I consider myself to be a believer in God in the Prostentant, non-denominational sense. Having said that, I also feel that it is imperative to constantly search for knowledge and truth in the world. Asking questions is the essence of humanity, what allows us to seperate from the animals. Furthermore, I feel very strongly that if someone else has a viewpoint on life, the world, religion, and so forth, that I would dismiss and refuse to believe, then I have absolutely NO right to force my views on them. I feel it's ok to explain to them my views, but I have no reason to try to force them to my 'side'. My question in all of this; if Christians truly feel that God is in their life, and that He leads and guides them with an unending love...what does it matter? Don't listen to the extremists that go to the ends of the earth to tell you how awful of a human being you are for not believing in God...trust me, most Christians don't really like them either. But if we find something that works for us, even if it's COMPLETELY false and even laughable that we believe in something so absurd, what does it hurt to let us believe?
