Yet there’s little serious investigation into why people believe, or why some will kill and die for their faith.

    I’ve got an interest in atheist blogs (as well as Buddhism) but recently started getting quite frustrated with some of the atheist blogs that I used to browse through. They tend to indulge in never-ending confrontational debate with believers which can get needlessly aggressive and entrenches both sides in their convictions… round and round in circles it goes all the time… never resolving anything.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    With best wishes,

    I am agnostic, in the literal sense: I know that I don’t know, and I don’t believe anyone else does, either. As far as Zen is concerned, it is non-theistic.

    Thanks for commenting. 🙂
