Religion and My Sister
God is all that we don’t know!?
I had a conversation with my sister, recently, and she said: “Ron, you should blog about religion.” At first I thought, why should I, since I have no real strong feelings for religion like she does. I know she believes in the teachings of religion (I think this is called faith for many) and the gospel is a form of truth.
Well, if anything, I am most likely agnostic. Then again, I’m not sure if I should be placed in that category anymore than to say I am a atheist or a “believer.” I don’t believe I’m a atheist. I’m not sure I’m agnostic. Am I a believer??? What does it mean to be a believer?
I have often used the statement that; “God is all that we don’t know.” I’m not sure who to attribute that quote to. I don’t believe it’s an original, but I’m not sure. I guess it’s the same with religion — I don’t believe but I’m not sure. What does that mean???
What is God? Salman Rushdie once said that if we are to believe in God then God must “show up.” I suppose he has a point. With all of the technology we now have, surely someone would have at least a picture of God by now.
There has been a lot of stuff “generated” about religion. One that comes to mind is George Carlin’s routine of Religion is Bullshit. And, routines have been done on YouTube about atheists. Religion is an important “something” in human life. What is it?
Spiritualness and/or religion seem to me to be at the center of most wars, political beliefs, families, etc.. Is what’s at the center important?
So many questions. For every answer there seems to be two new questions. There is sort of a “thought” mitosis going on in my mind. Yikes!
What do you think?
