Faith or Nihilism
After much thinking, I became a Christian. 10 years ago, I moved to northern Canada for a couple of years. Wifi and TV cost an arm and a leg so I had a lot of time to think and that's also where I picked up my love of reading and writing.
A few of the books I read were "Beyond Good and Evil" "The Bible" and "The End of Reason." After reading all these books, I realized that I was living a double life. I wanted to believe that nothing happens after you die. So that I can do whatever I wanted. But I also cherry-picked the beliefs of Christianity that I liked. Even if those beliefs contradicted each other.
Then I remember reading the Bible and thinking. If there is no God, then nothing this book says really matters, even the parts that we all like. Morality would just be based on convenience and there would be no consequences for breaking your moral code. If that is the case then might really does make right. And all the governments of the world are only right and just, because they are the strongest.
I understand that this is a very complex subject. People who are far more intelligent than myself have written extensively on this. So, I'll leave it at this: without God, there is no real justice. Only what's legal. What is legal today, is illegal tomorrow. Which is why I don't base my morality on what is legal.
