Do you believe in God? Why?

According to students who participated in a study by Sheffield University a few years ago:

  • I'm not sure, but it's comforting to believe.
  • There must be a creator behind such and incredible world.
  • I just do -- I know it.
  • I have a relationship with Him.
  • Because there is more to life than we can understand.
  • Because there is much evidence to suggest that God exists and that everything is under the control of God.
  • "Great are those who have believed yet have not seen."
  • Because things happen for a reason.
  • I was brought up to believe and later in life have found answers to my troubling questions in my faith.
  • My conscience exists; how else if God didn't put it there?
  • I envisage God as a force not as a person.
  • Every religion believes in the existence of God.
  • I've experienced miracles.
  • I feel calm about being assured of salvation.
  • I have a feeling of a "greater presence."
  • God is omnipresent in everybody's life.
  • Hope.
  • I believe something created all this!
  • I believe that he helped me in someway or another in my life to come to the U.K. to study
  • I believe there's someone to look over everyone.
  • I don't believe that there is nothing more than human existence.
  • I have to believe in something!
  • I'm alive, and there has to be something -- though it could be a force of another type.
  • Intuition.
  • It makes sense.
  • It's very hard to explain -- I just do and I always have done.
  • Look out the window.
  • Made up my mind after thinking lots about it.
  • Personal experience, and it makes sense.
  • Personal experience and upbringing.
  • I've seen and felt God's presence in my life.
  • I have seen things that cannot be explained by science.
  • There has to be a God!
  • There has to be something!
  • I used to go to church; I still believe in God, though I don't go to church any more.
  • What else can you believe in 100 percent?
  • Who created us then?
  • Why not?
  • You have to believe in something . . .
