Life is too short for all this religious arguments. In reality nobody knows why we're here. Divine involvement or merely by chance or maybe a third
option? What are we supposed to do? Help one another or just benefit oneself?
Now what exactly is religion? Religion at its basic core is a philosophy.This is how I think the world was created and this is how i think happens
Catholics, christians, atheists, etc have no idea what will happen.
So what do we do? People often argue that the source of knowledge should be through science. Research replication etc.
These people forget that science has its limitations. Science can point something out but the interpretation is always inadequate. Think of human
consciousness. what causes it? What makes me "Me" or gives me the ability to think?
Some argue the brain. Now what makes a brain? Atoms, protons, electrons, neutrons, quarks, etc. Can I create consciousness by putting 2 atoms
together? How about three? How about a billion? This in essence is the issue of science. Is conscious at a fundamental level (atoms) or can we put
non-conscious things together and somehow makes consciousness?
Or you could go with the alternative theory of a soul inside a machine but we have yet to prove a soul.
In my opinion, live life and take it easy. If there's a god in the end, great. If there isn't, well we probably won't be able to argue by then
