Irrational Faith

Faith is a fundamental part of the human experience. It gives us hope, helps us cope with adversity, and inspires us to achieve our dreams. But what happens when our faith is irrational? Is it still valid, or are we just fooling ourselves?

Almost all faith in the world is irrational. It comes in different sizes and flavours, from religious beliefs to superstitions. And yet faith continues to play a crucial role in our lives.

Take religion, for example. It’s one of the most widespread forms of irrational faith. Millions of people worldwide believe in deities, holy books, and the afterlife, despite the lack of scientific evidence. While religion can be harmful to society in many ways, it can also bring comfort, guidance, and a sense of purpose to many believers.

You have to believe in something. And it’s okay if that something is irrational, as long as it’s not hurting anyone. For many of us, our irrational thoughts and beliefs serve as a source of comfort and motivation.

One of the irrational ideas I strongly believe in is – “everything happens for a reason.” Objectively, that’s not true. Sometimes things just happen, and there’s no rhyme or reason behind it. But believing in this idea can help us make sense of our lives and find meaning in even the most difficult circumstances.

Irrational faith can also be a double-edged sword. It can lead us to delusion and self-deception, preventing us from seeing the world as it is. Like everything else in life, we should strike a balance between faith and reason by questioning our beliefs and critically examining them.

I believe having some faith is essential for leading a meaningful life. Whether it’s a belief in a higher power, the power of love, or simply the idea that things will get better, faith gives us the strength and resilience we need to face life’s challenges.

Have faith. Don’t judge. Don’t harm. Live and let live.
