My position on deism, God, and so on
I am a special case in that I am not interested in answering the question, because I feel that I cannot answer and the question itself is ill-defined. But I am interested in showing logical fallacies in people's arguments who have a firm stance.
I am certainly puzzled about our existence, about the origins of the laws of physics, and about consciousness. And I am happy to admit that science cannot currently give answers to these questions and never will for some.
I also believe that the belief of God provides motivation to act and meaning in life. But this effect is not dependent on there being a God.
And I believe that goodness in people is not dependent on whether they believe in a form of God or not.
