Amazing fine tuning occurs in the laws that make this complexity possible. Realization of the complexity of what is accomplished makes it very difficult not to use the word ‘miraculous’ without taking a stand as to the ontological status of the word.
If there is a God that has special plans for humans, then He has taken very great pains to hide His concern for us. To me it would seem impolite if not impious to bother such a God with our prayers.
If there is a God, I want to see him. I don’t want to just hear some holy roller shouting about him.
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
It is my view that these circumstances indicate the universe was created for man to live in.
You can’t convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep seated need to believe
If I believe in God and life after death and you do not, and if there is no God, we both lose when we die. However, if there is a God, you still lose and I gain everything.
If there is a God, you owe him far more than a morally decent life.
Nobody can tell what is right and what is wrong; what is righteous and what is evil. Even if there is a god and I had his teachings right before me, I would think it through and decide if that was right or wrong myself.
Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
If there is a God, he is within. You don’t ask God to give you things, you depend on God for your inner theme.
If there be a God and one has never sought him, it will be small consolation to remember that one could not get proof of his existence.
