    Losing faith is normal in an era of nihilism. You must embrace the eternal madness and the meaningless of the universe.

            I had faith in God and so I believed. I was born into Christianity and believed it until I read into Biblical criticism. Then I became Muslim, though now I am losing hope in it too, due to its rejection of certain agreed upon historical facts. Thus I find myself in a situation where all of Abrahamism might be bullshit. If that’s not good enough for you, then I suppose I’m not academically prepared enough to answer your question.

            I think what you're getting at is that you assumed a creator God to be true from the start, you didn't come to a conclusion that he exists. There was no basis for your faith.

            Well start there. You need to know whether god exists or not. William Lane Craig and John Lennox are representatives of what's called classical apologetics. Cornelius van Til, John Frame, Greg Bahnsen represent presuppositional apologetics.

            You can find their books on libgen, or lectures and debates on youtube

            Your perspective is utterly flawed: our faith is how we know God exists. Rational arguments for God, no matter how sensible, never convince infidels because they view reality with a completely different set of assumptions that are prejudiced against theism. I'm not saying telling this guy to "just have faith" is going to convince him, but giving him a reading list is probably even less productive. God created us with knowledge of Him, we don't need to shift through a bunch of literally who authors to understand and know God.

            This is exactly what everyone would assume without original sin. It is only because of our depravity that we instead choose to believe in a world where atheism is presumed to be the default, and God must be demonstrated with logic, even though God is the proof of everything.

            Monotheism is a very recent invention, anon. What people develop without outside influences is polytheism, every time. Unless you're a literal ethnic israelite then your own ancestors were polytheists and worshipped a wide selection of gods and goddesses until they were converted to christianity at the point of a sword.

            As I said, the consequences of the Fall mean idolatry is all too common, but that doesn't mean knowledge of the One was completely out of reach for sages who looked hard enough. The Bhagavad Gita could almost be a Christian text if you ignore all the stuff about reincarnation in it. Strictly speaking the worship of gods isn't even a religious practice, it's just a waste of time.

        Losing faith in God, especially in the God of a specific religion, doesn't mean that you have to lose your spirituality. And frankly, if you're at this point
        >I find myself in a situation where all of Abrahamism might be bullshit
        then it sounds like you've been making excellent spiritual progress in your life. The God of Abraham is a literal demon and if you're ready to reject him then you're ready to graduate to something better.

        Outgrowing what you used to believe is an important part of life. Your life isn't losing meaning, you're just in between meanings. You've realized that you've been following a false meaning and the next step is figuring out what you should really be following.

        Common case of being too stupid to hold any meaningful believes. Don't take it to the heart, I'm not trying to offend you. Many cases, especially among zoomers, who really want to be different and cool, but are too dumb and/or lowatetion to learn and comprehend actuall meaning behind the believes. Radical jumping to the opposite side of the previous hardcore believes is a telltale sign of being ignorant fool. Your switch to Islam means that you recognise Christianity as a false idiology, that means that you are as a fool followed wrong path and devoted your life to it, what makes you think that your new opsesion wil be a smart choice? You never made one in the first place. If you ever had stupid idiology in you adolescent years, you are irredeemable retared, no matter how much you switch them. No point in discussing anything, you will just blindly follow new popular contrarian believe. It will probably be orthodox or atheistic nationalism, or communism something stupid like that.

        Same, but my faith is stronger than ever. I believe that God protected what needs to be known, otherwise, he'd intercede. God's more concerned with people following his commandments than he is with record keeping.

    I know God exists.
    I can't lose faith, because losing faith would mean losing the ability to predict the future and losing confidence in my own judgement.
    If your issue is about a cookie cutter God that has been constructed and condensed in meaning by others that came before you, then I'm sorry you feel like that, but God does exists and is everything.
    Me, you, everyone and everything else interconnected by it.
    God is as real as we are.
    As long as you are alive you'll have faith, be it strong or weak is for you to decide.
    I can only pray for you to be strong.

        Spoken in extremely simple terms: I can predict simple events like you answering my reply, or you not answering.
        That is not derived from intelligence or rationality, but the delusion of it, because as far as I know I could also die before any of that happened, and obviously I'm deducing a series of simple events that are likely to happen, but could also never happen, as the universe's laws could suddently be rewritten by some singularity and change everything we all know.
        My delusion would come from the appearance of an orderly system that was created for us, and based on a degree of intellect, but guided mostly by unaware madness.

        My faith could indeed move mountains, but not as you picture it.
        >It is possible to regain confidence in your judgment through your intelligence
        You don't need intelligence to have faith, in fact intelligence can both help and hinder the process of developing a strong faith.

    understandable since the world is going to shit and suffering is increasing. but also is the knowledge and the ease. you should project the drive for a better world in a religious lens. personally, in judaism this is "tikkun olam", fixing the world and making it better for all humans so God can come down to earth. i dont know the muslim equivalent to this but there must be one.

      In Christianity we have the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations and preach the Gospel to every creature.

      With this seems to come an obligation to help those who need it - Jesus said whatever we don't do for the least of us (that is, the worst off) we don't do for him. I think the desire to do this comes with genuine faith since those who don't do so get cast into Hell with the Devil and his fallen angels (which happens if you don't have faith)

    There is no possible explanation for god. He has to be believed in by the soul willing to take a leap of faith. Only with that leap, one can find truth. I was an atheist for several years and depressed. Then I found god.

    The way I see it, their was either an initial point, an endless cycle or an incomprehensible set of changing physical laws.
    an intial point implies creation, creation leading to self awareness indicates that there is another self aware force, therefore a god
    If cyclical, everything happens constantly, high quality of life and reduced suffering coming from the philosophies of people believing in an initial point also happens so constantly that associated forces and entities must be good.
    if incomprehensible ever changing law, some good entity or force happens as much as we do, if there's no god now, there was and/or will be.

    If you are White, you naturally follow Odin.
    The truth of the Germanic Gods is so deep in our DNA, even if we got babptized en masse to benefit trade relations, we still largely do classic Germanic feasts, Christmas has nothing to do with the dead israelite homosexual neither does Eastern, we bastardized the sandBlack person religion, whorshipping the trve gods is in our blood.
    The wrath of Odin will come down, after the sandBlack folk and israelites slaughtered each other we will have to adapt to the trve believe to defend our kin. 1488

      You extrapolaite Christian values to European paganism, which is eetarded and out you as a falsewhite homosexual. Europeans do not "worship" anyone. All the rituals were made for fun and t explain to wives why we need to make a lot of food and drink whole day. No one gives a shit what Odin thinks, because he thinks what we decide him think. Pagans gods are made to explain to children and stupid people smart things they wouldn't understand. But go ahead and worship someone, like a submissive bottom you are

    It depends on the definition of God that you use. And when you assume a definition, you gotta admit you don't know if it exists, if you don't. But:
    For me the meaning of life is the pursuit of happiness without taking the happiness from others and helping others to have happiness. Happiness would be the basic biological, psychological, social etc needs.
