Middleagedplague just has a whole lot to say about believing.
I gave good thought to the perspectives that are shared here, and I think you should do too.
Maybe everyone really is a believer, only that we probably believe in different things.
I love to think for myself.
I encourage you to think for yourself.
What do you think?
We disagree with one another a lot these days, but I think I’ve found three sentences we can all say, “Yes, that’s true,” to:
1) We are all born.
2) We all die.
3) In between, we operate each of our lives based upon individual belief systems, which in themselves are loosely or tightly based upon larger, more organized group systems.
Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Agnostic, Atheist — there are a lot of options for believing, and subdivisions within each system. Twenty people in a room, discussing their way of looking at things, leads to a hum of activity; there are nearly 7 billion of us.
We will never agree. That’s not the point.
The point is this: we all believe in something, because no human mind is a vacuum. (I know; I’ve met some pretty apparently empty-cranium types myself; generally I’m driving behind them; but seriously, even these people think.)
