I also don’t believe in God over science. I don’t think that science will create a blueprint , or any kind of signature that is going to be a direct link back to God. But I still believe the beauty of nature, the beauty of ecology, and how all the laws did come together is a byproduct of the creator. To me that’s faith.
As others have mentioned experiences with God defines it as well. But even then, even with prayers being answered and unlikely coincidences popping up that could be explained away or the fact that Buddhists, wiccans, and Muslims all also have these same experiences. I pray that my fiancée will be safe despite some kind of terrible situation and she comes out safe and I praise God. Another leaves a fruit offering for fairies and the same thing comes true.
This is what I see. A beautiful world full of lots of amazing things. I see people’s life’s being changed for the better, including my own, with Jesus becomes their teacher and I see how the love of God helps transforms people. I place my faith in God over it. I can’t what if all the time. I was born in Iran would I have became a Muslim based off of the same experiences? Impossible to say. I know people born in Iran that despite all cultural statistics and expectations became a Christian. I know white Americans who were republicans that went to jail and found Allah and came out of prison and are happier , kinder, healthier people. So it’s impossible to say.
What I do know is that I believe in God and choose to believe in God based off of faith. Sure I see God in gaps, and I see God in unlikely coincidences, and I see God in the life of other people and I choose to attribute all those things to God.
