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.
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.
Let me ask you this. Have the conclusions you have come to, surrounding the question of existence, caused you to be a better person?
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?
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?
Good for you. It would a better endeavor to play with children than attempt to support this delusional belief that you possess a truth.
That's adds another belief into your account. Go on.
Do you deny you posted the following statement?
I searched for truth. I got truth.
You don't know what truths I got. Without that knowledge, it's your belief that they are my beliefs.
So, you claim truth but it is my belief that you don't possess a truth simply because you say so. Even though you haven't done anything in this thread to back up your claim, all the while implying that other people's ideas of their truth are mumbo jumbo.
If you think so. Without knowing that, their true nature, it's your belief that they are beliefs. They maybe anything.
Get a life Ms seeker. I am a sockpuppet that's your fourth belief. And that it's all my belief is your fifth belief. Have fun in this gaming website.

If Christianity really is the truth, shouldn't scrutiny demonstrate its truth?All over the place in America, we see believers responding with outrage and defiance when Christian beliefs are challenged or questioned. If the beliefs of Christianity are, in fact, the truth - the only truth, then...

Does it make me close minded if I can't understand why people are atheists?I guess how is the better way to say it.

I have been told that my belief in the Bible and God is a threat to non believers. My question is, How is something you don't believe in a threat to you? If I don't believe in something I don't feel threatened by it.
