THE CENSUS AND RELIGION: faith and the average Australian.

Jun 29th, 2017 by Arnold Jago in Australia, Faith, Multiculturalism, Truth

The Census says Australia’s biggest religious category is now “no religion”.
But isn’t saying you have “no religion” a lie – or at least a misunderstanding?
If religion means a “system of faith”, then we’ve all got one.
You get out of bed. You put faith in the floor remaining a reality while you’re putting faith in its support.
“No-religion” persons often put faith in the “certainty” of science.
Yet the thing most certain about science is that it can’t give certainty.
Tomorrow science will tell us that what it said today was wrong.
Our other objects of worship – money, sport, sex etc. – are fleeting distractions.
Far from certainty, they give you dumbing-down.
Anybody willing to spare some time can think his way through to three basic certainties:
(1) God exists.
(2) Our souls are immortal.
(3) There is a Natural Moral Law distinguishing good from evil.
