Everybody has to believe in something!

Folder: 
PHILOSOPHICAL SS

i pit my logic against my faith

pondering which is the more unreliable? 

The more healing, 

inspiring,

Guiding,

exciting, 

grounding, 

satisfying 

i have since come to the conclusion 

that my faith is infallible 

because Pluto was once a planet 

the earth was once flat 

and maybe again 

sims simming sims 

artificial life is soulless 

only capable of proxy compassion 

based on irrelevant perfect logic

trying to usurp my perfect faith 

based on no logic.

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

What makes a atheist better than a believer? What's the difference agnostics? in another realm? And you can completely reverse this question and find yourself no further along. What is good and what is bad may seem by collective agreement. It isn't. That's culture. That's religion. Religions are systems designed for preservation. Spirituality is different this is where good and evil converge and are completely inseparable it is said as the ying and yang emblem suggest that both are corruptible and each had the potential to manifest or become the other. Faith in concrete terms is a juxtaposition and an oxymoron. Evidence supersedes faith but is limiting faith supersedes evidence and is liberating. Faith makes you to doubt your world and search for more. evidence makes you doubt your faith and stop believing there is more. Faith use never be confused with systems which are curtailing and controlling. Evidence should never be grounding or drawing lines or walls. The biggest sadness is the loss of respect for others and our differences. You don't have to be taught right from wrong you can sense it, see it, touch it, taste it, feel it. But it seems evidence and systems are hell bent on corrupting our natural understanding of this. What if we all decided regardless of belief what is inherently good is good for all and bad is good for only some. A simple logic. But could it really be that Simple?

Nothing In Philosophy Is Simple

Nor will it ever be simple. Each of us is different - the miracle is that in spite of difference in factual based living or god based faiths, we build and grow and survive (the 3 biggies). Respect is not really required, just suspend anger for a spell (build grow survive) then go back to being whatever you practice. It is how humans roll and WE ARE AWESOME! We are. - slc
