There is no empirical proof for our origins.
Again, you are incorrect, as I pointed out above. And, until you can refute my assertion, your submission is moot (i.e. nothing more than an unsupported opinion).
Since there is no empirical proof of our origins no religion or philosophy has a foundation for our origins except what their beliefs and faith lead them to.
Again, the first part of your sentence is incorrect, but the second part is correct. Everyone taking a stand, is doing so on faith. Those who follow the evidence (cause and effect [etceteraÃ¢â‚¬Â¦]) have a great deal of Ã¢â‚¬Å“empiricalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ evidence to back up their assertions; those who donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t (i.e. Ã¢â‚¬Å“something coming from nothingÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“life from non-lifeÃ¢â‚¬Â, everything coming from Ã¢â‚¬Å“mathematical pointsÃ¢â‚¬Â [etcetera]) asre proceeding on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Blind FaithÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Those are no foundations at all are they?
Actually, yes there are. And there are plenty of evidences for those foundations. The problem is, none of those evidences comport with the atheistic philosophy.
I know Atheists like to claim that their view is not faith based. I cannot agree with that sentiment.
Yes, most of them do. But they are making that assumption on faith as well. And on that you and I agree it seems.
Believing in something (or not believing in something) without empirical evidence is faith based. That is ok. I just wish they would accept it.
Believing for something, and believing against something, is still believing! And it is still a Ã¢â‚¬Å“faith basedÃ¢â‚¬Â proposition. And the more one becomes dogmatic about that stance, the more Ã¢â‚¬Å“religiousÃ¢â‚¬Â they become.
Personally, I will believe there is the possibility of a God until science can empirically prove the big bang and show that it was a natural, and not God made, occurrence. I doubt that will happen in my life time, if ever.
Empirically proving the big bang doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t disprove God. And implying a naturalistic causation for the universe doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t negate God either. It just begs the question! Ã¢â‚¬Å“WhatÃ¢â‚¬Â, or Ã¢â‚¬Å“WhoÃ¢â‚¬Â, set it all in motion? And attempting to extend that out-and-out to an infinite regress is illogical. There logically HAD to be an originator! And atheistic philosophy has NO answer for this!
I cannot believe in any religion thus far proposed by man.
And that is your faith statement.
