      I had forgotten it from the first time through. It’s a good thought.

    Sorta like the religion of atheism we were just discussing in Sunday school. A set of beliefs that rally around not believing in God.

      I hadn’t considered it from that angle, but you are right.

          I’m suggesting it’s more stable to stop and create base camps of beliefs even without all the knowledge. You’ll never have all of it.

            True enough. I can’t deny faith gives a solid base and template for a lot of lives. For others, not an essential part of the life foundation. Hey, I’m not against faith, far from it.Faith, almost any faith’s guidelines can do a lot more good than bad, overall,
            Faith can move mountains, but so far, not on my watch. And, as I said before, whatever works for us. We’re all on Gods Eart- let’s just leave it at some planet?

              It needs to be a personal standpoint, even in accepting ‘proof;’ for, if you’re a true skeptic, any account or evidence is suspect. This does not mean your stand will fit someone else’s life or understanding.

    I stopped doing all the things I wanted to do in life when I was young over doubt only to get old and obtain retroactive surefire confidence that in hindsight, I totally could have done all those things. I just wish the doubt had continued, like now that I’m old, I could say I’m glad I didn’t do all those things because of all that doubt was totes real.

      To be fair to your current, curmudgeonly self, we often think we could do more when we were young but there are still limitations. No one’s Superman.

        I just wish the doubt continued and I could be like, “Yup, sure was good I stopped chasing those things I wanted. That would have got me nowhere” rather than now believing I totally could have been awesome but I think the problem is I’m trying to blame a 20 year old for not having a 40 year old brain.

          Exactly. Maybe you need to think about what your 60-year-old self would be blaming you for.
