    If you end up being totally wrong about everything you believe, what will the repercussions be?

    Faith is important, but let's play "what if" for a moment-- if you suddenly knew, without a doubt, that everything you believed was completely false.... what would change?

    I don't indulge in "what-if" scenarios. If it happens, it happens, and that's just life, and now I gotta roll with it. No use worrying about things you can't control.

      Good point! "Do not worry about tomorrow-- tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own."  °o°

    For me, the change was instantaneous and felt like a great weight had been lifted off of my shoulders!
    I had always struggled with believing in God while also observing the harm that religion does to people. When it finally dawned on me that there was no "god", all my questions finally had logical answers!
    So, the repercussions for me were very positive and I learned to grow up and get on with my life instead of believing in magic gods in the sky, or Santa Claus, or health care by prayer.
    Religion insists on telling people how to THINK. It's when people learn to think for themselves that issues are solved.

      I find what a pastor named Rob Bell said about atheism to be compelling: "When an atheist tells me about their idea of what they think God would be like, I realize something: I don't believe in THAT God either."

      I cannot find that quote, but it doesn't make much sense anyway. As an atheist, I have absolutely no idea what you think god is like, and I doubt you do either, even as a believer. If god existed there would not be so many variations of a god or gods

    If I knew for a doubt that everything that I believed was wrong, I would just find out why it is wrong and what is "right" and move forward.

    Belief is not knowing for a fact, so I would not get too distrubed.  I see so many things change in terms of what is presented by the "educators" as correct information, so I would not worry. 

    At one point the world was flat for some people, when others knew it was round.  Human beings have fallible senses, they are not perfect, in addition, some people like to try to manipulate the world we live in so it is not so easy to know for a fact what the absolute truth of things are.

    Personally, I just know that I exist and I have a relationship with the cosmos as part of existence, and I do the best that I can based on what I know at present. I will the best for all and I keep moving. My spirit is eternal.

    Best wishes.

      I agree-- the spirit is eternal, the rest is simply "costume," the stuff we put importance in but will one day return to dust in the earth anyways. °o°
