Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, my name is Keith. Well I guess I'm just looking for some advice. I regarded myself as an atheist for about 9 years and now after all of that time I find myself believing in God. I accept that the big bang is the event which allowed the universe to be, but science has no answers to what may have caused it. I think such an event like that would need a cause, and I believe some sort of higher being or God is the cause of this. I consider myself as a deist, like many deists I don't believe God interferes with the affairs of humanity and is merely responsible for getting the ball rolling in the creation of the universe. I'm also non-religious as I don't agree with organized religion. But I've been getting a lot of slack form other atheists online about me, converting to deism (so to speak). I'm not sure how I go about explaining to them why I no longer deny the existence of a God. Many of them say I'm using an "argument from ignorance" or use the argument of "god of the gaps". Any advice on how to explain this to them? So maybe they can understand it on some level, while obviously not sharing my beliefs.
