This personal quote of mine means a lot to me. As I continue to talk to people of all ages and races all over the world about various religions, one thing remains the same: many of them consciously choose ignorance and logically explain their decision.
They simply don't want to know.
I've heard "I know all I need to know about God; let's talk about something else." I've also been told "Everything you say makes perfect sense and that scares the hell out of me, so stop—there is a god!"
Can any of you explain why anyone would not want the truth, and instead remain ignorant of facts just to not feel uncomfortable about their belief?
After all, isn't the truth really what's important?
