I'm not trying to be a jerk here i really do wanna know i wonder why people who believe in the christian or catholic or jewish god can even believe with hardly any evidence and hardly any history adding up or making sense. It's faith you say? How though how can you have faith without anything supporting you? again just wondering.

Belief systems ba<x>sed on gods are not built on observable fact because they are not intended to feed a thirst for scientific knowledge. For those who have these beliefs, god is a comfort and shelter from the struggles of day to day life. It can help people find balance, remain centered and focused on things of real value such as family and personal fulfillment. It can clear people's minds of worldly distractions like work and finances so that they can rise above the banalities in life.

Hm i understand needing balance i understand needing to feel safe and happy. But i guess it still even though i get it makes me wonder why.

The best discussion I've had about it was summed up when my friend said "it doesn't really matter if god exists or not. It's not something I worry about because I don't feel controlled or deluded. God just helps me feel free"

And i allow that though i gotta admit to not feeling bad about loving debates and long talks about it. It's very interesting and im open to all views.

It's good the have a belief system that works for oneself. Without allowing for beliefs that are injurious, it is important to know where one stands as a human being. The stability that comes with knowing what believe gives us the strength to accomplish everything we need to.
