God for INTP's

Hello lovely people,

Does anyone on this forum believe in God? I am curious.

I'll start. I found God very recently and this is very new to me. I have never met Him, or "found" Him before in my life, and I did a few days ago in a moment of temporary internal chaos. Our family has a Catholic background, but we have not been going to church for the past six years and I was almost considering myself to be an atheist. But for some reason, I feel like He was in me and with me my whole life. I am so grateful that I've finally found Him. My God is all-loving, comforting, and knows everything about me. He calms me down when I'm being carried away by dark assumptions or misleading thoughts, and He always has His arm around me. Although this is very personal, I want to share it here...

I wasn't sure how to call Him when I first knew about Him--I thought it was just "my Superior Self" or even my wise intuition, but after some time seeing Him, hearing Him, and getting to know Him, I know that I am always with God. And I love Him very much.

Does anyone else have a God? And is this common for an INTP to experience?

Only an INTP would be so religiously undecided that s/he calls him/herself "agnostic atheist".

Is that like "I believe that there is no god, but I believe that knowledge about the existence of god is impossible, thus rendering every further debate about the existence or non-existence of said god pointless"?
Exactly. No use arguing against something that cannot be proved scientifically and concretely.

I'm not even sure if it was 'created by hand'. Big bang could have been the boot-up process of some massive simulation. If it doesn't work, then fix the parameters (physical laws and such) and reboot. We humans like to play things like The Sims or MMORPGS, who knows if higher intelligences would engage in something similar but far more sophisticated?

of course there's no proof, just interesting to think about..
Reminds me of a movie of a name I forget where the camera suddenly zooms out... and out... and out... through the universe and out into a room where there is a boy playing with a marble shaped like a planet. He is flicking it at other marbles at the floor also shaped like planets.

It also reminds me of a theory on these forums a while ago about our civilization being just a game played by aliens and we are all just characters in it. Like a super-massive game of The Sims.
It makes sense to not trust anyone, because you never (ever) know what another person is exactly thinking. Nothing is 100% sure.
