Yup, even if I am a commited non-theist and think the possibility of a omnipotent God is extremely unlikely, I love that the universe is still so full of secrets and our understanding of the meaning of life and the universe is so beautifully incomplete and open to philosophical wondering. Because of this I will never truly identify as an atheist except in polerised debate.
Not at all. It is asking why, if I am going to be dead in a week, why go to work today? If atheists are right, the end of everything is the end of everything; at that time nothing we have done will make a difference
Who creates a world which is so full of injustice & pain ?! ,, Atheism is not just about them not believing there is a god, but on the assumption that there is one, what kind of god is he ?? ~~ Stephen Fry
I love Ricky...a bit too snarky for me sometimes, because I think people should believe in a god if that's what they need to believe in, but I've thought this very same thing all throughout my adult life.
