up above me is a VERY good, well thought out argument against religion. But faith is much deeper than you make out. I believe in God. Now, if you ask me WHY i believe in God i could not even begin to give you an answer, because i don't know. What i do know is that i'm pretty certain that he does exist. And what i like to say to people is that God cannot be proved or disproved. Believers have nothing to lose, because if he is real we have pleased him, and if isn't there is nothing, so we wont know we were wrong
I bet if Jesus came knocking on your door, with the nail marks from the cross, you would believe.
'You believe because you have seen. BlessÚd are those who have NOT seen and yet believe'
THAT is the definition of faith.
