I want to go somewhere instead of the ground whether it be reincarnated or sent to some after life. And also the feeling of something being out there is comforting at times. So I tend to live my life as I see fit. I can't be blamed for that can I?
Faith can be comforting which is why I don't really criticize it. I was a christian for 16 years, and I believed in the fully. It felt great believing there was life after death. When I put logic in the picture however things changed. I don't make fun of someone when they believe in something like that, because I know it's comforting. But when they shove their religion in my face and tell me it's the absolute truth, I have no sympathy in their childish beliefs. I wouldn't venture to say that the god of the bible exists, but maybe a supreme being of some sort. Of course I have no proof of this, I'm just saying it's possible. Faith can be good, for some people at least. Confusing faith with facts and logic however can be detrimental to this world. Religion has created more problems than it has fixed. I just challenge people to live their life and live everyday like it's the last one. Sometimes I think at the end of the day if I had died that day would I feel like I lived that day to the fullest?
