I've seen a number of questions lately about "Why DON'T you believe" which got me to thinking... Why does someone need a reason NOT to believe? Why can't they simply have reasons TO believe as they do?
If someone believes in what they believe, chances are they have their reasons, they have seen proof in one form or another to make them believe as they do... Why do they need a reason NOT to believe other things? Why can't it simply be enough for them to have cause to believe something else, which simply cancels out belief in something else?
I, for example, believe in Many Gods & Goddesses, I have seen proof of this by my own standards and feel my beliefs are correct (if I didn't they wouldn't be my beliefs)... However, this belief of and in itself stops me from being able to believe in a singular God head... I don't have cause NOT to believe, I simply DO believe something else. Why isn't that enough? Why do I need more?
I have my own reasons and I certainly don't need to justify them. I don't have any problems with my beliefs, it's other people who have the problem and that's not MY problem.
