Why do you believe what you believe?

I have a question for you.  Consider it un-official, non-scientific research. 

Why do you believe what you believe?  How do you determine that it is “worth” believing what you believe?

The question is subjective…interpret it as you may.

Stop stalking and start talking 🙂

    Why has no one answered?

    I believe because I have seen the test and the truth of what it is. I believe because I have understood its benefits and its positives. I believe because I can see no other reason not to.

    The real question for me is this: “If I believe, why don’t I act?”

    Is that true belief?

    I believe in the Kingdom of God. I believe in it because of the in-built instinct to hate injustice, the quest for beauty, and the desire for truth that seems to be inate in me and in all human beings to lesser or greater degrees. I believe in it because I see it advancing. This world is a mess so there is an obvious battle between good and bad going on, both internally inside of me and externally in the world. I don’t see how this can be a product of chance or cosmic accident. There are other things I do not believe. I do not believe that the Democrats, Republicans, or my church, or my country, or even myself have it all figured out or has a monopoly on the truth. My thinking is post-modern in that sense.
