Quote from: Shiranu on October 12, 2022, 02:08:41 AMSo what we do understand does not contradict multiple faiths; making me ask again, why is there no room in the world for both when both are in agreement?
QuoteThe 'Faiths' all suggest that to be true to their faith, that reason has to be rejected and one needs to strengthen their faith to find god or whatever super power they follow.
Quote from: Mike Cl on October 12, 2022, 02:00:37 PMWell, Shiranu, I guess I focus too much on the christian religion. There is no room in that religion for rational thinking. I have never had a problem with philosophy, though, and have found it interesting. Personally, I do have room in my head for both rational thought and what I loosely term 'spirituality' and I try to balance them; much like trying to reach a constructive balance in my life for reasoned thought and emotional thought. Not easy, but worth the effort. Your above paragraphs are good. I do have a hard time with the word 'faith' and brand it as being empty headed and destructive to rational or critical thinking. And faith and thinking just don't go together for me.
