This quotation of coralville's (#16276, AF) really speaks to me.< At the risk of being unintentionally insulting, I have to say that I don't think we are all that different. For many, perhaps most, decisions in life I try to be the objective and rational empiricist. Examples include when deciding what car to buy, where to live, what stocks to invest in. However, I find that for the most important choices in life, e.g., who to marry, who to be friends with, which career, what should be the foundation of my moral beliefs, I use a more subjective and intuitive process. I suspect most of you do as well. Which is why I ultimately don't understand why many here seem to believe that while a transcendental feeling of love is reason enough to pick a (hopefully) life-long mate, analogous inspiration is somehow intellectually insufficent for a belief in God. Just personal preference I suppose. >The next to the last sentence is the heart of the matter in understanding atheists, IMHO. Or rather, why I don't understand them. I still enjoy that board---most of the time :-)Rick, the glampig (and fan of coralville)
