The Atheist’s Assumption

A Simple Matter of Framing the Subject

A Simple Matter of Framing the Subject

Though I have never believed in the God of the Bible or Torah or Koran, I—though it wasn’t always so—now see the Divine’s presence in literally everything.

As a former atheist, I feel I’m somewhat of an expert on the attitude of many atheists. This attitude can best be summed up thusly:

Only a fool believes in something where there is no evidence to support it.

I still largely agree with that statement (though fool, to the “new me,” is too strong a word). But the atheist makes a tragically invalid assumption based on that statement.

The Atheist’s Assumption is this:

Since there is no evidence of God, then there is no God.

But that’s flawed logic. The religious could then quite validly counter with the negative form of the above:

Since there is no evidence that there is no God, then there must be a God.

Which is just silly. That’s like saying since there is no evidence that lizard men don’t live under Mt. Shasta, then lizard men must be living under Mt. Shasta.

Both statements are flawed: A lack of evidence does not prove the negative, it just means that belief is required for the positive.

Both the atheist and the religious equally believe in something to which they have no evidence.

The only difference is that the atheists don’t realize they are guilty of an unsubstantiated belief. There is no evidence that there is no God and…

Only a fool believes in something where there is no evidence to support it.

Now I may be a Mystic, but I’m no fool. I know that there is a Divine Intelligence, not because of a belief, but because of a ton of evidenceSynchronicity increasing as the ego fadesquantum waves only collapsing because of consciousness, evidence of the soulthe implications of non-dual enlightenment, ….

I may be a Mystic, but I’m a rational Mystic.

  1. Bonus thought/evidence… From this post:

    All the evidence states that consciousness is required to collapse the wave function of the mysterious and unseen quantum potential into matter, so I ask you this Thanksgiving day, “Whose consciousness collapsed the matter which makes up all the stars and the galaxies and the planets of the Universe? Whose consciousness initiated the collapse and manifestation of the Big Bang?”

  2. I pop in now and then to look at your photos, which I think are amazing. This post caught my eye as I have been thinking about God a lot lately. I most feel his presence when I am walking my dog in the mornings when the world is quiet.

    I really believe one has to close out the world noise and slow down to feel his presence. You don’t need proof if you are sensitive to your surroundings.

    Having faith and demanding evidence are so separate. Faith is more for the creative mind. Evidence is for the logical mind. I prefer to have a creative mind.
