What are some myths about your religion
Facts and Myths
What is truth That God created the world in seven days or that there was a big bang and an evolution of billions of years? That climate change is caused by humans with all of its dramatic consequences, as recently shown by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, or that there are normal fluctuations on earth between ice ages and warm times?

What is the truth: That school educates our children and young people or that we actually have a very good school system that is appreciated by a large number of pupils? That people from other countries can integrate relatively well in Austria or that full integration will never really succeed? Do election posters speak the truth when they talk about fairness, justice and change? What is truth

The Bible is not a physics book
The physicists of the 17th and 18th centuries already asked themselves this question: Copernicus and Kepler and Galileo Galilei, all of them were very religious people and confronted with the fact that their scientific findings did not necessarily match what was known from the Bible up to then had read out. But: There cannot be two truths, they stated at the time: If God created the world, then that is the work of God. And if God wrote the Bible, let it be the Word of God. God cannot contradict himself so that he says something different in his word than in his work. So the word of God has apparently been misunderstood up to now. It must be understood differently so that it fits the work of God.
The Bible is not a physics book that provides information about how the world came into being. The Bible is a book of faith that says something about how people can feel in our world. Namely safe and secure because everything was done beautifully for us. This inspires you to be amazed and to enjoy nature and to respect creation. Germanic myths, on the other hand, let the earth emerge from a battle of the gods. These myths tend to create an insecure attitude towards life. Always at the mercy, always in fear of what the gods are up to next.
Myths and facts are two facets of truth. Facts are the truth that can be measured, calculated, looked at and proven. Myths are emotional truths that say something about the meaning and meaning of what happened. Myths and facts belong together. We cannot live without our senses and without science, but we cannot do without feelings and interpretations either. The more consciously we reflect on facts and myths and differentiate them from one another, the more we approach a possible truth a little. One cannot generalize the feelings of myths. They apply to some people, but not to all. Feelings are diverse, just as myths are. Some people really manage to feel secure in God's hand, for them the biblical creation myth is truth, others feel fearful and insecure, they see the Bible as a mere fairy tale.

What feelings do the myths of the election posters create in us? Or is it not about myths, about expressions of feeling? Is it really about facts? But what are facts today? Facts? Alternative facts? Fake news? What else can i believe Who is telling the truth today? Who can i choose? The party that makes me feel the best because it tells the most beautiful myths? Myths that correspond to my emotional truth, but not that of other people?
I have to take my time. I really have to read through the party programs and not just the abridged posters. I have to compare facts with other sources. Do not immediately believe everything that a party or a group says. Do research. Perhaps there are other findings, other scientific results. Because I want to be a citizen who thinks independently, an educated Austrian who makes an emotionally and factually well thought-out choice.
