I believe in God. Here's why. 

 I understand the universe and life to be the product of three fundamentals.
Mass, energy, information.
That's nature. More than ever, in our Information Age we should understand how these three interact. 
'No God' basically asserts that information arose out of mass and energy.
Just do the math and look at reality. It doesn't seem to add up.
It seems to make more sense that information and energy came first, then mass. Of the three, mass appears to be the most fabricated. Energy organized into division upon division and well packaged boundaries. Remember information is neither energy or mass. 
An example of how information interacts with mass is a computer file. 
No matter how big the file is, the mass of your computer remains the same.
That file could be transferred to print on paper, a CD or your ipad. The information is identical, but the platforms change. The mass is just the medium that carries the information. 
Isn't it true that the role of life is to gather, decipher/ organize and transmit information so as to improve the quality of survival? This is true in the assembly of organisms, ecosystems, and functioning societies or relationships. Through this process mass can be replicated with appropriate updates to improve function and maintain harmony.
In order for information to be passed on you need a sender and receiver. Where is the original information coming from? Who or what is the original sender?
It seems very plausible to me that all the information was in existence from the start, and its flux has been in its ability to organize itself appropriately.
Operating manuals and assembly instructions are the genetic codes that dictate how the factory organizes and assembles the parts. This leads me to my second point.
In order for information to get passed on you need language. Language infers intelligence.
 Syntax, grammar, punctuation, semantics, and agreement. DNA has all these characteristics. DNA is the platform that carries the information. Here's the dilemma with RNA occurring naturally. You need proteins to create RNA, you need RNA to synthesize proteins. 

My second point for a belief ( not to be confused with a definition for) God is nucleus. The universe is set up on the principal of nucleus. Galaxies, solar systems, planets, atoms.
Your God is just the primary nucleus that you revolve around. Your Ego might be your God.
A persons worldview seems to improve when you willingly orbit around something a little more cosmic than your tiny situation or quest for self promotion.
This does not mean you have to cater to a belief system that tries to define what God is. There is God made, and then there is man made. 

My disclaimer to this point of view and some of my statements: I'm not a scientist, I'm not an expert anything. I do however have a few questions and a handful of observations and interpretations. I try to stay flexible in my conclusions.

I love this. It makes so much sense. It just puts everything perfectly into words - like an explanation of why there has to be God. I don't consider myself religious, but I do believe in God and order and perfection. So thanks for this ^^

That's encouraging to hear, not in the sense that my ideas are outstanding, (most of what I wrote was borrowed from apologists, whose views I thought were convincing), but in the sense that I was able to paraphrase in a way that got the ideas across. Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks for sharing your theory. Actually, reading this blog post rang a bell and evoked an old memory. When I was in my sophomore year in Fine Arts college, a classmate of mine named Olga died in a late-November mountain trip that went terribly wrong. Anyway, about 40 days after the accident, she came to me in my dream for three consecutive nights. It came as a surprise, at that we’d never been particularly close or something. In my dreams we talked and she was kind of saying bye to everyone in our class using me as a medium. And just before she left my dream, she asked me to get the following message to everyone after I woke up: «Первоначально была не частица, а энергия» («In the beginning, there was energy, not a particle»). Amazing coincidence, huh?

Yeah, that's very interesting. That leads to a third point. There is tons of evidence to suggest that we are spiritual beings, that there is something that ties us together like a giant web of fabric. I had an interesting encounter last month with an entity I would describe as extra dimensional. It had no resemblance to either an angel or demon. My wife saw it as well. The energy thing is interesting. If all this is energized mass then that leads to a number of difficult propositions. Energized information , or organized energy seems to fit better. Nasser Haramein who won best paper proposed a holographic universe theory, Steven Hawking discribes the mass of the universe beginning at size smaller than an atom. So what if all mass is, is energy organized into units that are organized into larger units? I don't think it's a new concept.

Thanks for your thoughts. I'm interested in hearing different interpretations on the subject. Especially the ones that have moved beyond religious paradigms.

Great points
I do believe in God though my interpretation isn't this scientific. I do agree how you relate it to mass such as in computer hard-disk space, that makes more sense.

Basically I think that the nature and its system itself is a proof that there's a God. God is the source of all, the system that maintains the nature, yet he is also the end. To me, God isn't a bearded figure with robe, standing in the sky and telling us to do good deeds. Instead, He/She might be "a series of working system in the nature". This also includes some random unexpected thing such as luck, unlucky, and fate (coincidence?) that sometimes just magically happens in the right or wrong moments.

That being said, beards can still be pretty awesome.
