Yes, I believe there is a higher power.

1. Not to value and employ men of superior ability is the way to keep the people from rivalry among themselves; not to prize articles which are difficult to procure is the way to keep them from becoming thieves; not to show them what is likely to excite their desires is the way to keep their minds from disorder.

Not just a higher power, but a Supreme Creator of the universe, one who can be called God.

Why? There are plenty of things that cant be seen by our eyes...

And what if you lose an eye? Will you then disbelieve everything?

I believe in a higher power, but not God.  Nature, not just of this Earth, the whole Universe is my higher power.

Hi Lonely; I agree.  I believe in God, but feel it's so important to keep an open mind, as new things about our origins and the universe are being uncovered as time goes on.

Absolutely!

One of the main reason's I believe in a higher power is because of the absence of transitional species in the fossil record.  If Darwin's theory is correct there should be a superabundance of transitional species in the fossil record...there are none.

*Sigh*

You really have no clue what a "trasitional species" is, do you? I'd debate with you, but I really dont feel like debating against a website, because I'm quite sure all you'll do is copy and paste text from some website with a name similar to "www.darwinism-is-crap.com" and claim it to be fact, and unfortunately you wont learn a single thing from my effort.

Let me ask you, what evidence do you have of a higher power?

An omnipotent sentient being (or beings) that created or manages the universe? Absolutely not.

An unintelligent, abstract force that surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the universe together? Possibly.
