Are you willing to die for what you believe in?

I know this is a tough question. But hey, there was nothing else to do.

    No! I would die for my family but not what I believed in. I'd say hold a gun to my head and I'd happily come around to your way if thinking lol

    Absolutely yes, my faith as a Christian is what I FIRST believe in, which drives my reaction to those acts committed against his Perfect Design.

    Of course... but then, it depends on the cause. For instance, I believe in truth, and protecting the people I care about, and I would happily throw myself in front of a bus or a bullet to save them. On the other hand, I also believe that chocolate ice cream is far superior to vanilla, but I'm not going to get into a fight for that.

    Yes, without question......because if your not than your not willing to fight which means you don't truly believe in it

    I'm a scientist. Not only will I not die for 'belief' I won't even hang on to well tested theory if it is disproven tomorrow. We live in a dynamic and changing universe. Even the "laws" of physics are mere suggestions until we get more information. It's so freaking exciting just to read/learn/observe/experience the few things I get to I couldn't possibly have a dull moment. "Beliefs" are like straight jackets. Worse - they're straight jackets of our own imaginations! We make them up and then treat them like they substitute for reality. Forget belief. Go discover the universe!

    If it was part of my "core beliefs" that make me who I am as a person, YES! I do believe though that God would fix it as he did for Daniel in the lion's den. There's also Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego in the fiery furnace. If it was my time to go, I believe my body would feel no pain in the death process.

    Yes and I have proven that.

    However, I think it is much more important to live for what I believe. Dying is easy. Everybody dies. Living according to one's values and principles is tough. I focus on that, on living

    Nah, I'm not 20 anymore. I'm quickly approaching the age where you send others to die for what you believe in :-)

    Besides, very little is worth dying for. The only situation that justifies a high risk of death is when you (or your loved ones) are facing certain death or an equally undesirable fate no matter if you fight back or not.

    I would die for my children and, if my country was attacked, I'd die defending it. But when you ask about dying for a "belief" then the subject becomes rather muddy. You used a picture of Dr. Martin Luther King in your post and I think he's a good example of someone who died, not only for for his beliefs but also for his people and their share of our country and rights. People like him are rare. They put their own lives in jeopardy for the greater good. Bobby Kennedy was another one who died for an ideal that was bigger than just himself.
    They are bright lights that burn out way too early and yet what they accomplished will go on forever, hopefully.

    There has to be a reasonable expectation of payoff by those who would pick up your torch and continue the fight.

    Unless the belief is directly related to the preservation of your soul, and thoughts of the afterlife, there is nothing of this earth worth dying for. The fog of lies that we live under is so thick that it is foolish to die for any of them. Even the American flag symbolizes one of the most potent lies ever invented. That it represents an ideal that, in fact, does not exist or is even in practice, except in futile ritual.

    No, because as an avid reader, I have learned that throughout history people change their beliefs at different stages throughout their lives. A belief is a transient thing: you never know whether an incident in your future will completely flip your belief on something.
    Life is for living and exploring, rather than believing, but that's just how I see it. Others might not.

    Truth is not a transient thing. Ask any scientist. Can we know the truth? I believe we can. Again, ask a scientist...or better yet, just look around you and use your logic.

    scientists don't talk about truths. they talk about theories. Science is regularly tweaking stuff they thought they had down pat. Not long ago they were sure the expansion of the stuff of the universe would eventually begin to slow down, after the big bang as a projectile will eventually slow. But now we're able to chart that the stars and galaxies are actually accelerating away from one another faster, not slower. Our truths are based on our knowledge, and our knowledge keeps expanding, so truth is ever altering.

    There are some truths that are self-evident (down pat). 2 +2 always equals four, and two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen, always makes water. I am well-read, too, and it doesn't even take a scientist to see that the governments that foster free enterprise and liberty prosper, and those that don't do this have a habit of building walls around themselves to keep their own citizens from leaving. It doesn't take a scientist to see that people are still flocking to our country and fleeing their own countries in droves. I only hope our country continues to follow the pattern set before us by the people who founded it. Things we once thought impossible WE are now "tweaking." Think how fast the Berlin Wall fell. It wouldn't take much longer to build a bigger one. And if anyone tries building a wall to imprison ME, I would adjust the stuff I thought I had "down pat" pretty quickly--even if that meant having to defend the self-evident truths that once were taken for granted.
