Let's get serious.
Religion, the paranormal etc. are very convenient explanations for confusing things in our lives.
The ability to create illogical and unsupported explanations is one that we all posses. Any person can dream up their own fantastic solutions to things that may be otherwise explained by more logical means.
The only things that have ever been proven have been through scientific means. And once they're proven they don't seem as special anymore to the people who believed otherwise.
Is it taking the easy way out by believing in religion or otherwise?
Does it make life easier neglecting evidence and blindly following unsubstantiated beliefs?
Are people just not willing to accept that the truths in science etc. are hard to understand and that we will never understand everything?
I'm willing to accept that there may be more to life, and if so I'll shake God (that's any God, belief system, or otherwise) by the hand at heavens gate, congratulate him on his ongoing grand deception, and he'll accept me for who I am because he will appreciate I've lived logically and had no evidence to support his existence.
It's actually pretty amazing to consider how insignificant we are in relation to everything that we know exists. And everything that we know, our knowledge of the extent of the universe, could be worth but a grain of sand in relation to what's really out there.
There are answers for everything. But we will never find them all.
Can you appreciate that everything could be possibly explained logically?
