I recently had a discussion with a friend who has studied multiple religions, HATES organized religion, yet claims to KNOW that God exists. He can't define what that God is, or why he knows it (and he admits it sounds silly) so I figured I'd throw that out and see if there is anyone else with similar views who could help him describe it. I personally think that it's just his leftover indoctrination from his upbringing in organized religion and when he cast it off, he kept this small nugget with him to give him comfort. I believe his inability to define or explain it is a psychological defense mechanism to prevent his logical mind from removing that last hook of comfortable delusion that would cast him away into the chasm of the unknown which he was raised to be fearful of. What say you?
