I figured out why people are Theists!
I had a talk with two theologians, and I gained some new insight into Theism. Obviously they wanted to defend their belief in existence of God, but they weren't fundementalists. So here's what I figured out:
Theists believe in God, because they don't have faith in the power of rational thought, and some Theist's nature simply does not allow rational thinking. Rational thought is what creates science. We can now save people's lives, heal the sick and even bring back the dead, because rational thought has given a rise to science, wich allows these god-like powers. With technology one can fix everything. That's what I believe.
The problem is that most Theists are more emotional than rational. They don't believe the powers of science, because their nature doesn't allow them to understand it. Emotional people believe in God because their belief appeals to emotions. You all know that already. If an emotional Theist's beliefs are challenged, they simply ignore it, because their highly emotional minds can't stand the truth that Atheists have to handle all the time: They are very alone, very insignificant in a very, very huge universe.
So what do they do, or more like what their minds do? Their brains create them the God delusion. The subconcious mind of a Theist is well aware of the fact that it created God, and that God doesn't really exist, but that would just be too much for the concious mind to handle, so they cover it up! Their minds keep it in secret, so the delusion gives them hope to get through their lives.
Ofcourse, not all Theists are totally irrational and emotional, but maybe something just went wrong in the "God department" in their brains.
Any comments on my little theory?
And uhh. I'm new here and I can't find a way to search the forums.
Trust and believe in no god, but trust and believe in yourself.
