Why Are You Religious?

Science may one day explain why we have intensely feelings of the religious type. Some of the heighten feeling of religious arousal have been replicated in the lab with the subjects reporting exactly the same type of feelings and sensations that religious believers experience.

I will settle for undetectable at this time cos I believe there are things we cannot at this stage in our scientific development sufficiently report on. For instance ur mind where is it? In ur brain or merely linked to it?

Well said. However, what do you mean by "unseen realm"? Do you mean undetectable? What is the evidence for such a claim? And is the "unseen realm" supernatural, that is, cannot be detected by natural means?

I will agree dat there is an unseen realm. I will agree dat there is God. Religion however in whatever form seems over elaborate to me.

An All Powerful God dat requires tiny pitiful humans to prance around dancing n grovelling at His feet does not seem like a concept I want to take seriously. I mean an All powerful God doesnt need me to validate His power.

All forms of religion seem to me to be only a cover for man to ursup authority over his fellow man using the unseen as an excuse.

Beyond this physical terrain

there is an invisible domain

where angels battle over souls in vast array

but down on earth is where we are

no wings to fly

no place to stand

Here on our knees we are strangers in this place

Nothing else to do but Live like Christ

Anybody can be religious

Christainity= Religion+Christ

I'm a christian because I was raised that way and that was all I knew growing up.

Science is an unfortunate human way of independence and selfish indulgence in silly beliefs.

I feel sorry for you anyway that you are caught in the web of this unfortunate scientific rubbish.

Religion is man's way of getting to God while Christianity is God's way of getting to man - make your choice.

For your info. Christianity is not a religion. Take it or leave it.

Your post is in the arena of hope, so we are waiting for the day that will never come!

Cool stuff. The cliche "there go I but for the grace of God" comes to mind - for both the being an evangelist and a member of the flock.

It occurs to methat your claim echoes a thougt I have. To people who don't feel the "magic" or whatever, reading is just a hobby, merely something you do for leisure. To me and others like myself, reading is something so much more: an intimate, indispensible way of life, so to speak.

What's my point? Christianity is still a religion.

here is the problem, christianity is a religion to those who either dont understand it or for those to whom it is merely a label. To the rest christianity is a way of life and an intimate relationship with One who is both God and Father, it does not depend on touchy feelings of religious arousal.
