GUEST,John BS: Your Brain, Your Brain on God (392* d) RE: BS: Your Brain, Your Brain on God 30 Aug 11


Gee...

The world of religion that I live in is a world of love, peace and service.

The "ideology" that I subscribe to is in service to those ends. My faith strengthens me when those ends seem elusive and give meaning to my small successes.

Those ends, and the strength to pursue them seem so obviously "good" to me that I don't doubt that we are hard-wired to pursue them. How could we be human and not devoutly wish for these things?

I appreciate that rationality is very precious to many posters and that the resolution of faith and rationality is challenging. My recommendation is to try very hard to resolve them. We have lots of work to do and scarce strength to do it.

God bless.
