Love and Skepticism And Religion.

This was part of a comment I posted on someone’s blog I wanted to share with all the other skeptics out there because it is true and it means something to me:

 

“On a personal note, congratulations for questioning. Spirituality to me, put in universal terms is simply loving something outside of yourself as much or more than you love yourself. Whether that is god or the truth or a friend or a spouse or a cause. Whether you are setting your own hopes and fears aside to courageously ask difficult questions or setting your own desires aside to change diapers and attend PTA meetings, there is something noble in it. You care more about truth than you do about yourself, and that is love and it is that love that is at the core of the best versions of every religion and philosophy. So keep it up.”
