Last night i was having a heavy conversation with a friend of mine.
He is way older than me.
And wiser, of course.
But, what he said is illogical for me.
You know that i’m agnostic and i choose it that way.
I believe that there’s GOD. I just don’t believe in such a religion or belief.
I think i’ve said something similar before. But here’s the story.
We’re drinking coffee late night after practice and this conversation start in such a way i can’t think of before.
“In my home area there is tuyul. I do not believe there are still many people who believe in the occult. How can you believe in such a creature that can not be seen?”
(Toyol or Tuyul is a mythical spirit in Malay mythology of South-East Asia, especially in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore. A person who owns a toyol uses it mainly to steal things from other people, or to do mischief. According to a well-known superstition, if money or jewelry keeps disappearing mysteriously from your house, a toyol might be responsible. One way to ward off a toyol is to place some needles under your money, for toyols are afraid of being hurt by needles. —wikipedia.org)
And to that statement, I accidentally responded with a sentence that may sound unpleasant for him.
FYI, this person is very religious. He is a very devoted muslims.
I said, “Well then, why do you believe in your God if you can’t see Him?”
He said something like it’s totally different and it can’t be put together.
Well, i said it’s not your right to speak such a thing. Because it was said on Holy Qur’an that God create devil and Jin even before He create us, human.
Why don’t you believe that there are such a creature that can’t be seen?
And about occult thing, aren’t all human beings entitled to choose the path they trust themselves?
I never speak about what right or wrong about life, except for myself.
