Subject: RE: What does the word 'God' mean to you?,II
we cross-posted.... and to me "believing in order to understand" goes against everything I feel about being true to my own personal attitudes concerning values and knowlege. It is asking someone to 'buy a pig in a poke' when we can't look in the poke until after death to see if the pig was real or just a myth....and at that point, you don't get to ask for a refund...*wry smile*

It isn't fair, you know....if I am right, I don't get to say "I told you so!" in the hereafter...whereas, you can shake your head sadly at ME forever.
