Just a comment to all these "blind-faith"
believers that responded to his/her article so passionately:
The idea of existence he
proposed here received a shivering response of anger and uncertainty
from all the "believers"..
When Old-Wise-Man #1 turned to Old-Wise-Man #2 after a delicious meal of
Snuffalufagous. just after the dawn of man, and proposed the same daunting
realization of a "godless world", I am certain there was a moment of
silence, a gasp of air, and a long troubled night sleep.
Old-Wise-Man #2 awoke the next morning, I bet (dollars to donuts) he had dreamt
up the perfect excuse to avoid that feeling of emptiness - add
"out of their power" took the ease of worrying about existence and the
allowed more worry to be put into catching Snuffalufagouses. This
is where God came in.
humans, are at a point in evolution where we can tell the story, finish it with
a fairy-tale ending. Its not our fault....blame it on the superbrains
(language) and out social behaviour.
folks....Old-Wise-Man #2 had the full opportunity (without bias) to chose a
secure or insecure ending to Old-Wise-Man #1's hypothesis.....he chose to safer,
more comforting ending.....as any human would
