Believing in God vs. Knowing and Understanding God

I wanted to explain to you all how I perceive God.

I do not consider myself religious, because being religious requires one to have a belief or faith of some kind. This, while admirable, also very dangerous as it is pretty much blind faith. This is not the case with me.

When people ask me, "do you believe in God", I tell them - NO. I do not BELIEVE in God.

Instead, I tell them that I KNOW and UNDERSTAND GOD. This is a completely different approach toward this whole God issue.

For me, God is not the matter of faith - it is the matter of reason, logic and common sense. This means that I know and understand God. Why would I believe in it? I already know that it is the truth.

Here is a good analogy: "Do you believe in mathematics or physics?" or "Do you understand and know mathematics and physics?" Do you see the difference now?

So while I can say that I believe in God, I would rather say that I KNOW and UNDERSTAND God. It is not an issue of faith for me anymore. I do not need faith to know and understand!!
