When your faith fails in light of evidence or lack thereof. You might wonder how all those years you believed, God seemed to be there for you. He always knew your fears, he always shared your innermost thoughts and feelings. You might even have secretly believed God was a she because she knew you so well.
The best explanation for it when you conclude there is zero evidence for God is this. God was in your head all along. You made him up to help you and like a childhood imaginary friend it worked. You searched and cried and pleaded and ultimately you answered your own prayers.
The most liberating realization post belief is this: The divine you needed was in you all along. You have the ability to save you! Knowing that also means you know it’s up to us to make the world a better place cause God sure ain’t gonna do it. – Thus saith the Fridge
“Let’s think the unthinkable, let’s do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.” ~ Douglas Adams
Good observation.Who knew that being a good person involved just deciding to do that and not because of or in spite of an orgainization you might belong to.I have said it for years “God” gets morality from people not the other way around.Reminds me of the old joke.A preacher driving by a beautifully cared for field with neat rows of grain growing well fenced and maintained was most impressed by this beautiful sight so he went up to the farmer who was working and made the comment.Yoy have a beautiful field and God has blessed you greatly with such a wonderful piece of land that he creasted for you.You should be very greatful.The farmer stopped what he was doing and looked at the preacher for a moment and said.Your right Reverend and I am greatful but you should have seen it when God had it all to himself.Cheers
