If God didn't create us...
My friend Mike just sent me this brilliant look at the Sumerians and their probable confusion at the Judeo Christian God running through the creation of the world while they were on it.
It makes me wonder so much. I get so many bewildered stares and sorrowful looks from those close to me when they discover that I think that God probably doesn't exist.
They think it is so sad. Many of them argue that I'll probably become a 'bad' person. If you read part of my blog, you'll see that some have even put forth the argument that I am the most unfriendly neighbor they know. While that may be true from his stand point, the truth is that I just don't sell out my friendship cheap. But that's a different story.
My point is, what if it were suddenly discovered and completely believed and understood beyond any measure that God didn't exist. At that point, each of those sorrowful people would have a very important decision to make. Having the understand that God doesn't exist, do you choose to act differently? Do you choose now to become less generous? Would you choose to remove charity and kindness to others from your character attributes?
If your answer is no, you can now understand why I can still maintain my good character, even though I believe God probably doesn't exist.
