Philosophy is questions that may never be answered Religion is answers that may never be questioned
Do you agree or disagree?
Now, now we can never say that being a non-believer is the only way, that's foolish, It's always been said, you need just as much faith to be an atheist, as you need to be a theist. Your acting a lot like some religious people you don't like, trying to force your belief on someone, you can never prove, nor dis-prove God. Now to the question, the second part of your question is not something I'm going to support. religions have answers that sometimes need to be questioned sometimes, I suppose if you look at the deep answers that religions have, which is that of peace, love, and acceptance, then yea. Those answers can't be questioned, because why would you question peace love and acceptance if what those are going to bring is pure harmony. Now the first part of the question, I suppose on some levels, your right. it's up to you as an individual to solve these philosophical questions for yourself. It's different for everybody.
Everyone has questions, both science and religion have answers.
It is up to every person to pick which of the answers they will believe.
You are never called upon to prove a negative. That is why saying "you cannot prove that God doesn't exist" isn't a valid argument for His existence. You also cannot prove that unicorns, ghosts, and gremlins don't exist either, but that is not in anyway a support for their existence.
If that's true, then I guess that's why I'm very spiritually-minded but have no particular religion. If we cannot question, then our minds are closed. We're virtually saying to ourselves, please don't use the mind that our Creator has given us. Mind you, I think our interpetation of Her, or is it Him...or maybe It, is as greatly affected as we are with questions such as these.
Itsameanoldscene, you'll probably stir up the proverbial 'hornets nest' with this one. Should be good for several pages of answers.
Good on, you, mate. As they say in Australia: "Your blood's worth bottling."
Just to add that I am personally without religion & therefore in my opinion I can think rationally, take different faith's views & opinions on board, listen & try understand & if need be criticise - I find it liberating without the shackles!

What do you feel we seek, by asking questions here on HP? Do you sometimes question our motives?

Why are there so many questions here concerning Christian(or belief in God) vs Atheism?Is this the best platform for discussing these issues and are people really interested in the answers, or is religion vs non-religion just a controversial topic that will attract lots of debate and generate money...
