Re: Do you believe to the other life?? (After Death)
And the perfect way to avoid letting your imagination take you somewhere else, to avoid dreaming and being creative, I would say!
You know, I'm writing novels and so in my free time (nothing that I want to become famous, more like something for my own soul
), and I'd never write anything if I don't let my imagination go somewhere beyond some borders of the world we definitely KNOW. Allright, there's another thing, I'm writing about fantasy and such things, but still I have a firm border between that and real life... But I think that anyone should let himself "be free" at least a little, even in real life.
Ooh, you have to argue immediatelly.
No one WANTED YOU to believe in something. That actuarlly is my point: to believe in anything you like. But don't go into another end: you also don't have to throw away anything we say without taking a closer look at it!
Did I say that you have to believe in other life? I think not. I said that I wander what will you say, although I kinda knew you won't say anything...
Exactly. I repeat, no one wanted you to believe in something.
But you have to live that "your life" in some kind of way!!! And also you should let US live OUR lives the way we want and not always telling us how your opinnions are the best and everyone should think on that way (no offence).
People believed in something since there is mankind. Those were different kinds of Gods and such things, but there was SOMETHING always. I think that our existence depends on our beliefs, yeah, that's right, in things we wish to be true.
If we don't believe in anything, just try to imagine what would happen: we would come to the simple question: why do we live when everyone shall die once? and with that kind of thinking, we wouldn't want our lives at all, we'd all die once because we wouldn't waste our time on raising the children, and mankind would be gone. Any clearer now why there are any beliefs?
That poet is absolutely right. Because WE DON'T KNOW, it doesn't mean WE SHOULDN'T BELIEVE. Believe because beliefs give us strenght to go on, either they're true or they're not. We can hope there's something and we'll reach for it. If we don't we won't have the desire to go on... And maybe we were wrong all the time?
Now you see MY point.
But if we want to discuss this we should either get back to the religions topic or make another one on... this... I'd make it, but I'm not quite sure what we were talking about right now and how should I name that topic. Beliefs, I guess... but that's religion again.
