They always seem like they have something to prove. It must be exhausting. It is amazing how arrogant they are.
They cannot be satisfied with their own belief; everyone must join them. I think it is insecurity. If they are comfortable in their beliefs, why must everyone else agree? I guess the more people that confirm their beliefs, the more valid they feel. Even when something occurs that they cannot compartmentalize, they have clever little techniques to shield themselves with. Don’t get me wrong, I feel it is healthy to be partly a skeptic. I simply feel that as the living we have a very limited grasp and sensation of our reality. For example, we know in mathematics that 3+4 = 7. However, this may only work under the Closure Property for our set of reality. What if we perceive 4, but part of that “4” is masked to our senses? This is like only seeing the tip of the iceberg. It is arrogant to assume that beneath the water in this case does not exist because we cannot perceive it. The skeptic would say “prove
it”. We may not have the tools to peer beneath the waves. In the same sense, there may be worlds or realities that touch or interact with ours that we may not be able to peer into as of yet. 3+4 may equal something else given better sensory tools. Many Christians, have no trouble believing the Holy Trinity exists as One God. The finite perceiving the infinite gives us a limited capability of comprehending this. We take it on
faith. Which is stronger faith or knowledge? I know one thing, if I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior and the skeptic does not, when we die the skeptic will be in worse shape; if I am wrong and there is no God, then it won’t matter we will not know that the skeptic was correct. I know I feel sorry for complete skeptics. I believe that the dead have a voice and we honor them by acknowledging that. To the skeptics, I leave
them the sad, grim reality of a silent universe shallow and lonely.
