[This was in reply to: Do you believe in god?"]
Yes, because of Jesus. We can know without doubt that the Gospel records give an accurate summary of his life and teachings (textual criticism/ confirmation from other contemporary documents). He made many claims to be God:
I and the Father are One
He who has seen me has seen the Father
Before Abraham was, I am.
Only God can forgive sins (and Jesus did)
Only God can calm the storm (and he did)
Now if Jesus made these claims there are three possibilities:
1)He was lying- in which case, he was not a good person, not a good teacher
2)He was a lunatic- I might as well follow The Great Poached Egg
3) He was who he said he was :Lord and God.
