    Default Faith

    Let's get the disclaimer out of the way.

    This is not a place discuss what you believe in and whether it's wrong or right. This is not a place to belittle the beliefs, or lack thereof, of others. This is not a place to argue about the validity of experienced reality, scientific evidence, revealed truth, or any other source of potential knowledge. It's about what you think and how you feel.

    Great. On to the thread.

    Why do you believe? This is not necessarily about the way the world works or any other single specific thing. If there is evidence that seems to contradict your faith, how do you reconcile it with what you know to be true - or do you try to at all?

    How do you deal with people that put you down for your beliefs? Not simply those that disagree, but those who seem to feel that you are a worse person than they are for thinking the way you do and will take any opportunity they can get to remind you of that.

    What makes you believe in the people around you? Does your faith in friendship, or in family, survive those who betray your trust?

    What sparked this thread is the idea of faith itself. Some stuff that's going on in my life has made me question what I think about the idea of believing in anything at all. I thought it might be interesting to see what others here have experienced and decided.

    I believe nothing at all.

    Science is a working model, so it makes sense to only hold a relative understanding of things, keeping in mind that all things can and are subject to review once new information becomes available.

    I have faith. Faith in myself, faith in priniciples, faith in the unknown (god(s)). But I also believe it is best not to narrow your vision by only believing or only seeking faith.

    Since I'm baffled by how far some people go in the words of someone THEY can't prove ever existed and THEY never met. Well. I'll just believe in me myself and I. I'm in the present I see the world around me. The world isn't what it was like 2000 years ago.Why hang on so strongly to some of the principles and beliefs of that time? I have no idea. If you feel that strongly about it might as well eat meat raw. They did it back then? Oh? Times have changed you say? Doesn't look like it from the way you're speaking.... -______________-

    I'm pretty much one that has no faith and would rather avoid religion like a plague. I live in a pretty religious town and while some churches have some good people, there are some churches with people that make Christianity look like it will make you into a hateful person

    I don't believe in the bible or something like that but I think that life something so big and strange that is has to be a bigger power that atleast have started it all, like giving life a push in the right direction or something like that. There has to be something out there, I just don't know what.

    If history repeats itself, and moves in a circular path, then believing that whatever force is turning it is perfect, is all we can do as we move ahead. Pushed along by forces beyond our control, waiting, for the blade to be swung.
