Do you believe a God exists? posted 31 August 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Deerow, Auditor

While I agree with a lot of your post I wanted to point something out from my own perspective:

While not necessarily one who "buys into" the religious side of the argument, as it were, I also don't "buy into" the scientific one. This puts me in a weird place because I tend to be outcast by both sides as I basically see them as two sides of the same coin.

To explain as quickly as possible: I don't trust either. To me religion is assigning meaning to things we cannot understand the meaning of and science is convincing ourselves that we do understand the meaning of things that we cannot understand the meaning of. So. I dunno. I guess that labels me a skeptical nihilist or something.

Anyone with me on this? view post
