This is something I've been pondering over the last few weeks. Please don't take this as an attack on any belief whatsoever. I'm genuinely curious about what people think.
Whether you're religious or not, how would you know if you were wrong? How would you know the difference between a world with a god of some description governing everything, and a world that just is as it is?
A lot of people have answered that they wouldn't know, but they have faith. In that case, how would you know to put your faith into YOUR god and not one of the many other gods and belief systems?
If the answer is still just faith, what makes that faith any more than a random guess done to avoid an existential/moral crisis?
Is it good enough to have faith that if there is a god of some kind, I will not be punished because I have done the best I could with the information available to me, even if I did not worship or devote my life to them?
If yes, what's the point of being religious at all?
