I agree that there are many who question the existence and origin of God. But,then teh alternate qusetion which arises is that who made the human beings and everything that surrounds them, There must be someone who made the sun, moon, stars, trees and animals. In addition to it, it has to be one supreme power who designed the whole universe and make them work in synchronization with one another. As an answer to all these questions, we name this Supreme or Supernatural power as God.
It is just a matter of faith. There are many who have a strong belief in God and state that they can even communicate with him. There are many who seek guidance and ask for help from his on daily basis. So if something is trusted by so may people it possibly holds some existence.
Yes, you are very correct in mentioning faith on having to believe in the existence of God and religion is one of the core principles to having one believing in God or not. Talking about God, believe me that the concept of God isn't a singular myth for all people. There are several gods in existence depending on one's religious beliefs and point of view. Christians believe in the Trinity in one God - God the Father, Son and The Holy Spirit, Muslims believe in Allah, monks believe in Buddha etc.
So therefore, one's belief and faith is what guides him or her into believing in one form of a God or another and it's very hard to change someone's faith and beliefs. Trying such might result in serious conflict and possibly a fight that would result in spilling of blood.
As I earlier said, it is just a matter of faith. We humans beings see and analyze things the way we feel and think about them. Our feelings are completely ruled by our thoughts. If we trust the existence of something then we start looking at the things in the same direction.
I respect all those who do not believe in God. It is just their thoughts and views. But for me, my God is my mentor, teacher, guiding light and so on. I have trusted him many times and he has proved himself worthy of my trust always.
In as much as with the way things are in the world today, that sometimes I tend to have my doubts about the existence of a spiritual being called God because sometimes a lot of things are allowed to happen to the good people when there is a God who is supposed to looked after their well being. It's as if good people suffer more than the bad one, and there is a God who is supposed to care for them.
