Do you believe a God exists? posted 17 March 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

yeah...that's kinda the retarded thing about faith...it really goes against rational thought and intellectual...anything...that we can understand. Idk if religiosity is somthing inherent, but I think faith is somthing pretty universal. Not necessarily faith in a god or gods or a supreme being or the supernatural or whatever. But just faith in general is somthing that seems to define &quot;world born&quot; men. Like when you put your money in a bank, you generally have faith that, unless you buy somthing, that money's gunna stay there. But you have no real way of knowing that it will cuz the possibilities are endless. The dunyain, of course, know almost all the possibilities and even the most likely among them and so they've ruled out the need for faith. I guess what I'm saying is faith is somthing that we need (unless you're dunyain), despite what it's in. Sorry, again. I'm not trying to impose my beliefs on you, I'm just confirming to myslef what I believe, I guess. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> Yeah, it's stubborn, it doesn't listen to reason, but when it comes right down to it, faith just makes sense of a world were the only absolute is uncertainty.

And gierra, I can tell you're a really nice, loving person just talking to you, and no, believing that some dude was savagely murdered doesn't make anyone better in anyway and there is no reason that you should. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> but believing that it happened, again, goes back to the whole faith thing... view post
