I'm jay, just joined the group, I've always doubted a 'God', especially learning about evolution and science. As I studied philosophy I realized some didn't believe in God because they can't see him, some say why believe in something that can't be proven? Well, I stumbled upon Thomas Aquinas' 5 proofs of existence of God using scientific principles of physics which he uses to demonstrate-law of motion, a first cause that set all in motion, cause and effect, he says basically a 0 can't yield a 1, so a creator had to of always existed, etc. I never thought of that before. I just look at some people are sheep and NEED to believe in something to motivate themselves.
Then, I look back in history, ironically, religion gave rise to a lot of science, catholics started the university system, priests came up with heliocentric theory and big bang theory, I don't know, the bible is just fables but Aquinas seems to have a valid point. Just because some people need to believe in something to motivate themselves doesn't make them stupid or ignorant as an article on this very site points out, we don't need that, science works fine, but what do you guys think? What say you?
