“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” ― Tony Robbins
"Your Thoughts Are Either Creative or Destructive..."
Very true... This is why it is so important to believe in Reality and what is provably true. They say Faith is a gift. No, I say Faith is based on Knowing.
There is positive belief which ultimately make the man whole and thus he lives
and there is negative belief (doubt)which divides the man and thus he dies.
What is belief based on, Kess… you don't have to answer: I know for you, Belief is a given … So, maybe faith-based Belief is a gift, as well.
Better question: What is knowing (the truth) based on?
Truth itself cannot be based on any other thing, for that thing will be the Truth.
Truth is self existent and self evident....This is why it is absolute.
Truth is existence, Love, Life (Consciousness),knowledge, Belief (which is faith)
Falsehood Exist as hate, death, unbelief ( which is doubt) ignorance.
none of these belong to existence.
The word faith is used by both the knowledgeable and the ignorant.
And each define it according to himself.
So to the believer, Faith is knowledge, which is life eternal.
To the unbeliever Faith is ignorance, which is death eternal
For knowledge to be knowledge it must incorporate the understanding of ignorance.
And if not then it will exist as ignorance itself.
Ignorance is just that totally ignorant.
In the end knowledge must exist as Love, otherwise
it is self deception and is ignorance.

Does belief require something to be a known (to know) to exist? Does to know something mean there is belief (rather than simply suggest) that it exists? If there are more than a singular known existing as truths, then does a belief system exist? If a belief system truly exists then can practicing...

I wrote a hub on how faith is not required in order to be an atheist. Someone requested that I turn it into a forum thread as well. My position is that atheism, by definition, is the lack of a belief in a god. Therefore, faith is not required. The common dismissive quote is...

Are we too dependent on technology? Cashiers now cannot even count back change without a computer telling them how much it is. Went to a restaurant and they would not serve me because their computers were down. Seriously. They could not even open the registers.Computers are gathering more and more...

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

I am really interested in what would make a non-believer - believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ. Do you base your belief on what you see? On the fact that this is what your parents believed? Or do you have faith which is in what is not seen.

Is it through our beliefs that things manifest into being?Does God exist because we have such faith in him and that faith gives him life? Our belief system not only effects our reality and how we interpret things, but I feel that faith can create a living intity. Looking to the Greek...
