Love, Religion, and the Unerring Truth

8 November, 2002 (22:49) | Religion

Tonight, I was given a chance to share the company of several lovely ladies. Sadly, I know every one of them would decide not to date me on the basis that I don’t share their belief in god.

I’m envious of the faithful. The ability to blindly accept what you have been told is something I wish I had. Too often have I looked for reasons which only turned out to bother me as much as the answer. Hence, I am without faith. If I could have faith, I would, but it’s just as bad to let blind following rule your life as it is to ignore instincts and gut feelings.

I don’t understand how someone can pass up a chance for happiness, love, success, or any other meaningful goal in their life simply because their blind faith doesn’t jibe with it. Sure, it’s nice to be able to rationalize on the basis of an afterlife, or make a decision based on the falsified (or misinterpreted) writings that were supposedly passed down from a supreme being, but allowing yourself to be ruled by a god is no different than giving in to the will of slavery, or even a nationalism that we’re experiencing now, much in the same way Germany did prior to the Nazi regime.

I’m not saying that faith and religion will lead to genocide, or any other “sin,” but that blind faith is as much a curse as a blessing. Faith is not enough to make this world good, and to deny those who will sweep the gutters to make it a better place simply because of their religion or lack thereof is not only prejudiced, but blind… the dangerous part of blind faith.

  • I would rather be without faith (as I am) than with faith in a place where I was unable to question my actions and the actions of others. Without the ability to question, we aren’t given the ability to achieve answers.
