Putting Faith in its Place

Putting Faith in its Place

A good logical examination of faith, and why you shouldn’t go overboard with it and try to control others by its dictates. Those should be personal for you, but not for everyone else – their beliefs might be different and nobody can prove who is correct.

This comes from one of my favorite youtube rational thinkers, Qualia Soup.

  1. It’s quite Interesting how the film started with trying to percieve what is “In the Box” and what is not “In the box” at the beginning of this video , however while the gentleman gives a strong argument that god may not exist , he failed to actually prove that God doesn’t exist , and at the end even copped to the fact that in our Universe supreme intellegence may exist as well as the possibilityof a single entity who initiated the universe .

    Is it just me ? or ddid others notice it too , that the makers of this fine video possibly forgot to think “outside of the box” when it comes to defining the “universal supreme intelegence” ?

  2. I think it’s just you. He does debunk some of the classical defenses of God, however he’s not trying to prove existence or non existence. He’s pointing out the limits of our ability to do either, and why it’s not fruitful to strongly proselytize or politicize or project your personal beliefs on others.

  3. When speaking “scientifically”, there is a basic tenant: You cannot prove a negative. Ergo; There is no supreme being.
