I'm a very empathetic person. I can put myself in other people's shoes in very high levels. Our internal universe of the mind, seems to have a longing for the missing chunk of meaning and purpose. The how and the why of creation. I can see the doubt. I can see the skepticism. I can feel the fear. I can feel the loneliness that causes frustration. That it's "on us" to complete the puzzle subjectively. The core of all athiesm is rooted in physical evidence and personal proof as a reservation that couples with expectation. All the arguments boil down to this. I feel this is the only topic that demands attention. Without assertions, lets examine some facts and questions?
Fact 1. We do not know.
We do not know how this reality is possible. We do not know what's beyond this reality. We do not know how or where this came from or why. We do not know what happens when we die but yet we have a sense of eternity (hence the great debate) We do not know. We do not know. We do not know.
So life will always be in the questioning of one's self (not others). No one will be able to answer for what's inside of you. The Mirror of Truth. It begs the question, who is that, inside of you?
Since we do not know. Then why can't any of us just leave it alone? We should just be able to leave it at that. Ah, but there is this silly conviction that won't seem to go away. What created all of this? What gave us life? Out of all the countless forms of life, why are we hue-mans the only ones singled out to have these convictions? There seems to be a significance about it? We should be able to see all sorts of creatures in some progression of evolution gaining some kind of questioning intellect. But we don't, it's only us. Why are we the only corrupted part of nature, where we use everything in a delusional perversion of what was intended? Leaving the world worse and worse for our children's generations to come? No other species is doing this? Why are we the only threat to life? Constantly coming up with new ways to save the planet that we are killing? Why does history repeat? There must be a part of the human condition that is flawed, that no other living thing has. What could it be?
Fact 2. We are created by design or by random accident.
I don't know which one is is more frightening? If there is no significance about us being singled out over all created things? If it were just random accident? Then oh my goodness. Everything goes, no rules, survival of the fittest and dog eat dog, do what thou wilt becomes the whole of the law. None of it's ever going to matter without a master placer. No meaning, no purpose, no time that will last. What about an Afterlife? Who knows? Once again, without a intelligent master placer of design, there wouldn't be a distinguishable afterlife. If there is some random afterlife? Would Hitler get the same thing as Dr Martin Luther King Jr? Or would it matter? Nothing would be there to appropriate correct Incorruptible judgment in any way. Random accidents is all we are. Looks kind of like the world we live in today. With the way people live. There is no source of information that validates the authority on this. So let your imagination fire away.
If there is design behind creation? What would that be? Would it be intentional? Would it be powerful? Would it be personal? Would it know what it is doing? Would it have a plan? Would there be information that validates this authority? Would we want to know?
Fact 3. We haven't seen the ending.
If there is an end game to all of this? What do you think it would be? I guess death is going to be the only complete proof. I wonder if who we are, what we choose and determine, matters? As we cross the threshold of death. "The big reveal" sounds so exciting.... Do you need more proof? Or are you ready?
