I guess that means we have got to know everything before we know anything. Good luck with that!

I think having blind faith is insanity, but I am open to the idea of a God.

Faith is not blind. The blind have faith.

Yes most of time. I personally do believe I God but sometimes I tend to questions all the things that are happening to me. Especially the times when you experience failure for the things that you really dreamed off then just in a flash it's gone. In the hardships that comes your way and I keep on asking the unfairness in our world. With a lot of sufferings that many people are enduring.

There's compelling evidence that God exists. For instance, the immaculate order in the universe, the design of living things, our brain, etc.

All the time. Especially since as a woman a lot of things in the bible are questionable and heavily depend on context.

I don't as its really clear to me that God is! If what is widely know the God is the Boss of all gods isn't so, why hasn't there been any other author or books to say this person is challenging, they rather did the things that the Bible says its God who says He did them?

Absolutely. I am always confused about the existence of God. Being born in Hindu religious family, I have been exposed to many stories about God's miracles and generosity since birth. But I have always relied upon my own experiences instead of those stories which I was being told.

And I am yet to find my answers.

Questioning the existence of God is a discussion that I try not to get into because nothing can be proven. I oscillate between believing and not. But I do always believe in the existence of a higher power, whatever that may be.

I did question His existence once. But as of today, I can say that I am a solid believer of Him. We don't really need to see Him, we just need to have faith.
