I decided to write this blog because I believe that a life without religion is depressing and unfulfilling. I write, not to convince you or to win you over, but to present a point of view that you may not have previously considered. I simply aim to aid you in forming your own views and opinions because I believe that life is something worth contemplating to the full. So I encourage you to give this a read regardless of your current religion or viewpoint.
To give you some idea of my background, I am a British male living in South-East England. Before I came to religion I was a nihilist. Nihilism is a subsection of atheism believing that, not only is there no world beyond the natural world as we see it, but that after death your consciousness ceases to exist and your being becomes extinct – you cease to exist. Many people hold this view without recognising its implications and I intend to explore this in greater detail on this blog.
A couple of years ago, I became a Christian. I am not going to lie and say that these blogs will be completely objective because I don’t believe that is possible. This blog’s primary objective is to convince people of the validity of religion but, of course, as a Christian I would love for followers of this blog to come to Christianity over other religions. Although, please be put at ease, because I am not going to be blogging about Christianity as a focus.
I welcome criticism and counter-arguments to my page. I hope you understand that I, being human, have not fully formulated my opinion on life, the universe and everything and can be both incorrect and convinced of other views. This, to me, is the only way to live my life – with an open mind.
I hope that you decide to follow me as I explore some simply mind-blowing and thought-provoking topics to encourage a naturally philosophical mind.
