It's a logical choice
It's not a logial choice.
If we break the difference between "Logic" and "Belief", Logic starts off as a belief. What I mean by this is how something became logical? By a belief about what could be plausible, and proven to show it meaning logic. If you do or don't believe in God, that is your choice; but following this system, belief in God is some form of logic.
I'm not arguing for any specific God (as i am a deist) But when you look at the metaphysics of the universe it becomes self evident.
For reasons I am too lazy to state.
It is highly logical, It gives u a sense of fear that whatever you do in this world,you have to pay back! Religion teaches us the true way to live our lives which is also beneficial for our next generation,environment and society.
Guess that would depend on your logic. I use the assumption that ideas exist. God is just another idea.
Atheists have to believe that the universe has no origin, that life can come out of nowhere, and reproduction happens by magic. Theists, however, know for sure that the universe had a single supernatural cause that requires no cause, which is the only logical theory of the beginning of the universe; they know that life did not come from something non-living, and they know why reproduction can not be understood. Which is more logical: belief in the nearly impossible, or knowledge of the flawlessly logical? Obviously the latter, which is theism.
Has anyone on here not heard this thing called the teleological argument? Aristotle one of the greatest philosophers of time took belief out of it and just went based on pure logic . Basically it states that everything made must have a creator. If you see a painting, you think "a person or animal must have painted that". Arguing against it is, "see that painting, I think it always was, see this watched I have on, I think it wasn't created I think that it just popped into existence for the person I bought it from .
I think that both belief and not believing are a logical choice its all a matter of perception
Theism has a very high form of inflect, the logical belief in God is both respectable and ideological
People have not proven the Bible wrong, or Christianity wouldn't exist. Therefore, since the Bible is still a valid source of information, it cannot be completely ignored as a fictional work. Because the Bible still holds validity, it is not illogical to believe in it. As simple as that.
I have to ask, "which god"? There a number of Gods. How is it logical to believe in any god or ideology when there are thousands of them out there? It's more logical to not subscribe to any deity, admit it is due to a lack of evidence, and change your mind should evidence pop up. To choose one god over the others means to side with something that has no evidence which would seem you think one is more possible than the other, when it is not. It's illogical, stupid, and primitive. We as humans should know better then that. Some will say the way the universe works, like gravity and beauty, that is all happenstance and we have no idea otherwise. I ask anyone who thinks otherwise to look at Earth, the size of it compared to the sun and other planets, their distance, then the galaxy, followed by every other galaxy till you see the entire universe. Taking in the entire size and distance and how absolutely deadly it is and how much it "wants to kill us". There is no logic in choosing something with no evidence when you can simply formulate what is reality based on what we know. It's never logical to formulate what is reality without evidence. This isn't the bronze or iron age. This is the technological age of reason and with all the information we have, compared to the creation times of religion, we should know better.
There are three different forms of logic. retroduction is the only one that can be considered logical in this realm. Retroduction is the least critical btw. Deduction and induction are far more superior.
Oh course it's illogical..... I can't prove that he doesn't exist. However, since we've never seen God or discovered any evidence that he exists, it's safe to say God is improbable. If God is improbable, he most likely do not exist. Therefore, believing in God is illogical because he most likely do not exist. I think the same can be said regarding unicorns or any other mythological God like Zeus or Poseidon. However, the great goat God does exist. I know, I've seen him.
The most logical reason for theism I can think of is that every creation has a creator, but then who created God? God himself? Then maybe the universe created itself? Maybe the universe is some sort of god.
Ask me why if you really want to know.
In the Scientific Revolution, people were trading their beliefs for logic and reason. Clearly, most bibles throw these logical thoughts out of the window.
