Question by Life Rocks: Is the search for REAL answers to life’s mysteries more gratifying than simply blindly accepting ancient dogma
Is there anybody else who feels an absolute joy and sense wonder and fulfillment when learning about the true scientific reasons for the how the universe and everything that is in it came to be ?
Do you feel an immense sense of wonder and amazement when you contemplate the sky at night and marvel at all we have learnt about our orgins and existance and all that there is still to know ?
Finally do you think that this joy and wonder is far superior to simply accepting ancient dogmatic myths as a way of explaining the world around us
You typed “Search no more!!!!”
That is the kind of thinking that disturbs me.
I say Never stop searching !

by leaps and bounds, yes.
its not the destination that matters, its the journey.
i dont think many christians realize that. all theyre concerned about is with kissing enough a$s to get into heaven. once theyre there they have no plans. i myself realise that my time is limited here so i better make the best of it.
on sundays i try to go on hikes or walks. usually me and a few friends will make our own trails in the mountains by where we live. its better than dressing up to go to church. while theyre all in that church reinforcing their brainwashing im at the top of a high peak watching the sun rise.
i agree with all your points. blindly accenting dogma simply because it gives you a warm fuzzy felling inside or offers you the best prizes in exchange foryour faith is idiotic in my opinion.
its the journey people….not the destination.
