A Rant About Faith..

Tonight as I sat at a Cub Scout meeting, I was annoyed once again at the idiocy of the den leader. This is the gal that one time agreed that reindeer might live at the North Pole, but caribou definitely did not. Tonight she was discussing "Faith". She equated faith to wind... you can't see it, but you know it's there. WTF?!?! I can see the effects of wind, I can feel the wind, even smell the wind. That's all scientific evidence of wind. She was making the point that while you can't see God, you know he's there. But you see, I can't see god, feel god, smell, taste or hear god, hell, I can't even see any evidence of anything that could be called a god. So basically, at best, faith is nothing more than a guess. There is basically no reason at all to put any sort of belief into it, but you do it anyway....Faith. Belief in a god is nothing more than a guess, not even an educated guess, just blind, stabbing in the dark, believe what you're told, guess.

Incidentally, one of the young children in the meeting pointed out that a reason to believe in God is because if you don't he'll kill you. Smart kid, he can pick his battles, he's seen the way of it already. It's flat out tyranny, but what can you do? He's a supreme being and I'd sure like to not be killed or tortured over and over for all eternity. Remember, God loves you.
