    I may believe anything, including religion, or God or any mumbo-jumbo. Is that going to benefit me in the end?

      Everything is useful in one way shape or form. Sooner or later we learn.

        It maybe too late before you discover that. It's good if you start to search early.

          Too late? What would we be late for? Have we got a date some where? What are we supposed to be searching for?

      I could not say that you will benefit from believing in something, but at least I am comfortable with my faith.  Is like having that person you love so much; you do not know if at the end you would benefit; but you might enjoy him/her now.

    I suppose it all depends on what you do with it.

        Let me ask you this. Have the conclusions you have come to, surrounding the question of existence, caused you to be a better person?

          It did. Meanwhile it took away so much.

            Then it appears you have answered your question, as it applies to you. Your beliefs have benefited you, so it stands to reason you will still believe that in the end.

              I searched for truth. I got truth. I didn't search for beliefs.

                How did it make you a better person? Do  you think you have the right to influence or tell people what they are to belive? What's the gain in that? Control?

                  If you want to get deliberately influenced, welcome.

                That's very cute. One man's 'truth'  on the cosmic scale is another man's belief. As it has always been. Unless you've got proof. If so, please bring it. I warn you though, attempts have always ended  with the embarrassment of the proclaimed bearer of truth on this site. Maybe you'll be different?

                  I like to play with kids.

                    Good for you.  It would a better endeavor  to play with children than attempt to support this delusional belief that you possess a truth.
