Philosophical Thoughts – 9/27/06 – Religion

Many people have said over the years, it is better to believe in a God than to not, because if you do not believe in a God, then you might be in trouble if you are wrong?  And if there is no God, then you lost nothing.  Is this really a good way of thinking?  I say no. 

Is it possible to just say, I believe such and such?  Or, must you have some experience to bring you to that knowledge?  If you prescribe to the idea above, I must question your sincerity to that religion.  Is your faith truly strong enough to say that you really believe?  Or, is it merely a hypocritical act where you only go through the steps in saying that you believe?  Also, is one who behaves in this manner going to stay with that religion in the hard times?

Give me some feedback!
