I'll put my faith in my paycheck, and not in some "God" fallacy...for unlike God:
My paycheck provides for me.
My paycheck does not hold me to a higher standard than I myself exhibit.
My paycheck doesn't care if I get support from other checks, it isn't vain or jealous.
My paycheck doesn't make promises it can't keep, it is what it is.
My paycheck doesn't care if I "sin" occassionally...in fact, in many cases it facilitates it. Not that I'm a "sinner" by nature...in fact I sin
far less than most Catholic priests
, but you've got to live life while you're here...
That all said, I do have my own spiritual ideas of how the Universe works, but I choose not to accept others' dogmas that determine how I should
live, to appease some fantasy god they made up thousands of years ago... You can be spiritual, without adhering to an established doctrine.
Remember too, the majority of the world's population are Buddhists...therefore, if the bible is correct, then God seems to love only a small portion
of his "children"
