faith systems, Robert, because neither you nor I can prove scientifically God's existence or lack thereof. Science means knowledge and nobody was there to scientifically observe creation to "prove" anything, you must take it by faith." --- Pastor HeathWhat nobody can tell me is me how to make myself believe. I get all kinds of advice, but no actual solutions. I base my beliefs on what I know and what I percieve. It's counter-intuitive for me to base beliefs on what I don't know. There's no switch that I can flip that'll make me believe something that I have no proof of.
If I base my beliefs on something that I don't know, then I am worshiping a God of Ignorance. That's not the kind of God that I want to believe in.
