DARK SIDE OF FAITH

Faith is good except in the face of facts! However to keep the faith, it's best to ignore the facts! Faith in the tenets of any religion can be life changing, and certainly better than a despairing view of life. However, a persons faith when the facts or truth is available makes little sense. ‘Faith’ is in a certain teaching, generally from ancient times. Miracles, purported facts at the time, some wise words, your interpretation, etc., are aspects that make many followers of a system, and culture, to have a guideline of rules for most within that society. Knowing is stronger than any belief or faith. Why hope or have faith in what is known. Does it make sense to say ‘you have faith’ in what or whom you love, if it’s beyond doubt? If a couple is fully merged in love with transparent communication, doubt is not there. No doubt means belief or faith is not necessary.


All myths have a element of truth, then becoming embellished in time, and spun by those who elect to pass on the beliefs. Followers of religions over time invent things that are pure fabrications. Nearly all religion characters in holy books have no credible historical evidence of having existed. Faith today in myths when there are so many real mysteries to be discovered, are limiting to the joys of exploring and creating higher states of consciousness on your own. In the Christian religion people believe in the miracles, take then away, and the belief in Jesus declines into wanting to know the facts. For centuries, religions have been making promises, none of them happen, or are going to. The ‘religion salesmen’ have been and continue to be lying, promising, and peddling medicine to your minds. You are simply wasting your life to not pursue the facts, and at the same time making sure you have love of yourself, compassion for others, and an openness to question as well as being open to be questioned. Faith which does not doubt is dead faith.

  1. Faith should be flexible. Mine comes and goes in waves. I keep this, reject that. But - the most important thing? I keep tabs on it. I keep re-examining it, in the same way that I go through the clothes in my closet. Some things one simply out grows. Some things simply wear out. I'm not a follower of fashion - I like the classics, so discarding something because it's no longer fashionable doesn't fit in my way of doing things. But for some? It might well be time for an update. - Uptonking from Wonderland Burlesque

  2. Personally speaking, as I told you several times, I don't believe in any positive and prescriptive religion! God exists, we're piece of HIM, and we're on this earth, in this dimension to learn more and more, to not need further incarnations! all the rest is myths! that's my belief! and I strongly believe God is not interested if we, for example, love a man, or a woman, are bisex, omo etero, trans and so on. It doesn matter to some human beings, and I hope will matter to less and less people! My belief is deep and strong, but this king of belief, and I don't believe and I don't care of myths!

    Kisses to you and all your readers!

  3. Thee readers here are an 'enlightened', thoughtful and self-actualizing bunch. We are evolved; we can separate fact from fiction and are not easily manipulated by anyone or anything. Right?

    That said, I will be the first to admit that in the very darkest times of my life, when logic could not dull my pain, Faith was my rescue. Faith in what? Faith in my own strength? Faith in a Superior Being? What difference does it make as long as I am still here to tell the tale.

    The expression "There are no atheists in foxholes" pretty much sums it all up.
