Belief. June 15, 2006

Posted by The Truth in Im Allgemeinen.

I just saw this on a friend’s MSN.

the world is such that people choose what they believe in and they think that they believe in the truth, that’s the saddest thing.

Indeed, it’s the saddest thing. Although it’s probably well-intentioned, i feel it’s sad that you choose to believe that your truth is the truth. I mean…if you say that faith is not believing blindly, then let me ask you this:

What if nothingness awaits you after your death? What if everything you don’t subscribe to turns out to be true? What if Death is really just a kindly woman who will take you by the hand and lead you to another world? You just left everything to your maker and blinded yourself to the possibilities. I mean, it’s security, in a sense, but you have just contradicted yourself in grand fashion.

Indeed, you chose your faith, and you believe it to be the truth. So, are you trying to say that it applies to you too? You can say that evolution is a hypothesis thought up by a philosopher, but to many outside, god is more concept than reality. So how can you prove that God exists, just as a scientist would prove that evolution is true?

You’d probably strike me off as another cynical non-believer who is going to burn in Purgatory for my sins. You’d say you just know he exists, and that’s probably good enough for you. Fair and good. That’s good enough for me too. And although part of belonging to any religion involves spreading the gospel, so that more people can be saved, i hope you don’t do it in such an aggressive sense.

Yes, you can believe what you will. And everyone has a right to that. The thing is that one doesn’t simply go around, shaking the very core of what people believe in by simply declaring that whatever they’ve subscribed to is false. If you’re better off because of whatever you believe in, then that’s all very good for you. Whatever cooks your noodle, as i always say, yes? But that doesn’t give you the right to say whatever is on your MSN nick.

Let me turn everything around for you.

What if…

God intended evolution as a means of purifying his creation? So god and evolution are true. If that is one day proven true, then you must remember that you once denied his truth.

That’s all I have to say.
