Random Ramblings : Religion
Posted by gfaraj on January 30, 2008
Why is everyone so sure about unproven theories? Atheists are completely sure there are no gods; theists are sure that there is a god or gods. In fact, they are so sure, they’re willing to fight and even kill to defend their beliefs.
“Did Sam kill the cat?” I don’t know. “Does God exist?” I don’t know. Don’t be afraid of not knowing, it’s the only state of mind which will allow you to look for the truth.
But how are you certain that you’re right? “It’s called faith, I feel it in my heart.” Yes, I also have faith that tomorrow I’ll win the lottery, but that doesn’t make it true, nor more probable.
I respect everyone’s right to believe in whatever they please; the problem is that you don’t. Why do you have to push your beliefs onto everyone else? Is it maybe because deep-down inside you’re really not sure about your beliefs and don’t want to be the only one. A lie believed by many becomes truth; or so you might think.
Anyways, I think it’s enough for today.
