Religion, Believing The Unproven Does It Help to Be Happy? Part 1

I don’t eat peanut butter. I find it repulsive and will go out of my way to not eat things with peanut butter.

People have often told me that I’m missing out. That food is so much better with peanut butter. “You’ve never had a Reese’s Cup? Or a PB&J? How can you be happy without having had peanut butter?”

The answer is, I’m plenty happy because it’s not important to me. It’s not something I require. I had my taste and quickly realized that I wasn’t missing out at all.

When someone asks “Can you be happy without believing in God?” what they’re really saying is “I don’t think I could be happy without believing in God.”

They’re projecting their feelings about religion onto others. They’re assuming their experiences are the only experiences.

We all do it to some extent, but it’s important to recognize that just because someone requires religion to be happy, that doesn’t mean that others do. I’m actually happier not believing in any religion? What if I asked you how you could be happy while being religious.

People might think that’s funny. That it seems obvious how being religious makes them happier.

It’s the same for me. Of course, I’m happy without believing in any religion—and why couldn’t you be?

The religious God is a PB&J and I don’t need either of them to be happy. But that’s just me.

How can anyone oppose the non-existent, and debate it fervently on the Internet? It is a waste of time. The radical and fanatical religious will never try to understand, they will never have an open mind.

Thursday Facts Let Us Think A Little?: Religion And Science

RELIGION AND SCIENCE ARE INCOMPATIBLE

They’re incompatible, because they both compete to find truths about the universe and life itself. There are some fundamental truths that believers have to accept in order to be religious. Scientists do not have to accept anything in order to be researchers, just observe, follow the scientific method and prove the fact. Religion is based on believes, not facts.

What do You Think Happens After Death?

I am wondering what the prevailing opinions are on this topic. In my opinion the possible options are:

1) An afterlife of some sort.
2) Nothingness
3) Karmic reincarnation.
4) Other?

afterlife dra martha castro tijuana mexio california america

Personally, I hope there’s an afterlife of some sort. But nothing has been proven. The First Law of thermodynamics: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”—Einstein, would only “prove” that even mosquitoes would have an afterlife? Or maybe that energy is just different, human energy more evolved, recycled/transformed?

afterlife dra martha castro tijuana mexio california america

There are so many areas to explore, in physics, medicine, biology, chemistry, philosophy. I am currently studying quantum physics, space-time, and these theories make my brain wonder even more about life and death: 1) The Parallel Universes Theory and 2) The String Theory

So, scientifically I don’t have any answers, But I hope there is something amazingly better “out there” that our brains cannot comprehend yet, something that science still needs to explore and discover. Some sort of evolved energy we are transformed to after we die, maybe?

afterlife dra martha castro tijuana mexio california america

Our earth is beautiful indeed. The human body and all living organisms are amazing. But the behavior of humanity can be so disappointing and harmful to many that it would be pointless if this life were the only one we have to.

And if it is, then we should all make the best out of it: treat each other with respect, dignity, kindness and loyalty, I would like to evolve, to continue to live, to extend my and others’ life,

To me, every moment of my life is sacred, I live deeply every emotion and thought, pain and joy, I don’t waste my time believing in unicorns, in fairy tails. I hope, because I don’t fear. But I live, and I do it intensely,

Do you know that when we die helium is released after a very interesting and complex chemical decomposition reactions of the human body and it -helium- goes up to the atmosphere and then to the universe? That is a fact.

That being said, I trust science, but I love philosophy and I love my life too, so I will be a life extension for as long as I live and then, I hope, I can only hope… there is an afterlife of some sort.

But there might not be an afterlife after all. Who knows, nobody does.

Lastly, I want to point something out about Dr, Stephen Hawking, whom I have great admiration for his research in science. However, I respectfully disagree when he referred to computers no having an afterlife. I laughed when I read this, I thought that he was joking (he was a funny guy) so I did some research and nope, he wasn’t being funny at all, he was death serious.

How can anyone compare the human brain with a computer in terms of living or dying? But I will give him the benefit of the doubt since he was a very smart guy… I must be misunderstanding his quote?

When it comes to medicine and biology, I have noticed that most physicists make statements I disagree with, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson included. Anyways, here is the quote:

Religion God Science Fear or Hope?

First Do Not Harm

religion dra martha castro tijuana mexico california americas

When we are born our parents or caretakers try to teach us what they were taught by their parents.

Most of us were told that there is a God in heaven and that if we are good girls or boys we will go there one day. Later (if our parents were kind enough not to scare us with the existence of hell at a very young age), when we grow up a little they tell us that there is a place with flames and very hot where people who misbehave go when they die.

Do They Exist?

religion dra martha castro tijuana mexico california americas

I think this idea of heaven and hell is taught in one way or another pretty much by all religions. Fear and hope.

I grew up believing in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Yes, Catholic, in Mexico. I even went 12 years to a Catholic school, full of beautiful, funny and sometimes angry nuns if anyone of us dared to upset them! But, seriously, I had a great time there. I remember my life being very happy at primary and secondary school with the nuns.

Remembering The Nuns with Love

Then, when I went to medical school my brain started to ask many questions to science. I learned, My curiosity grew. I studied more and my questions expanded in number and complexity. Decades have gone by and I still have thousands of questions. I have found the logical answer for many of them, and yet, many still without an answer.

But it’s okay. Curiosity has made me learned so much about the brain and many other areas of science, that the more I learn the more doubts I have. It’s a beautiful curiosity vicious cycle!

…And I Am The Goddess? …. j/k 😇

Yes, I do not believe anymore in what my wonderful nuns from my childhood and my parents taught me about their religious God. I am one hundred percent irreligious. But I don’t pretend to know the whole truth. Even science makes mistakes.
