Why do you think so? Do you think a higher self canít think?

Maybe I should have said the source of my convictions is not pure logic but rather:
logic + observations/experience + intuition.

It might be true that intuition can be a source of wisdom. But you have to use logic and rationality to prove if your intuition is consistent within itself and consistent with your observations.

If you just blindly trust your intuition you never can be sure if it is correct. Many fundamentalistic Christs or Islamists would certainly say that their intuition tells them that their religion is the one and only truth. But is it? Also Hitler might have had the intuition that what he did was right and good. But was it?

So you see: You can use intuition as a source of your convictions but if you use it without logic control you are skating on thin ice. If you rely on pure intuition without logic testing, all the content of your belief can be wrong. I myself could take no person serious who blindly believes all sorts of things that come into his mind.

An atheist would say the same thing.

Have you ever had other worldly experiences, I've had quite a few which have given me a certain conviction towards my spiritual beliefs.

I can’t assess if atheism or whatever-you-believe is more likely because I don’t know your exact doctrine. However, from a strict rational standpoint atheism isn’t as likely as many atheists might think. Atheism is just another form of religion (the religion that there is nothing more than matter). Although atheists are experts in denying that.

But whether or not atheism makes sense, the point is that if anyone’s convictions came from any form of ideology, i.e. something he has adopted from someone else or something he read here or heard there, you can’t give a damn s**t about it! (I hope this phrase is correct, I’m not native English as I already mentioned.)

What do you mean with “worldly experiences” in this context?
I had a lot of spiritual experiences, where I experienced that I am more than just a brain. I experienced myself as a soul, as a complex structure of energy. And I permanently make the experience that the things that happen in my life follow a precise plan that leads to a very unique form of evolution. (I can tell you more about that if you are interested.)
