I am not Edward T. Babinski. I merely manage Ed Babinski's blogs, i.e., performing HTML updates and coding of template, etc. If you wish to contact Edward T. Babinski then you can locate him at the following social media sites. I also don't agree with every thing +Edward T. Babinski writes and believe that's okay with E.T. Babinski. Only politics and religions seek to assimilate people across the world into a sheepishly mindless, undifferentiated herd.

Response to +Edward T. Babinski's "Faith is Trying" :

Wake at eight,
drag in late,
drop a dollar,
into the plate.

Parishioners sighing,
yawns begin flying,
skeptics ain't buying.
Secretly "why'ing?"
the preacher is lying.

Watch is ticking,
hunger's kicking,
feet are itching,
next week sermon..
I'll just be skipping.

I always wonder and can not answer why ancient Jews who do not believe in the resurrection were such fervent believers (the Sadducee). Why obey Mosaic laws if there is no reward of a better life, in the afterlife? On the article:
Looking Forward To Your Physically Resurrected Body?
http://edward-t-babinski.blogspot.com/2013/10/looking-forward-to-your-physically.html

There were some among the Jews who believed in physical resurrection, others, spiritual resurrection and some believed in no resurrection at all.

Perhaps their own conscience (God) is speaking to them, subtle, of their personal fate. The author, +Edward T. Babinski has personally expressed hope for something better, "hope" for an afterlife... perhaps that is God speaking to him about his personal fate. He has hope. I do not have an opinion. Only wonder, who knows what a God will choose to do?

I believe that the stuff that bonds people together as more than only superficial lovers -- the bonds of friendship, admiration, kindness, goodness, charity, compassion, patience that is what all major religions teach, universally to strive to be like, "God-like" in us. That part of us, goes on... it never dies, it returns from where it came.
Even the parable of Jesus about the servants who were given a small amount of money and they return to their master, one hid his talent, one flittered his, one increased his with a profit... it is about bearing spiritual fruit... producing... with what we are given.
What we do with our life with what time we have, in regard to others, matters.
Even naturalists would agree, that humans are not meant to be alone like solitary creatures... we are meant to function as a society, and comes with the responsibility to help others.
Love defies all the naturalist explanations of the nihilistic "parasite eat parasite" ... we would be something worse than Darwin's mere ape if not for "Love" and human principles which require us to function like civilized citizens of the little blue marble in space which we all share and call "home." Some express a greater capacity toward love than others, but as the author of the article admits,

That thing in each of us, that "inner window of morality" that is already within all of us, whether or not we follow a religion)... he is correct about its existence. That is the infinite, eternal God in us.

Also, I will add, perhaps I am wrong but a recurring and disturbing thought often occurs to me lately.

Most Religion it seems is about a "Search for Self."
(That is, men create god(s) in their own image. They tend to pick and choose which verses from among what they call sacred texts is inspired and which is not, and rationalize many ways, how they want to interpret. Religion is what people bring to it.

Practicing "Spiritual Faith" is the personal search for God, a sentient deity. Many join religions only in search for physical gaps in themselves. Often told they are "Lost". "Lost how?" "A lost soul."

Some Atheists may even be an embodiment of one who has truly found them-self in a mad world, but are no closer to a single truth about God.. but nor are the religious.

Ed sent to me years ago, and including the need to complete editing a lot of other stuff which has been crying out for being cleaned up.
