I heard that Scieince proved already that God is possible and essential for the health of the planet because people are not treating it with love and are damaging our creators work.
I sense that there is a God
I can no longer state that God doesn't exist
but that isn't to say that it is the God that everybody perceives to be
There is a creator and we are not alone.
I don't have a mental illness but I do have a disability and feel that saying that someone who experiences many amazing things has a mental illness is very harsh and cold and loveless
Be careful with the ego because we are just humans after all made the same way and it can lead us down the wrong path and away from God.
I have been told to think with my heart but in a sense of gut. My intuition.
I have receieved helpful messages before.

All that list tells me is they knew where the money was to be made.
I don't care if no other atheist exists. I'm not atheist to be part of a group, nor popular. I'm atheist because there is no proof of a god.

Is that supposed to mean something to me? Do you know how many theists have turned into atheists? Either way, it doesn't matter. People believe what they do. I don't believe there is a god. Why is that so hard for others to understand?
