It's very interesting that you post this. I've gone through many stages of belief and disbelief and would love to find peace in my *belief system.* The guy I am dating now went from devout Muslim to an agnostic because he couldn't deal with the brutality he sees in the world. After talking to him about these things, I again find myself struggling with faith.
You also mentioned your *scientific brain.* I have read that faith comes more easily to those who have a larger prefrontal cortex (I think that's the part of the brain, forgive me if I'm wrong.) Which I found to be very interesting. Scientific types don't have real *strength* in this area, it seems.
I feel happy for people with strong faith in God. I wish I were one of them, but it waxes and wanes as things in my life change. If you have any insight, I'd love to hear it.
