← Unbelievable: From Atheism to Christian Faith

SPS's Avatar Jump to comment 128 by SPS

For all the juxtapositioning to fit it to reality, faith is ultimately unsatisfying, and can never serve to be an end in itself. It is more a light shone in the eyes to distract from the darkness of ignorance at the end of religion's tunnel. As an emotional buffer, it's effect is temporary. It is at best an emotional placeholder until you can grasp onto something real, and its use less a means of perspective than a distorter of retrospect.
