If the Universe as we know it had really just sprung up spontaneously – less likely started as a fantastic, utterly complex blueprint of a project of some powerful albeit crazy maker but rather had the origins of something like a spur-of-the-moment such as a fart – then less complex beings such as you, and I, and the Andromeda galaxy, and the growth of a fetus in the womb, and the unexplained intricacies of the brain, and Love are just mere accidents; concepts that are by-products of an unplanned existence, not really a whole lot different from being illusions.

Insignificant. Purposeless.

And simply because of that (or maybe because of wounded pride to have the same status as a fart) that I am more than willing to believe otherwise – that everything is with purpose, planned, and not just an emission of a swirling chaos the size of, say, a Universe. There may be no proof of our “planned” existence or the seemingly purposeless, heinous offenses happening in this plane of existence, and I remain to have doubts if proof could ever be found or if we could even recognize it if it is displayed in front of our eyes.

But sometimes, sometimes blind faith can defy logic at its prime. Sometimes blind faith seems to be the only thing that could make sense of our seemingly chaotic lives.

Now stone me to cyberdeath.

  1. You know I had a friend who I’d banter about religion with for quite some time, and after pressing him in an argument once he finally told me “You know what, I believe because I want to. It makes me happier and a better person. It may not be true, but it works for me.” I actually respect that pretty highly. As long as it doesn’t harm others and isn’t so stubborn as to impede other good things, that kind of faith can be a good tool, true or not.


    1. I’ve met a friend myself who doesn’t believe in any religion at all (that’s what she said at the time), but spoke almost the exact same words as your friend did, only in the second person. And at that time, I particularly thought highly of her. And your wisdom is priceless, for I do agree that as long as something drives us to be good to ourselves and to others, whether we can prove it or not, it surely is a good thing.

      My reason for believing is, I’m afraid, less altruistic. I find myself believing for if I tried thinking “scientifically”, I would only reach the notion that man is entirely alone. And after death, there would be completely nothing. And the concept of “nothingness” really drives me to the gates of insanity. Brr…


      1. I’m glad you can state that so blatantly. Although I try and arrive at my spiritual ideas through Logos first rather than Ethos, but I certainly have that back-of-the-mind wondering that all my leanings really stem from a fear or mortality and insignificance. And then at the same time too, I’m not sure if I even would want to know if they are hah. We bloody hypocrites, all of us.

        Maybe the atheists just have more courage. Still though, I think….


      2. Yeah…

        Well, I think the atheists still believe in something, like they believe that they believe in nothing. I don’t think anyone still in their logical minds could stand it not believing in anything. That would be just…you’re better off a robot, that way.

        As for all of us being hypocrites, you nailed it mercilessly. After all, we all just try our best to fit in, don’t we?


  2. I have absolutely no statistical support or objective logic to say this (but I’ll say it anyway), I think a pretty large sum of the atheists pool believe (or don’t believe) as they do in a reactionary manner. They well “not believe in anything” as in any objective truth or ethics, I think that’s possible, but I think they often (or at least) “believe against” something. Some brand of some religion, some aspect of faith, whatever. So there is an active belief, even if it is one to the negative, if that makes sense. (I think).

    If you want to add to the hypocrisy of your lower statement though, I think actually what we want more than fitting in is to be special, but in times where we’re are singled out, it’s normally the other way around.

    Silly humans.
