It is foolish to deny the existence of any creator. Whether you believe in a specific religion or not, it is ignorant to say that there is no being responsible for creation, after all, something cannot derive from nothing.
Now, what many will ask is: “where did God come from?” Now, I’ll answer that question with a question of my own: “where did the Big Bang come from?” Neither of those questions have an answer, and there is no problem with that. There are many things that the human mind cannot comprehend or conceive, perhaps these are an example of such things.
Now, I am a religious skeptic, however I do believe in the ideals and morals held in Christianity, of which I associate myself. However, the existence of God goes far deeper than religion. I can say with 100% certainty, that if for some reason I stopped being a Christian, I would never lose my belief in God. Also, my belief in God does not only stem from a contemplative or religious standpoint. My belief in God also stems from my personal belief that God has been guiding me all this time. I’ve had one too many important “coincidences” occur in my life that I do not believe can be chalked up to “chance”. One particular instance involved a cup of water.
One day when I worked at a Chick-fil-a here in Edgewater, I was cleaning tables. While I was cleaning, I noticed a lone cup of water on one of the tables. Not thinking too much about it I thew it away. Not long after, a gentleman came out of the restroom looking for his water. I apologized and fetched him a new one. After that, he asked me to come over and so I did. And thus, our two and a half hour lecture began. He taught me all about religion, philosophy, politics, and history, all four of which interest me greatly. If it were not for throwing away his cup of water, that lecture would never have happened, and I would not have learned what I did. Mr Eads was his name. It truly was a remarkable experience.
Regardless of whether you follow a religion or not, you should look in your own life, for ways that God, or the creator, has influenced you. Atheism is a foolish ideology, as it denies the existence of any sort of God. The universe is far too complicated; there is a creator to every masterpiece.
