We live to make things better for all sentient beings-- by doing what needs to be done when, where and how it needs to be done in each situation as it arises, no matter what. That statement requires us to take it on faith. There is no way it can be established to be so by any rational, logical, analytic presentation. No rational, logical, analytic presentation can be made. The people who make theological declarations about the Bible being the infallible word of God (in spite of its glaring defects [Eden not having latitude and longitude, for example]) which they take on faith are also without logical grounds, which is what taking something on faith is all about--operating outside the sphere of reason. So the question: Why take theological propositions on faith and not something else instead-- for example, the opening statement of this discourse? Why one and not the other? Their only fall back response is, "Because why take the chance of going to hell?" which they also make up and take on faith to justify taking the rest of it on faith, leaving untouched the question, "Why take that on faith and not something else instead? What kind of people would conjure up an invisible world they are afraid of to escape by conjuring up a way out that has to be taken on faith?
