      up to you. arguments ultimately based on faith, but science is observation-based and so god can’t be corroborated with repeat measurements.

      There is no way to prove or disprove the existence of God, so we cannot say either way.

      As James says, it’s a matter of faith.

      This varies from person to person and depends on their definition of ‘god’, and is usually based on belief and circumstantial evidence rather than proof. A science based approach requires testing and evidence, but is not always possible. Just because a theory cannot be proven, doesn’t mean that it is wrong and just because a theory cannot be disproven, doesn’t mean it is correct. My Dad claims God is the laws of physics, the energy and rules that make up all the universes. My Mum believes in a traditional Christian God. I would describe myself as an atheist with an open mind because while there is no evidence for the existence of a God, there is much we do not understand about our world universe and space as we do not have the understanding or technology to find out.

      What do you mean by god. As Sandra said, the concept of god is more or less subjective and like the guys said very much faith dependent. Believe it or not it is probably one of the most controversial and complex concept that has no clear definition that we all can agree to. Hence, have faith be it in god or a bottle of water! It is same thing to me if you look at it as something that gives you hope, will and power to drive through your life and its phases. Moreoever, believe in yourself, there’s no greater faith than one in yourself.
