Do you believe a God exists? posted 01 September 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Deerow, Auditor

Well you pretty much hit the nail on the head with your first paragraph. Science is as much a "leap of faith" as religion is. It just focuses on two completely different types of faith. One is believing in something we cannot see and the other is believing we see something that may not be there at all. I don't feel that either of these options hold more weight than the other, none a more viable option. Either way we're in the dark.

As for you second question I think it may be possible to have some comprehension of the universe. I just think right now we are attempting to do this through two vehicles that are far to involved at looking inside their own little boxes that they can't step out and try to think of another way to go about doing things.

That being said I have absolutely no method of my own. I was raised in a fairly religious household surrounded by friends that were atheists and agnostics...over time I just sort of saw the similarites rather than the differences and now can't really say I belong to one side over the other.

Simplicity just may be the answer. view post
