Hello there everyone, I'm new to this forum so I would like to say hi to everyone. What I'm about to write is based solely on what i believe...any
comments would be great, thanks.
Alright, I have been brought up a Christian and come from a religious Italian background...however, the past few months have been very hard to accept
what i really want to believe. I have been told over and over again that God is the one who created us, gave his life and suffered for us. The
'bible' proves this for all those who are in doubt. The thing that really gets to me is why we cant we know more about our creater (if there is
one), or why cant we know where we came from. Im sorry if you're all confused, but there are so many thoughts racing through my mind about this
I have come to the conclusion that i may be a solipsist. I know i exist but i cannot know for sure that you all do. Everywhere i go now, whether its
to the park to walk my dog, dirivng down the street...or just sitting at home....I am constantly thinking about my existence and that of others. More
importantly, im trying to understand if what i see around me is real.
This might get a little out of hand, but please bear with me on this. One of the reasons why i believe this is because everything in my life seems a
bit too convienient. For example, I (we) are able to talk to one another through a piece of plastic and wires.....we watch and learn things from a
bigger piece of plastic that emits colours...how can we believe this? How can i make sense of this? Sure you can get all scientific and explain how
wires work with one another and stuff, but try to think more on a philosophical level instead of a scientific one.
Anyways, there might now even be a point to this...I just wanted to get my views across. Im just a man who lost his belief in religion and is about
to lose faith in everything. There has to be an answer...but what?
