    Default What would life be without your faith?

    You don't have to be strongly religious or go to church or anything to describe it briefly.


    Thank you.

    I'm an atheist, but I consider myself a spiritual person. I think we all are.

    My "faith" is love, and awe, and splendor, and beauty. Mercy, grace, compassion.

    I cannot separate my life from my "faith". My "faith" is how I make sense of reality.

    Asking about life without "faith" is like asking what the world would look like if we did not have eyes (or, to be more accurate, the ability to make sense of the visual information that is transmitted through our eyes.)

    Faith isn't something we put on like a hat every weekend- it's embedded in every moment, in every breath, in every decision.

    much more pleasurable:
    i enjoyed being a spritiual agnostic a lot more then i'm enjoying being a metaphorically-spiritual tea pot agnostic.

    it was a nicer when all the paradigms where equally possible rather then ordered by probability, and socially speaking it was a lot easier to play around in other people's adopted paradigms. now i don't feel as flexible as i used too.

    all of this happened because i lost an argument btw...

    Without faith, life would have much more uncertainty, and there would be no hope for me to accomplish anything.

    I've been having some tough times, as far as knowing the future goes... but I think that my faith in God's plan (or the plan of the universe or whatever you think personally) has really helped me to keep going and find hope in little developments

    My faith empowers me to care enough to bother breathing from second to second.

    I'm an atheist and polytheist at the same time. I don't know what I would say I have faith in. If I wasn't theistic at all, my life wouldn't be that different. If I didn't have faith in anything good, my life would be terrible.

    Oh dear. You've gotta watch that -- the last time I lost an argument, I ended up moving from Evangelicalism -> existential depression -> agnosticism before I stabilized.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I would ascend beyond this realm, untethered by gravity and things of the like.


    Unfortunately, knowledge makes it so. Sigh.
