Stop saying "maybe", and perhaps give me a response to my reply to you from here: http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/forums/index.php/topic,17574.msg389084.html#msg389084
Why should i stop saying maybe..?
BECAUSE dude. You can "maybe" away literally ANYTHING if you want to. Humans are very imaginitive and are MASTERS at rationalizing stuff.
If you play the MAYBE game with yourself, no matter *what* belief you're trying to test, you'll *always* end up correct about it, because there's almost literally no limit to what sort of justifications and rationalizations you can come up with.
If your criteria for belief is simply "maybe-ing" things out of your hat and then cramming them into the puzzle spaces until they make some kind of sense, you essentially have no reason to even take reality into account at all.
What you'll inevitably find though, is that you can only stack the "maybe" pile so high before you have to take a step back and look at it and go, "Wow. That's a whole lot of maybes and wishful thinking."
You need to ask yourself, and be honest, what is more likely? That allllllll those far-out and far-reaching "maybes" inside of "maybes" that are built on "maybes" with "maybes" dangling off the side of still more "maybes", and "what ifs" and "it could bes..." Is it more likely that all of these, which have not a shred of concrete evidence to support them, and half of which you've just invented as you went along... Is it likely that these are actually correct, and you just happened to FEEL your way to the ultimate Truths? Really?
Or is it more likely that the foundation on which you've built this tower of maybes is simply not real? It would immediately remove all the uncomfortable answers, all the illogical inconsistencies, all the mind-bogglingly complex and unlikely best-fit explanations... And guess what? It TOTALLY jives with what we actually can *prove* about the nature of the life and the universe.... It instantly makes life and the universe make a LOT more sense, and makes all those uncomfortable questions really, really easy to answer - "It's not true."
That's it. Poof! There you go. If you assume it's not true, you don't *have* to go forcing imagined puzzle pieces into the proper spaces. And amazingly enough? Everything we as humans have learned about the nature of the universe seems to indicate *exactly* the kind of universe we'd expect to see if there were no gods, starving babies and all.
Of course, most religious people would never be inclined to do such a thing. It's a real pain in the ass to go out and actively look for real, substantial answers to the hard questions, when you can simply "maybe" away any answers you might not like to suit your fancy and help you reach your pre-drawn conclusion.
Who wants to do all that research just to get answers you might not like? So what if they're the truth, right? They'll never give you the warm fuzzies like "maybes" do. Probably best to just stick your head in the sand at the end of the day.
