    The reasoning for this thread.

    1. I'm an intuitive "rational."
    2. I'm an atheist.
    3. Therefore, non-atheists are irrational and sensors.


    Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?
    You lose.

    I don't have a clear type, but I have a probability distribution about my best types. ENTJ comes the top in probability, with about 21% chance, and ENTP second, with about 18% chance. Ok, lately, perhaps down to 15%, whereas ENTJ is up to about 30%.

    I think it would be almost valid for me to answer this thing.

    The definition of faith is hoping or believing in that which is unseen or not yet manifest. Faith doesn't need hard proof, it isn't a science, and it's not "irrational" in the sense of hysterics. A more apt word would be "illogical".

    Believing in a better tomorrow, believing in the goodness of humanity, believing in the spiritual aspect of life and the miracle of our world and our bodies is in itself faith. I believe very strongly in God, in the existence of souls and their marks on the world even when their bodies are long gone in the dust, in good and evil. This does not make me hysterical, unthinking, strict or confining. Faith is like seeing the "not" or "and" in the problem, the gap, the void or blank space where something should be, like dark matter. You know it's there, and yet it has no name, no shape, no direct method of detection, and its influence is felt on everything. Even gravity is considered an "imaginary" or vaguely unanswerable force.

    People who use religion - ANY belief system whatsoever - to corral, cage, cow, hamper, terrify or neglect is NOT, to me, something spiritual, but more what is called "the letter of the law" and not the spirit at all.

    I don't know anything for certain, I don't know ultimate outcomes, I refuse to live my life in fear, and yes, I believe in a personal God that I can't always explain or even fully understand. I weigh my faith against the things I see and hear as proofs, I also take into account that some things cannot and will not ever be explained, I feel the numinous presence of the departed.

    There is the "god spot" in the brain. There is a real faith. The balance must be struck by those who care to approach both. A critical understanding is needed regardless of what I think about God or Allah or anyone else for that matter.

    I have a religious ENTP friend very close to me that makes me look like a woad-smeared heathen. It's not about type. (AGAIN)
    There's a reason to believe in a better tommorow; the fact that human progress has been increasing exponentially over the last few hundred years. There's no reason whatsoever to believe in god.

    There is no "god spot" in the brain. Religion was an early attempt by humans to make sense of the world around them. Almost all ancient cultures had some sort of religious belief, but this isn't because humans are predisposed to religion; it's because humans are predisposed to ask "why?". With science and reason at our disposal, we don't have to make things up to explain the world around us. We don't need religion any more.

    So? That's the truth. Would you believe a lie over a truth if the lie makes you feel better?

    How the fuck is that less rational than thinking a deity sent himself in human form to be killed by himself in order to forgive his creations for committing sins he himself made up?

    This is laughable.

    Yet what do you do with humans who are pro-god ? In that moment this becomes a part of human nature aswell
