If there is no God, we don’t make sense,
I do not accept this premise. Please explain.
I find we make less sense with god. The omnipotent creator of all being created the universe to display his glory to us? It is all there for us. Really? In xianity, we are the center of the universe. Without god, we are insignificant, barely existant specks of mostly water that the universe does not notice. I find the former to be the height of ego, while the latter more accurate.
He created two prototypes in a paradise garden and left in it a tree from which he did not want them to eat and a serpent which may or may not have been god's sworn enemy? Really? Sounds like a bumbling "omnipotent" being set them up for failure.
According to xian theology, people are the most awful, disgusting, horrible creatures worthy only of destruction while simultaneously being the most precious, important things god loves infinitely and above all else. Really? T
We are supposed to be "above" animals, different from them, better than them. Yet, by any definition of the word, we are
animals. There is nothing not animal-like about us. We follow every rule of biology and natural law that every other animal does. We may have more developed brains, but so what? Every animal has its specialty. It seems to me that this would make perfect sense in light of evolution.
Maybe if we were made out of stainless steel and actually broke laws of the universe I would find it convincing that some magical power were behind it all.
so how do we explain human longings and desire for the transcendent?
It produces chemicals in our brain that feel good.
How do we even explain human questions for meaning and purpose, or inner thoughts like, why do I feel unfulfilled or empty? Why do we hunger for the spiritual, and how do we explain these longings if nothing can exist beyond the material world?
