Either no God, or the God of deists, based on observations in everyday life.

To all these stupid questions, why doesn't the poster ever give his opinion first?

Yes, I do belive in God, it's simple, look around you. Do you think ALL that happened by a big bang or whatever? I don't. There had to be a creator.

The poster gave his opinion by the way he worded the question:

Do you believe in God? Answer yes or no, and go on to explain why.

In asking the question this way, the poster reveals that he assigns a specific identity to God; Like if I asked, "Do you believe in Shaquille O'Neal?"

Uhm no.

I don't believe in God, but I could just ask easily ask that same question in the same words.

Interesting application of Occam's Razor...

So then, what religion/denomination's God is he talking about?

But the key is, generally... You wouldn't.

Your non-belief would cause you to lean away from assigning a specific identity to "God", referring instead to a "deity" or "a God".

I'm not attempting to sound grandiose, only to point out something that people can use later on to hear one's opinions in their own questions. The way they phrase their questions indicates their expected answer.

Or so says Psych 101...

Because they don't want to poll to seem biased.

Oh, you're Jewish? Or Muslim? Or Christian? You didn't answer much there.

And actually, you're supposed to spell any deity's name with a capital first letter according to proper English grammar. That includes Satan, Allah, etc.

Hehe... Were that an honest question, I could offer an educated guess for an answer.

But since it was a sarcastic potshot, I'll say simply that you can't extract that specific of information from the question the original poster asked. This isn't tea leaves, it's the real science of human interaction.

Yes you're right generally you wouldn't but there will always be people who believe in him so when speaking I dont see anything wrong with a nonbeliever referring to God in such a way, not to mention you might prossibly offend people by saying "a god" or "a deity" rather than just "God" so since it doesn't matter to me I'd be more inclined to be polite about such a matter.

The person who started this thread could have just as easily been a nonbeliever.

Quick making assumptions.
