Hello, I'm a theist and atheist at the same time

Yes, that is how I define myself. I'm both at the same time, therefore I could as well be none.

I don't believe in believe. That being said, I believe that we are all transparent to Nature which we humans make part of. All things known and unknown are plenty as they are, so much so that everyone is biased to conserve their own identity that is the manifestation of that which is stranger than we can suppose.

But one thing I know for sure!
I am an animal, I have the same necessities as other beings and there is the unfathomable mystery.

And at this constant contradition lies the conservation of infinity.

Besides that all is poetry, and I like poetry because knowledge without emotion (hence biased) is sterile and has no use.

You what?

You do things you don't believe in?

Why on earth would you want to do things you don't believe work for you?

I think you should look to the title of the topic - we all do contradictory and confounding things.
