just wondering,... do the skeptics have a problem wih a christian who adhears to a particular religion as a "belief system" knowing full well that the basis for christianity is bunk,.. but the history and beauty and even the romance of it are appealing enough to draw.
if i'm intelectualy honest enough to admit its bunk,... but valuabe bunk,...can the skeptics swallow that?
if i honor the system and refrain from tearing it own for the sake of true believers,... will the faithfull question my faith?
dumb concept i know,.... but i'm bored today.
and faith oviously has no connection to spelling prowess
Personally, I don't care if skeptics have a problem with my belief system. Criticism from those who disagree with me is meaningless drivel.
No one needs to defend their beliefs if they accept them as expressions of all of the noble, caring, nurturing aspects of their humanity. Their tenets become symbolic metaphors for all of the facets of life that science and intellect has not YET explained. What really matters is recognizing the value of one's beliefs for how they represent and serve you in life.
P.S. Boredom is a self-inflicted malady. Take it from me. I'm Chairman of the Bored.

It is my contention that the Christian religion (and specifically following Christ) is guaranteed to cause conflict, wars and ill will.As proof - I cite the last 1800 years - including the hubpages forums as evidence. Not only are these forums littered with arguments between atheists and believers,...

As a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Catholic, Jew, Jehovah Witness, etc is your job to convert someone you deem a non-believer? Do you think as a representative of your faith that you are supposed to convert non-believers and all others who do not believe what you think? If so, why? If not, why? Or...

How does a person form their belief systems in the first place? Why are people unwilling to change their beliefs when there is good reason their beliefs are false ie "I still believe anyway".Do belief systems rule our lives?

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...
