The ones having faith are the blind ones trying to lead the way.
Quick definitions of «to believe» and «faith».
To believe is accepting an idea, a theory, a story, a statement... as true out of conviction, (sufficient) PROOF not being required.
Faith is an absolute belief. It’s commonly used for the belief in God. It ’s the same acceptance based on (the texts/books supposedly transmitted
through MEN by) a Supreme Being, and its very existence...
Just having said that I’m still chocked to see that one can base is WHOLE LIFE on a concept like this! I still don’t understand how can a sane
person, KNOWINGLY, by a (proud?!) choice, make the decision to say, without laughing: «Yes, my thoughts/«reasoning»/behavior/life is based on
ideas/concepts totally irrational/un-provable… And that’s the best way to go!»
Ok, in fact, and even if they don’t realize it, they do try to make sense of it all, they try to apply logic to their reasoning, to prove that the
existence and the words of (THEIR) God are true…
But it’s bound to fail. Because the concept they base their life upon suppose the opposite of that. It DOESN’T ALLOW critical, logical thinking…
They (not all faithers but those of the 3 big ones for sure) even have a word/concept for that: «blasphemy». Many were burned alive for this
«outrageous» (sarcasm) behavior…
So, what they do is JUSTIFYING, try to DEMONSTRATE the «truth» of their beliefs, of the Bibles STATEMENTS. But in NO WAY they can prove anything
because they would have to be rational/logical and, above all, critical/open-minded for that.
You CANNOT PROVE a concept (faith) which is BY DEFINITION and by their own confession (pun intended) ILLOGICAL!
When will that get in the head of everyone?? For good!
Everyone can see it… But them. And if you try to show them their errors, they will consider you as a Satan’s follower… Seriously! 21st Century,
isn’t it? Do you understand why we need to evolve?
I really would like you to be at least open-minded about ALL the many problems I raised in precedent threads (like: Definitive Proof: God doesn’t
exist Part 1&2).
For you to realize that, contrarily of what faithers believe, the «Holy» books are really not perfectly sound nor of a beyond-human level.
Even to think that, for you, they are beautiful and seemingly ageless is quite difficult for me to understand.
And for anyone not blinded by faith, the Bible and all the other «Holy» books are full of paradoxes, incoherencies. I think I succeeded in showing
The problem being always the same: FAITH. Muslims will see some (incoherencies, paradoxes, mistakes), Jews others, Buddhists more…
They will all see problems in the faith of others but NEVER in their own!
Not surprising… But I hope YOU can see that by NOW.
Only this should, at least, make a faither raise an eyebrow… But No… They sincerely are clueless on how can other religions don’t see their
mistakes but they imagine their own as «clearly superior». Baffling…
I help you again: Well, IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE FAITH OF COURSE!!! Any logical argument you’ll try to present them will be refuted, or simply
politely (or not) dismissed.
ALL faiths are «wrong» by definition! Because none have THE Truth… But they ALL believe they do! And as soon as they have power, they try to force
it on you. Each religion believes that it’s the true one. DON’T YOU GET IT???
That’s what is Faith… The death of any inquisitive, critical mind. The OPPOSITE of what TRUE REASONNING is.
That’s why faith, any faith is simultaneously bad and good for wannabe masters.
Bad because, ultimately, they want a faith that they completely engineered, totally devoted to their «gods» or to concepts so diffuse that can be
used indifferently for helping or enslaving people.
