when I first came to this site. Whenever I would try to talk about somethign from the bible that the JW's got wrong or reason on a scripture that had so much feeling you would stomp all over it. Talking about "flying spaghetti gods" and laugh at what seemed to be my expense and then leave the thread never to return and add any substance. I would get worked up inside and really get angry about it.
However after a few months of really thinking about things I am starting to really ask myself alot of things that make me not doubt whether God exists - but whether it is really important if I know... or if why am iI really concerned about the bible. After all as once stated if God really wanted us to know his name why didn't he preserve it? If he really wants us to serve him exactly the way he wants why is it not really spelled out in the bible?
Why is it necessary to apply calculus to the bible in order to understand prophecies? Why does he show favortism in the bible? The list could go on and on. My wife on the other hand who has pretty much just given up caring one way or the other in a short period of time said, "I believe there is a god I guess... I just think he made us, wanted us to be nice to people and enjoy your 80 years and die. Maybe we are here just to live those years and enjoy it - it is better than nothing."
That idea annoyed me as well, but the longer I think deeply the more it feels like it just doesn't matter that much
