Where do you stand on the existence of God?

Where do you stand on the existence of God?
Hello heathens. Which option most accurately applies to your views?

(Basically it goes from most certain there is no God, to least certain. I am curious to see the answers!)
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

Hmmm... I don't see the scale you're asking us to compare to! So, a narrative response:

I think it very very very unlikely that there is a god. I am almost certain there is no god. I cannot say with 100% certainty that there is no god, just as I cannot say with 100% certainty that I am not a brain in a vat. But I cannot think of anything less likely that is not literally impossible.

Don't worry, my friend.  If this be the end, then so shall it be.

The religious folks have totally failed in their attempts at proving their hypothesis.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Which god?
It is very important not to mistake hemlock for parsley, but to believe or not believe in God is not important at all. - Denis Diderot

I'm in between "I believe there is no God, but there is a possibility I could be wrong." and "I really don't know if there is a God or not, but since I have not yet seen any evidence, I live my life as though there isn't." and answered the poll question choosing the latter.

I have seen no compelling evidence for a god's existence, I've heard no compelling arguments for the existence of a god or gods, I have provisionally concluded that there most likely is no god or gods but I'm not so dead-set on this conclusion that I would refuse to change my mind.

In Dawkins Scale language I would be a solid 6.

It doesn't matter.

I voted I really don't know if there is a God or not, but since I have not yet seen any evidence, I live my life as though there isn't., though I would have to change it slightly to reflect the following:

I believe there is no god, and since I have not yet seen any evidence I live my life as though there is not a god.

I don't support any god that is man made outside of that no one knows if there is a god.
Atheism is a non-prophet organization join today.

6 on the Dawkins scale.

I consider the hypothesis so ridiculous and lacking evidence that I am essentially a 6.999999.

7 is logically indefensible.

I feel the same way about any god that I presume you feel about Thor or Mithra.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
