I scroll right passed those big blocks of copypasta...
I don't think so.
I found God. I don't really know that it is God, but I believe that it is without evidence.
That doesn't mean, to me, that I can believe that I can fly off a cliff even though I really want that to be true.
Thanks, I don't feel insulted.
Okay, for some things yes. Some things, no.
I don't believe in God because I want to. I believe in God because He responded and I know something is there.
I don't really know what it was, exactly, so as I try to deduce finer details I do start getting into preference and choice.
But at the root it isn't a choice, it's more of a conclusion.
I can't agree to that.
I dunno - if the believer didn't think they had a good reason to believe it then I don't see why they would.
There has to be some reason for believing particular things - otherwise peoples' beliefs would be unrecognizable chaos - and whether or not that reason is good enough is their call and not your's.
What isn't good enough for you may be good enough for another.
I see what you're saying - maybe it's just a little too nuanced for me.
There's a lot of believing what you want in religion, but it's not just simply that.
The data is a noisy mess and it's hard to make sense out of it
