Finding a place in the religious realm is not impossible, however to resolve the issues inherent in searching for faith, surely we must keep an open mind. God Seeker Guy has been accused many times of being godless, however there are some diehards who claim he is spiritual under the sarcastic façade. We shall see.
If we have the rare option of choosing our faith rather than having one thrust upon us at birth, we have a daunting task ahead. All of the world religions demand attention and thoughtful inquiry.
“Blind faith is embraced when logic is abandoned…”
It has been said extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. While some of us claim to make a great soufflé – an extraordinary claim indeed- the proof can be found in the oven, proof of God must be found elsewhere. While there are many recipes for the Divine, how we collect and combine the ingredients will determine whether we create a useful product.
Faith is a strange thing, we’re often reminded that we must believe that our children love us, we must have faith. However this is a love that can be confirmed when we see the smile on their faces when we give them money. God also needs huge amounts of money, but it never seems to be enough and smiles from God are difficult to elicit, wrath is more common.
Blind faith is embraced when logic is abandoned so there must be better arguments for belief than those offered by most religions.
As W.C.Fields once put it: “Everybody’s got to believe in something. I believe I’ll have another beer.”
