Existence of God?

For intuitive and critical discussions, from spirituality to theological doctrines. Fair warning: because the subject matter is personal, moderation is strict.

For any christian it is really very unnessecary (and impossible) to proof the existence of God by some rationalist argument, because God's existence ain't knowledge, but belief. And belief is, as Paul defined it, knowing for sure that what you can't see. Or, to put it another way: Credo quia absurdum (I believe it because it is absurd). You might also think of Kierkegaard, who said that faith is something like jumping into the depths if God asks you to, trusting his decision more than your own reason.

I don't say I believe in God, but I don't think the problem is solved by just denying the 'proofs of God's existence'. And I definitely want to KNOW if God exists or not. Any reactions?
