God Outside The Box
Do atheists disbelieve in God because of a lack of evidence, or simply because the evidence suggests a God that doesn't fit within our natural human expectations?
I suspect the latter, more than the former.
I was in awe of the eastern sky this morning. As the sun set low in the sky, it was hidden behind a mist of clouds exuding hues of blues, pinks and yellows. The imagery inspired a sense of mystery and awe.
My scientific mind would expect a God who can be detected, hence placed under a microscope and observed, measured, predicted and reduced to a set of laws.
This world we live in with its suffering and death, coupled with its beauty and order, suggests that if a God exists, God transcends our imaginations...
Are you willing to believe in a God who is outside of your box?
