112. This atheist believes "God" exists
There is no denying that "God" motivates people. Everyone is subject to it's influence. Entire countries fight wars, people commit murders, cultures adopt ideas about it that influence the lives of all who participate for better or worse. I don't believe, but I acknowledge that the fact that my family and many friends behaviors are driven by their beliefs influences my life.

Whether God exists as an entity or simply an idea is not an argument worth having. For many people it provides comfort and encourages them to keep their consciences in check. People deserve respect for their beliefs.
