I believe in life and that each of us is connected by whatever the life energy inside us is. You could call that god, or light or something else if you want.

I've thought that sorta thing for a while, which I put into a blog post. Ages ago.

I clicked strongly doubt (or whatever the wording was) but now I think about it it's more like don't believe at all.

I beieve in absolutely every god ever and also do not  believe in any of them.....I do believe in a universe where everything is interlinked, interconnected and interspatial, that time is highly fluid and subjective and that so is reality

I believe in a God. I don't think that things in the world were just created by accident.

I don't believe in a god; however, if some undeniable evidence was shown to me to convince me that indeed there is/are a god/gods, I would most certainly believe he/she/it/they is/are deists.

Unfortunately most believers of any particular faith would immediatly point out that the eveidence is everywhere you just are not looking at it right.

They'd be missing the "undeniable" part if they did though - you need to make a lot of assumptions for the evidence currently available to lead you to only one possible conclusion.

they could counter claim that no evidence is undeniable and then start on about Truth

Which is one of the (many) reasons why I don't listen to them anyway.

a very good point... although i actually enjoy winding up street preacher types that try to convert me..... having a good working knowledge of ancient myth and biblical history can be fun!

I also enjoy a good debate, but the thing is that the types of people with whom you could have a good debate that didn't become a name-calling/hell-sending parade are so few. And even the ones that are there often times don't care if you believe in a god or not, they'll just respect you anyway, as you will respect them.

The true fanatics are the ones who will try to convert you and save your soul from the pit of damnation or something and, unfortunately, you can't have a good, rational and logical debate with them because reason has no actual place in these people's lives.

Hope I don't sound too presumptuous, I'm not stupid enough to believe I understand of everything and that my word is the last and the only one that counts, it's really just the way I personally see it.

I'd be fine with them claiming no evidence is undeniable - I'd pretty much claim the same thing (and almost added it to my previous post).  It'd support the "not seen enough evidence" stance at least as much as the "the evidence is there if only you'd see!" stance (if no evidence is undeniable then any evidence of divinity is deniable and therefore divinity is not a foregone conclusion).  I'd happily rattle on with them about Truth too, so long as the conversation remained civil and reasoned.

Nobody's ever tried to convert me though - if anything the atheists I've met have been more forceful with their beliefs than those following a religion (who have mostly just taken the "you believe what you believe and I'll believe what I believe and lets leave it at that" approach).  Although I did once experience a Jehovah's Witness try to convert my co-worker when we were working on a reception desk (council county buildings); I felt kinda disappointed at being passed over for conversion.
