Dmcauliffe, What can answer philosophical questions? Even reason and logic are opinion's held by each individual. I can think an argument is logical and another might view it as illogical. The same goes for religion some might see it as logical while others view it as illogical. For me personally philosophy has helped strengthen my faith in God by questioning religion. Who killed Jesus? The Jewish pharacies. Why? Becuase of his open questioning and disregard for thier religion. Who created christianity? Paul not Jesus. What I get from this is that Jesus hated religion and wanted people to be individual's and have their own personal belief's based on their personal investigation of the world. Instead of being followers of religion. By practicing philosophy I came to this conclusion. I decided to question and I got my own answer. So back to what can answer philosophical questions? Only the individual through his own pursuit/investigation of the world he lives in. Philosophy helped me create my own personal faith. So are they really VS. eachother? or opposites? In my personal experience they are not.
