• People believe in ghosts, miracles, heaven, hell, reincarnation, karma, extraterrestrials, time travel, super powers, astrology, phrenology, old wives tales, homeopathic cures, conspiracy theories, luck, et al. In a room full of a thousand people you'd be hard-pressed to find one who didn't believe in something "irrational." To a degree, it's human nature; people like it, it makes them feel comfortable. If you are completely honest with yourself, I'm sure you have some irrational quirks as well. For example, if you see a penny on the ground do you pick it up? Have a lucky article of clothing? Wish on a shooting star, or when you blow out your candles? Now, I will openly admit that I am bewildered when people take religious literature incredibly seriously, but as long as they don't try to shove it down my throat I really don't care. If it makes them happy, something I don't really understand but accept that it happens, then so be it; it's not my place to take that away from them.
  • I still am puzzled over it. All it takes is some common sense and using the grey stuff between your ears.
  • The more we find out, the more we are pointed (by science) to intelligent design. Darwin was 150 years ago, yet people cling to his theory thinking it fact. The complexity of DNA is a perfect example, as well as the smallest organisms that are not just "blobs". (Darwin wouldn't have known about that since the technology wasn't as advanced) As for science, for centuries, they said the earth is flat, while thousands of years earlier, the Bible said it was spherical, who got that one right in the end? Even the fossil records show an explosion of different species at the same time, not a slow emergence of them. But this is an inconvenient truth. To believe it, would be to admit there is a God, so it will not be believed, even though science does point to Him. As a result, TOP scientists are turning to a belief in God because of their findings. Armed with new information, technology and understanding, they quietly struggle against those holding fast to a 150 year old theory.
  • I believe in what is written in the Bible because I truly believe that our Heavenly Father knows best. It was a leader in science, health and relationship advice before any so call 'authorities' came on the scene.
  • Great question. Religions are a huge problem and people just dont care about logic. Religions are very dangerous and might very well be the cause of death for millions or billions of people due to nuclear war in the future. Its time we put a stop to it. I'm really sick of this bullshit.
  • I don't belive much in the Bible. But don't compare supernatural with things like extraterrestrials. I maybe don't belive in travel between distant planets (except unmanned space-probes) but I definatley belive in life on other planets than the Earth.
