Let us have question mark as symbol of Faith! Hope this will help us question the blind faith. Interesting thing with blind faith is – none of the blind faith follower (believer) wants to accept that – “his/her’s is blind faith”.
Question mark as symbol and the book of faith should contain questions on everything – what, how, when, why, who and where. Everything written in the book should have question. Questioning every assumption, every belief and every point raised in the name of faith.
I was thinking about the religious books, the point to make symbol of faith as “?” is because many a times asking questions and raising opposing thoughts are not accepted in many religions. Earth is round was contested and people are killing just because their religious book states that. How long will we and should we accept these stupid things?
Question mark in different shape, size, color and gender. Let us not spare any kind of division!
I remember reading that the Buddha said – “…Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it…”
There are religious atrocities everywhere these days, if we question everything and then decide to take action will we not reduce many unnecessary atrocities?
