Isn't everything meaningless without faith in anything beyond this life?

Even if it is highly unlikely, shouldn't we all have some degree of faith in something more? What's the point of living life with no hope of something greater than the observable, physical world?

  • May 19 2011: Isn't everything meaningless without faith?

    Could that be the question?

    I'm not quite sure....
    Lately, "observable, physical world"
    seems so... OK, to me....

    And I can see that "physical" and
    "observable" doesn't seem to be
    synonyms...

    Law of electric charge conservation
    is observable but not physical. Law
    of gravity is observable but not
    physical. And they are all real,
    aren't they?

    Isn't that peculiar?
