I don’t want to sound arrogant or anything if any theists are reading this. I just wanted to express this as food for thought. Were I still a Christian, then my post is something that I’d be eager to chew on in order to challenge my faith and see how I fare.
because I was able to rationalize most ways of challenging my faith, while still retaining my faith. But studying the brain knocked me flat out on my feet, and I couldn’t hold on to my faith after knowing what I knew about how our brains actually function. It’s a better explanation of how to interpret and understand reality without appealing to a god or superstition.
