I believe in God because I want to. There is no proof either way. If evidence presents itself thet I am wrong so be it, I will change my mind. To qoute Einstein "Science without religion is lame; Religion without science is blind" I want both in my life. Kate xx
Bloody Hades, Kate..... Did you not learn from the very thread YOU STARTED that Einstein's use of words like "religion" and "God" wasn't the same as yours? Did you ever learn what the term "Spinoza's God" meant to Einstein, a deist?
But even more importantly: if you don't understand the meaning of words written in German by a human who died within the last century, then what makes you think you're going to understand the meaning of words written TWENTY-FIVE centuries ago, in a ancient Hebrew language (which changed, BTW, as all languages do) and within a cultural context that is completely foreign and far-removed from a modern person's world-view?
