    Lightbulb Belief is Moot

    For those of us who subscribe to Christianity (in one way or another), do you realise that if you grew up in an Islamic country, you'd have the same potent sense of belief in Islam as you do now in Christianity?

    That is true. This would be the case until a person is exposed to something, or some event which causes them to question what it is they believe. At that point, some form of self-examination, and evaluation of the belief system takes place, which ultimately leads to a concious decision to accept or reject the belief system and subscribe to another.

    Quite so! Belief cures and belief kills.

    ahhh I believe we had this argument on another forum... I have heard many people saying they could never be Buddhists but if you were born in the east it would me be a possiblity.

    Yea, what if our beliefs are wrong? On the other hand, how can it be wrong?

    Most of the important things in life comes through due diligence and hardwork. Enlightenment is probably not going to drop in our laps.

    Are you saying there is something wrong in questioning your faith, values and everything else you believe in? Isn't truth better than faith?
