CarolAnn, I never meant that you or anyone else impose your beliefs on others.
I'm talking about the way theists and other supernaturalists force things to MAKE SENSE in your own head by inventing god or any other supernatural explanation for things that we can't understand (yet) through natural means.
I just meant to add to this discussion the idea that belief in the supernatural is the result of fear of the unknown (what happens after death, the meaning of life).
Rather than accepting the mystery and the pain that often comes with it, supernaturalists invent explanations. And if the explanation sounds ludicrous, they of course have the built in argument - "God (or whatever) works in mysterious ways."
It's nothing more than postulation. Rather than just saying life and mother nature are full of mysteries, we say life and mother nature do make sense because god (or whatever) has a plan/meaning in mind. We just can't see it because god (or whatever) is full of mystery.
Either way we end with mystery. Why create the extra character? It just bogs down the story (life).
