The Truth

The evidence for Christianity being true is compelling. Jewish people, Moslems, people of most faiths believe the same. I know reincarnation is true because I have experienced myself in previous lives. There is no spiritual world; the universe can be explained by science alone.

Strongly held views defended with passion. Can everyone be right? Who is right?

I asked someone today to explain the Israeli point of view regarding the conflict with the Arab world. I learnt a lot. Only part joking he suggested a way to bring about peace would be intermarriage. That would further tolerance.

Most people in the world carry forward the beliefs from their family or culture. In a similar way, a son supports Arsenal or the Red Sox because that’s what dad did. I am not saying football or baseball are as important as the mysteries of our existence, though they might be for some people.

In my case, I grew up an atheist and in my forties have been looking for the answers. Sometimes I reckon it’s easier to leave it all aside, but the questions are way too profound and the benefits way too great to do that.

Whatever your beliefs are, I respect them and hope to learn more about them.
