沒有信仰

從有記憶以來,一度以為宗教會是我的信仰,但這樣的以為沒有維持多久,當知道唸佛宗與禪宗等等流派後,便以宗教不是信仰而感到受挫,當年大二修了一門通識課程,商學院教授發揮置入式行銷到最大極限,理財之名行傳到之實,而且無論怎樣都能扯上關係,最後乾脆召喚同伴一起來當小老師帶我們進入神的領域,此等熱心,只感到極度的厭惡,對於如此的終極信仰,抱持完全不信任之感。

而什麼也不相信的我,學了數學之前還抱持一絲希望,那可是傳說中真理的存在。很不幸地,它當然也不是。從邏輯上的 Godel 不完備定理,到許多書刊指證歷歷,數學不過是人為構造的世界,全然地 artificial(跟 superficial 這字眼字義與發音有異曲同工之妙),最後感悟到,沒有信仰即是信仰。無全然真實之事物,如同佛家所說的「諸行無常,諸法無我,涅盤寂靜」。

沒有信仰的信仰,判隨而來的是無所依靠。

  1. It is so interesting and intriguing…

    Even Godel proved that math is based on some axioms that you can never ask “why” again.
    So, what the hell is the truth? 😀

    I have some interesting questions pounding in my head too….

    I’m not sure if I agree to Richard Dawkins, the British Secular humanist. For me, I’m still searching for the truth too. Maybe agnostic, but I have strong moral values.

    From my experience in life, I feel I happen to believe and have an interest in Religions because of the profound understanding of love and compassion, instead of superstitious sentiment. Here is what Swami Vivekananda said, “Religion is a realization, not talk, not doctrines, nor theories, however beautiful all these may be. Religion is being and becoming, not hearing or acknowledging. It is not an intellectual assent; but the transformation of one’s whole life.” Indeed, after one humbles himself/herself to religion, they have a more profound understanding of humanity, and it softens their edges, makes them more tolerant and respectful of others’ needs.

    Another interesting quote :
    Religion is truest to every man/women, even it stands low scale in philosophical comparison.

    When I was young, I used to believe that intellectual ability & Science can solve any problems, but now I finally sublime to the concept that only the intelligence of love and compassion can solve all the problems in life.

    Einstein said, “Religion without Science is blind, Science without religion is lame.” I pretty much agree to what he said. We human are too petty and humble in this universe. So I hold it agnostic….I’m not sure if the frontier scientists have proven this problem yet.

    hmm…..you got any insights and idea?

  2. btw, I major in Cognitive Science.
    If you have any courses in Taiwan that is interesting, please let me know. Perhaps we can share some info & insights? 🙂

  3. Of course.

    However, I manage to meet the English proficiency required by most universities in U.S and U.K. I will not spend time here until achieving the ideal result.

  4. ??? I’m sorry. Maybe you think too much…I have no other intentions except sharing some thoughts :S I do have a stable boy friend in US and we are serious. I merely hope to do some Networking and share some info for future career success. In US you just have to be more proactive and outgoing in some way to make friends.

    Perhaps I should not do that to Asian, or just pretend I’m a guy online? 😛
    The culture is indeed quite different and subtle. Some are just suspicious of other people’s motivations. I grew up in Taiwan so I know that well, and I can understand your concern since you have a girl friend.

    Best luck to your University applications!
    I believe we will both be very busy. I’m applying for phD too. 🙂

    • lol. You think too much, too. I just mean that I won’t spend too much time posting new essays or something else except replying. In addition, I didn’t even notice your female name! Maybe, the way I use the English language makes you confused.
