Not slamming anyone's beliefs... but no.
I WISH I could... but I just can't work myself into believing it.
I will say this... I have travelled all over the world... and seen amazing things. The majestic fjords in Norway; the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the Arctic...
And even seen beautiful women and thought... "there had to be some kind of "creator" for all of this - it can't have happened by itself."
And... even science can't convince me how EVERYTHING in the universe came from NOTHING.
So I'm... like 80% believing there is a creator.
But believing there is one - even if there is one - doesn't mean he's really interested in us, or in how we live our lives, or even if we believe in him at all.
So you can call me a "searcher" ... I'm still looking for the truth and I will probably still be doing it until the day I die.
Like I said, been all over the world - to every continent, every one. I meet Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddists, Hindus...
Why do they believe in their particular religion? The answer is usually... because their parents did... or someone got ahold of them and convinced them a particular religion was correct. Christians get upset when I say... "If you had been born in Raqqa, you'd be every bit the devoted Muslim!" And Muslims get upset when I tell them they'd either be atheist or agnostic or Christian or Jew if they had been born in America.
As a devoted AGNOSTIC, I have researched about every religion.
The only one that even came close to making sense to me was Hinduism - and even that doesn't make much sense. But at least the ancient Hindus believed in a universe with planets - and some of their legends can be resolved with science with a bit of thought. But still, this isn't by any means enough to convince me.
And... at a certain point... I just say, "hey, if there is a GOD he gave me this intelligence to sort things out". I'm open-minded, doing the best that I can in discovering the truth - if he holds that against me well... whatever.1
