Simply because what you are struggling with Micheal is something that I have gone through as well.

What you say in your post is exactly right, we are strongly bound by our physical being.

You have no reason to believe this so you will just have to trust me, but I am a scientist in the medical sciences. I am completely inculcated in the scientific method and, pretty much follow an evidence based life.

We are programmed to do a lot of things by our chemistry, we are programmed to seek food, reproduce and seek shelter. We are hardwired to seek the companionship of fellow humans.

We are also programmed to love.

To me the desire to accept christ was a very natural extension of that program. It came out of love and not definitive physical evidence that he was the son of god or any of that.

To me, he was a real man and he made a real sacrifice for us. He taught us how to live peaceful lives and brought the hope (another program in my opinion) of something bigger than ourselves.

I still go to work everyday and do my research and try to understand all of the chemicals and pulses in our body, how they impact our lives, and how they can go horribly wrong.

And I accept the love that my brain tells me to feel.
