What is faith?
Posted 11/14/06
What is it that causes us to search out a rhyme and and reason for our being? That we create deities to validate our own existence , and to ease the fear of death? Why is it that we so whole heartedly give ourselves to these thoughts ,instead of putting our faith where it really belong , in our selves and each other ?

What are your thoughts and opinions on this?

Same thing. You should just post in the other religion thread since it's since turned into a General Religion Debate Thread.

Wait a minute, what is faith? and, why do we need religion? are very broad questions and I think they should be considered different. So which one is it?

It is not the same. The ones befor where always a set of beliefs and morals this has neither. I tell some people in this country do not know how to read.

Really i dont belive we as humans need faith. All faith does is always lead to morders and wars. People live for there faith and kill for there faith. Altough it is just there toughts and no real proof that it does exsit. If there was proof there was one faith everyone would belive in it. The reason it does exsit is an atempt to give the people of this world a set morals scale. I mean think about it. Even if we dont say that is the said reason why we belive this is right and this is wrong it is still in there.

Faith and religion, while going hand in hand with each other, are two seperate things, so this thread stays

That's because Japanese people have no souls.

HA! agreed!
everyone knows azns are all robots. (no one is that good at math!)
and thus have no souls.

which means all those animes and video games (like FF7, or evangelion for instance) is just their atempt at trying to understand OUR limited grasps of reality, and how maliable reality really is to organic life forms ;)



anyways back to the topic question
the reason we have faith and religion is because we are deeply too simplistic to understand a billionth of a fraction of what our reality really is, so instead of admiting to oureselves our limitations we make up excusses like religion and science.

religion in that it simply makes up the answers for you, as long as your happy with the result why bother asking how you got the answer?

and science in that it offers the posiblity of an answer to the questions that plague us.

either way the problem is solved because you no longer have to think about it any more, it is taken out of your hands.

we dont need religion
humans created dieties as a sort of scapegoat in times of trouble
wouldnt it be so much easier to say that the gods were restless and angry than to realize that somewhere down the line, you fucked up pretty badly?
and im sure there were more ways religions could be brought about
