AR says:
A sense of wonder started men philosophizing, in ancient times as well as today. Their wondering is aroused, first, by trivial matters; but they continue on from there to wonder about less mundane matters such as the changes of the moon, sun, and stars, and the beginnings of the universe. What is the result of this wonderment, this puzzlement? An awesome feeling of ignorance. Men began to philosophize, therefore, to escape ignorance. [Aristotle]

Stacy wrote (on the thread titled "Is Christianity losing respectability? Why?"):

> Christians don't have to adapt to the world,
> the world have to adapt to us.
> We are the guideline for the world to follow.
> That's the problem with the world today,
> they expect Christians to be different
> and yet because we are different
> the world complains
> that we should fit in.
> We are not going to fit in
> and we will never fit in
> because we don't have to try to be like you,
> it's you that have to try to be like us.

Perhaps the arrogance displayed in Stacy's post illustrates a valid answer to that thread's title question?

'Religions are different roads converging on the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads so long as we reach the same goal? I believe that all religions of the world are true more or less. I say "more or less" because I believe that everything the human hand touches, by reason of the very fact that human beings are imperfect, becomes imperfect.'

-Mahatma Gandhi

"God's plan for mankind is WAY more important than the economy or even the environment. Why waste time and money on trying to 'fix' the environment, for example, which is essentially unfixable? Why do I say this, you ask? Because the earth is dying at God's will, and nothing is going to stop it. What a waste to try and thwart God's eternal plan!!"

S. Friedman says:
If you want intellect, ask yourself how it is that you are able to breathe automatically without thinking about it. Ask yourself how the world was created. Ask yourself how the Earth is able to stay on its axis without falling away. The answer is GOD. He keeps everything going. How do I know? FAITH.

--Lily, from the "IS Christianity objectively credible?" thread
