Why do you think so many people are so confident in beliefs that can’t be proven?
I was brought up as a Christian, went to Sunday school, and was taught about God (the good and the evil). I still have a semi-belief, but don’t believe their is a magical place called heaven. Do I believe in angels? Yes, I believe in a Science we don’t know of yet. There have been times when I have known I haven’t been alone, and looked after. It might seem weird, but until someone disproves it.
Look at what we do know is Science now, what is to say that there is something inside of us, and once that spark dies, it goes somewhere else.
People have a belief because they want something to cling on to. A hope that there is something more to the life we lead. That is not to say when something has been disproved, they need to accept it. We all know the earth is round, we’ve seen pictures. Men and women have been beyond our space and seen the earth as we see the moon. Yet flat earthers still believe the world is flat. I learnt in school that whirlpools were seen as monsters back before we knew better. The northern lights were probably seen as some ghostly form.
What is to say that there is a science behind ghosts and angels – I haven’t seen a ghost or an angel, but that isn’t to say they don’t exist. I personally think there is something after we die, but we just don’t know what. We use only a part of our brains, and don’t know enough to disprove everything.
In my mind, when Science disproves the idea, then accept and move on.
