Question to theists (Are you happy?)
A lot of times theists says that they are happier or more comfortable believing in god, that god gives hope and so on.
But the more i try to understand this point of view, the more it looks dull and depressing.
Ok, lets assume that god created universe, and you KNOW (not only believe but know it 100%) that. Let me ask is it comforting knowing that some all mighty god created universe - suddenly all answers are answered and theres no need to search for truth. You know that you are going to heaven and so on, but your mind is bored, because you know the answer to life, the universe and everything (42 ). So the point is that the main drive to the point where we are now (curriosity) is left behind.
I just say, that i am much happier believing that death is the end, but still having curriosity, and still awaiting for the answers.
The universe is so great that so simple explanation (god did it) for it would be so depressing that i wouldn't want to live any more.
