The Folly of Atheism

In a mother’s womb were two babies.
One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother?” You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

    So your god is all around us? Within his own creation?

    • Dingbat, you’ve been deflecting every time you bring your sorry excuse of an apologist to this blog. You deflect from the topic at hand and ask the same stupid question over and over again, even though it’s been answered so many times?

      Is your god in human excreta, as brother Intellect asked you? 😉

      Does your god know that the earth is round? 😉

  4. which god, of the thousands throughout time that have been worshipped and found to be myth, would you be encouraging others to conceptualize? does he/she/it have a name? is it personal? has it whittena particular book?
    rather than clever little word pictures… please declare which one you believe to be True God and then demonstrate the Truth of its actual existence beyond such deceptive and illusory language.

    • No. But that is irrelevant. It is not good reason enough i belive, to deny the existence of a Creator, the objective nature of morality and the spiritual potential of human beings because of stories that is common in many religious traditions.

      Judeo-christian and islamic traditions contain many fantastic claims of miracles. That is common in that type of genre. They may or may not be literal. But, it does not take away of the rich and indepth theology and spirituality of these religion, about man, her relationship to God, purpose in life etc.

    “You deflect from the topic at hand and ask the same stupid question over and over again, even though it’s been answered so many times?”

    Which not one muslim has been capable of answering because you have no idea who or what you worship. This is clear to anyone who has followed this blog for the past several days.

    On the one hand someone claims that your god cannot enter his creation – and so he is not omni-present – and on the other someone else claims that he is actually all around us and that we are of her.

    that is not islamic I’m afraid – your god has 99 personalities that only reflect actions that he may have taken or might take but tell you nothing about who he is. So he could be evil by nature but does “merciful” things to deceive people like a conman is charming to people he is about to rip off. Your doctrine of god cannot tell you otherwise.

    Excuse the repetition of questions – but I’m as confused as you all seem to be about your nonsensical elusive god.

  8. As a creation we don’t have control over the day we arrive nor the day we die. We don’t have control over nature or climate. So the question is what is what is controlling all of this?

    The answer is one god, the creator, the sustainer, the almighty, the ever forgiving the most merciful.

    We all have our beliefs, so just learn to respect one another.
