We are now in the year of 2005 and the majority of the world’s population still clings to antedeluvian beliefs in an intervening God of their choice be it Yewah, Allah, Buddha or others.
This has always been completely baffling to me. When a child reaches the age of reason, say six or seven, the child realizes that it is impossible for a man to fly around in the sky on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, that a little girl cannot walk through a mirror and into a strange new world and that there could never be a gigantic beanstalk housing a giant at it’s top. Yet this same child will carry into adulthood the belief that an enormous sea could be parted to allow people to walk to the other side, that a man could survive in a whale’s stomach and a woman could be turned into pile of salt to cite just a few of innumerable such incredulous concepts. Am I an atheist?… no. Do I believe in a surpreme power? Yes, I just don’t think he or she is religious.
