I think that as we continue on in this life we will always have questions in regards to how we possibly got here as any other question that might pertain to any other subject I do feel as though as we continue to look for answers to our questions we should enjoy this one life that we have here on earth. I don't wish to offend anyone but I do feel that if people are truly curious about their faith or anything for that matter should "think scientificly" so to speak. I would recommend asking yourself these basic questions. Who? When? Why? What? Where? And How? When we ask these certain questions we begin to start on our journey to actually make hypothecies. I think if we actually dig deep and consider that there is more than one answer to every question that we have, we open ourselves up to a world where anything could be possible. Which I believe how it is so easy for anyone to believe in a god because to them at the time is something that is possible but also out of the box too. When I say god I talk about all gods. I think that just because people see little evidence of a creator they shouldn't be so willing to accept it. Throughout history many people have asked themselves the basic questions and have had a hard time finding g answers but I believe logically that maybe its not that they're not trying to see for answers but just asking the wrong questions as to seeking for the answer. All I think people should do is to not only believe in what u decide to believe but try to seek out both sides that not only prove that it exists but also why it doesn't and as you find a conclusion u will actually have facts to why you believe in what you believe.

I think your point is well taken. The problem with so many people in this country specifically is that they are too quick not to think and just to accept and to follow the herd.  Critical thinking is what sets atheists and free thinkers apart from the majority of people of faith.

 

As Christopher Hitchens said, we are in the infinacy of our species and will out-grow the childish tendancies of religion.

I guess we can only hope that more critical thinkers such as people like me and u expand to find the greater truth that others seem to be so blind too
