This paper is a philosophical investigation into the nature and grounds of religious beliefs. The author tries to answer questions regarding the nature of God, the immortality of the soul, the nature of miracles, and the problem of evil. The author uses the writings of Einstein, Russell, Freud and Nietzsche, who pondered these larger questions. A newspaper article is attached/
From the Paper:"There are barriers to the belief of God as much today as there was at the beginning of time. And there have always been those that argue for and against such an existence. The process of faith, of belief is something of a struggle even for those that don't spend a day without the strong after taste of their daily prayer. Religion offers a sense of belonging, a sense of closeness, a sense of meaning in a sometimes cold world. But secularism offers its own set of strengths and reliefs that are not found in religion. But this biggest argument concerning religion is the one that comes because of the deep contrast it makes with the laws of science; somehow, things have just never lined up. We live in a world that says, "If you can't see it, it can't be true.""
