  1. Faith in itself, goals in itself, common sense in itself. By the way, it is quite common sense to believe in God, since believers are easier to survive existential crises and other neuroses.

    Faith is generally different. And when it is considered, balanced and internally justified, it helps to achieve very ambitious goals.

    Actually, the presence of god does not contradict science, and Popper seems to be telling us that we cannot determine the impossibility empirically (that is, we cannot prove the absence of god) so why not believe in it?

  2. I don't agree.

    If the child trusts their parents,

    then they try to put everything they can into it.

    God, knowing a person's faith in Him, will never put Him to shame.

    He will constantly guide it in both the earthly and spiritual aspects ,


    and arrange it in the best possible way for that person.

    Including when the goals are met,

    They say if God does not guard the house ,

    the watchmen's efforts are in vain…

    Common sense is a relative concept .

    Fascism, aggression, murder, drugs…for some, this is beyond common sense

    for others, it's different..

  3. Common sense always dictates to do good and fight evil. Unless, of course, the person is not a complete fool and not a complete egoist. Oddly enough, this is exactly what God wants us to do. And there's nothing supernatural about it.

  4. So in God or the supernatural. This may be news to you, but these are different “things”…Faith in God can not interfere with common sense in any way because God himself is his (common sense) incarnation, and if you believe in the supernatural here you need to be careful because it is he who has the task of depriving you of this very common sense and achieving goals… You just need to figure it out and make a choice.

  5. Mish, you're mixing it up again.�

    First, the equality of God and the supernatural. There is a fairly common opinion that God is generally the most natural thing that can be, since he is the first foundation of everything.

    Secondly. Faith in God can be very, very different, as well as concepts of common sense. There are people who perceive God at the kindergarten level, as a man who lives in heaven, and monitors whether teenagers masturbate under blankets. And there are much more reasonable options that reconcile any religion. And sometimes they do not contradict reasonable atheism (oddly enough). Because so much depends on what exactly you call God.

    Third. To be honest, I don't think that faith in God prevents someone from achieving any goals. In front of. Quite often, people draw strength for many things from religion and faith. Again, it all depends on what your goals are. If, for example, you set out to fuck your neighbor's wife, then faith in God may hinder you, because you have heard something about adultery, and some disciplinary penalties for it from heaven. Most often, faith helps itself to do things. Remember that saying, ” God give me strength.” What do you think doesn't work? Maybe autosuggestion doesn't work either?))

  6. This is quite variable. To answer your question, you need to think about how much this very belief will affect aspects of such a person's life. As practice shows, despite the popularity of various trends (agnosticism, atheism, etc.), a very large percentage of the world's population, as you put it, still believes in God. I am sure that you, like any other person, have had a chance to communicate with believers in your life. What can you say about this? Does it bother them? I'm sure not. They feel great in society, communicate well and live a wonderful life. The question is whether you mean fanatical believers. It is really very difficult for them to look at the situation soberly and make adequate decisions that are somehow connected with the canons and beliefs that their religion has established. There are also those who can start harassment on the basis of religion, but, fortunately, in most civilized states there is a mechanism for protecting the right to worship. In general, everything is good, which is in moderation. As long as it doesn't become a fanatical meaning of life, it doesn't do any harm.
