    I just thought there might be a reason for you to choose China, and was curious that's all. But I assumed you meant just a random country while voting. 4 years ago  
    I never once thought that logic and faith are mutually exclusive, so I wouldn't have implied so, you might be holding a presumed idea on what I was trying to say while reading. Logic is universal, it does not change for who you are. If something is not logically an evidence, it won't be in any case, that's why logic is so powerful. However, you can still hold onto your faith, and thus keep on testing the hypothesis, and this is why, again, I DON'T think that faith and logic contradicts each other. Let me stress that I don't think it is incorrect to have faith only, everyone has the right to seek for a higher power in their own way, however, that is the same for finding God through logic. I don't think it's right to expect everyone to JUST have faith, or decide for others that a proof is not necessary. The new example that you put forward still doesn't demonstrate how the child should not be questioning. In fact, it is even more legit for the child to question in this case I reckon. The child can choose to believe or disbelieve. But it isn't wrong for the child to ask for proof such as birth certificate of that sort. In fact, if that child has the slightest hope or faith, it is just natural for the child to want to ask and find out more about her. 4 years ago  
    I didn't say that faithful people abandon logic, all I am saying is, "there is nothing wrong with wanting a proof". Although I'd like to think and believe that God created the Universe, but the mere fact that it exists is not enough to serve as a proof, and so we will need to hold onto this hypothesis of "God exists" (or you can call it faith) and search further for the proof which is not found yet. Your example of mother and child is not convincing enough to demonstrate that we should not question. You and I are lucky enough to be loved so much that we don't need to question. But there are children who are insecure by nature, or mothers that are just not good at showing affection, and if the children really need to know, why not ask? If the mother love them enough, she would have done something to show her love. Don't forget that there are actually mothers who do not love their children too. And really, the question here is not "does mommy love me?" but more like "does mommy even exist?", which is a totally legit question if you have not even once seen your mother. 4 years ago  
    I see your point. And I agree that it is moral for humans or animals to help each other from suffering. But just for discussion's sake, without disagreeing on your point, will "moral" be different for an omnipotent deity (consider that he created pain for a reason)? Or, is moral absolute? Also, isn't it odd for the omnipotent deity to create something (pain and suffering) that he, if moral, has to end? I like your question a lot, it stimulates a lot of thinking and discussion. 4 years ago  
    Actually, what I wanted to say is, it isn't wrong to want a proof of his existence before believing, because if God created logic, he would want us to be logical. 4 years ago  
    Yeah, your question is a point that I have struggled on (and hoped that nobody points out XD) too. But if I were to be stubborn and think that pain and suffering are neutral, then the deity isn't being immoral to create them or not stopping them, which is still relevant to the original question. I think the reason we need to eat is, trivially, to prevent ourselves from dying too early (before reproduction). Dying itself is very important in evolution, and again, although it's sad, death itself is neutral (and from time to time, i think it's very beautiful in evolution's sense). But as to why the deity created this mechanism, evolution, for life, then I think it will go into the discussion of the purpose of life, and I don't know the answer to that. If the point of life is just so something is there living, existing, then true, there won't be a reason for evolution and thus the killing. You said my view was opposite to yours, I am quite interested to know yours too. As you said different is good, mind sharing? 4 years ago

    To me, pain and suffering in their pure form has nothing to do with morality. Pain is just a signal to tell you you are in danger. However, the REASON that a pain is caused is related to morality. Causing some animal pain because you need to feed yourself is not immoral, but doing so just for the fun is. So not ending pain and suffering itself isn't immoral, but not ending immorality would be. 4 years ago  
    As a girl, I find being a girl so much more convenient. Guys have a lot of expectation to meet from society. They have to be strong, can't show emotions too easily, cannot have "girly" interests, have a limited choice of styles... Or else they get bullied or made fun of, being called names like faggot or gay. They are heavily oppressed in this way, and not a lot of them dare to admit because they don't want to be laughed at (or are conditioned to find it normal). People talked about girls being raped easily, but in fact guys can get raped too, and I don't think it's mentioned enough on media. Also, once a guy gets falsely accused of raping someone, it's almost impossible for him to clear his name. On the other hand, girls are free to choose whatever interests they take on, how to dress, how to act, they can cry with their friends when they want to and nobody would be so cruel to mock them. Most girl will find a tomboy cool or attractive, instead of saying "eww". Yeah, PMS and pregnancies are scary, but really we have the choice to take medicine to avoid either of them. 4 years ago  
    I guess I was too sensitive (am not part of any religion though), it's just that little stuff like this influences sometimes. 4 years ago  
    The fact that you chose photos from different religion to represent options for "immoral" or "not immoral" made me reluctant to vote. 4 years ago  
    No family and friends in B too...... At least can talk to someone in A. (btw, why specifically China, but not just a made up place where you don't know the language of?) 4 years ago

    You can prove something to be wrong, but you cannot prove something "does not exist". 4 years ago  
    Yeah, me too! I find a proof usually more exciting than the conclusion itself. 4 years ago  
    I tend to think that, BECAUSE God created science and logic, that's how he wants us to think, and we should make good use of the gift of logic. And to be logical, you can't just believe in something without a proof. As such I don't see how it is inappropriate to need a proof for belief. Also, unless he doesn't want us to find him, the only way we can actually get to know him with certainty would be through logic and science (well, if he doesn't want us to find/know him, then why bother at all to have faith?). 4 years ago  
    Want A to happen too, but proving the existence of God doesn't necessarily be beneficial in anyway, as we might not know what sort of god he is, what kind of ideology he has, or how he sees life. All that does is letting us say, "yeah, there's a God", and a mystery solved. But curing cancer eliminates one of the sufferings. Without considering whether it's a way natural control a population, B benefits more to humanity. 4 years ago +1

    I didn't think too seriously about it. I guess it's the choice of word. A romantic ideal fits better with "elders" and "cultures", and the pictures too. If it was phrased "leader of some country", then I will instantly become more skeptical. 4 years ago
