Can you think of anything that is not bounded by the walls of logic and yet exists?
The secular world is so drowned with the idea that if a thing is not logical, then it most likely is not true. Do you sympathize, or otherwise know of things, illogical, and yet unquestionably and undeniably exists?
yes, actually many things. Firstly your soul. Your feeling, sometimes you feel like you love or hate someone for no reason, sometimes you get upset for no reason.
The belief in god and religion is not bounded by the walls of logic but people still believe in god and that their religion exists.
The Logical ... is the very Limited way, of Understanding ... what is Seen, Described, and Defined by the Seculars, as a purely Material ... Reality.
The Question is ... Can you place your own physical person, in any relevant sense, in the Universe's Physical Expanse' Perspective ... since you cannot deny the Universe' Existential Reality.
So if, you can ... you will realize, you exist as a Speck's Speck, on Earth, which is a Speck's Speck's Specks Speck ... in our Galaxy ...
And if you could look at our Galaxy, one of the Billions, if not Trillions of Galaxies, what constitute the Physically visible Universe, you have some idea of the Physical's Reality !
Now compare your own "Physical" Size, with the Physical Size of the Universe ... and you will find your true bearings ... Because, what you may find, is, your Material Reality ...
Similarly, thats how far, Logics can See ... within man's Self-Drawn Bounds, of Logical disciplines, Sciences, Technologies, and Rationality.
Remember, there is almost Nothing, that Science Knows, or will ever Know ... within Logics ... For Almost the Entire ... Exists Beyond Reason, Material and Rationalities ... Beyond Logics and our Person.
People believe in things like religion where somethings are illogical. I always think about ghosts. The stories creep me out and a lot of people close to me swear they have seen ghosts but I can't say I have so I don't know.
I think it's possible to not understand why something exists, but still think it has a logical explanation. During religious debates, those who believe in a deity often point to things that science has yet to explain. But those gaps aren't proof of a deity, they're just things that we haven't found the answers for yet. The study of science has taken thousands of years to get where it is now and thousands of years from now it will be even more advanced. Religion is just sort of the filler until we have all the answers (though it's doubtful we ever will have all the answers.) Religion is also something for those who either can't, or don't want, to understand scientific answers. In other words, it's a lot easier to say 'god did it' than 'let me take a few hours to explain a bunch of complex theories'.
Have you ever seen your own brain? Are you sure you have one? Have you physically taken a brain out of anyone's head? or do you simply believe the textbooks, doctors, plastic models, etc.
Is there a God? Have you ever seen Him? Does this prove that He's not there? Should you simply believe the Christians, Bibles, books and religious leaders?
Logic is very limited. And everything that's around us cannot be bound by logic. I mean can you explain, even measure your own self and existence? Nobody can and nobody has, right? I would rather like to think that every single thing exists without logic since nothing can really be measured even mathematical equations.
Woow thats a tough one...hmmm...lemme seee....
The wind blows where it will and we all hear the sound of it, yet no one knows where it will go or from where it came. So it is with things that are of Spirit.
Who can explain the wind? I mean all the way back to before the big bang or whatever it was that started everything. The universe contains logic but is not itself contained by logic. Yet here it is...illogical, unexplainable...somehow existential. Explain that!

So many Atheists and Agnostics refute faith/religion with living by logic and reason. But, to be really honest, it is totally impossible.What do you say?

How do you prove anything?!!My conclusion is that NOTHING is really factual or true. NOTHING can be completely proven.......But what say you?

It seems to come up so often, as if faith and logic were mortal enemies. Can you please explain why you see it that way? If you see the opposite, why?Quite frankly, I have NO problem with it.
