I was about to say I don't question my beliefs, but now that's just not true! I do sometimes think am I completely mad? Often I reply yes, which is good because mad people don't think they're mad.  :-\

I don't know. Maybe the madness in a person tells them they aren't mad, so that it can stay and be mad.

Perhaps. I think a mad person often tells themselves that they aren't mad because if they said they were mad they would be listening to reason.

Everyone questions their beliefs. Its natural to question.
Verily, but the main problem is questioning it without bias. This is practically impossible (everyone's prone to confirmation bias - only looking for evidence that will prove you right and not that which will prove you wrong), but it's a good idea to get as close as possible...

I always find it hard because i love science, and loads of people ask me how i can follow both science and my religion. It annoys me that they can't even understand a little bit

Indeed.
As long as you don't take the religion literally, you can follow both.

One problem, really, is that which religion is truly correct is an objective matter (which means that the scientific method should be applied, mainly), but not one that can really be settled - we have no knowledge of what happens after you do, and most religions claim they're only provable after you die (with reincarnation, heaven/hell, etc. etc.). This lack of evidence, to me, throws doubt on religions, but obviously people can interpret it however they want...

Hmm... This appears to be steering vaguely in the direction of a religious debate. As they tend to not get anywhere, I suggest we try to steer it away...

Every person in the world is mad in their own little ways-it is what makes us who we are.

I fear for your own sanity, Explo, that I am just a little 'too' mad  ;)

It really depends what part of religion you take literally. I take some parts literally, and others i understand that they aren't literal.

yeah, it's good because it tells you when you're being greedy or self centered by punishing you.
