You stated in your original post that she converted TO Christianity. Do you not consider Catholics to be Christians, or did you just communicate that poorly?Idgaf: mom was catholic turned to another christian branch.
No "angle". Some people believe god must exist in order for us to have purpose and meaning in our lives. Just trying to see where you stand on that issue.CoR: Why can't your life have reason or purpose without a god?
Idgaf: I'm perfectly fine. Where's ur question coming from? Angle?
If someone "needs" to believe, I don't fault them for it. We all have wants and needs. Many of these wants and needs are common across humanity. It's just the way we deal with them that differs.Too many people need to believe. Read my posts from earlier. Maybe I was asleep writing and confused u.
I agree, we have more in common than certain others on this forum. What I'm still trying to understand it what drives you to believe in a higher power. Unless I misunderstood, you seem to acknowledge that god is unknowable. You also seem to agree that a person can have meaning and purpose in life without god. So what drives you to believe that a higher power exists?CoR: The only thing a god would provide is an externally determined purpose. You can still have an internally determined purpose(s) without a god. And why do we need childish stories of eternal reward or damnation to coerce us into being good. I certainly don't. Do you?
Idgaf: read what I wrote and interpret as you wish ... I am getting "we are in violent agreement" from you on many points in a strange sort of way
