The pit of truth
If an athiest wishes to reduce everything down to there is no reason or purpose for the existance of the universe. I have no problem with that. If a atheist is able to accept the evolution of energy to sentient conciousness as a arbitrary event. Then thats they're business. I prefer hope as opposed to nihlism. I am not intellectually brave enough to look into that pit. I am a foolish dreamer.
But what if Truth is in that pit that you won't look into.

Re: The pit of truth
If humanity ever verifys that Universe is nothing more that a arbitrary and absurd state of to "be or not to be." Then what choice will I have but to accept it. And as a man of science I will embrace this knowlege. Even if we somehow mangage to glean this truth does not mean humanity is without hope, our very triumph over this mystery would be cause to celebrate. But for now as we probe and gain more insight the debate over caused or uncaused continues and there is still room for dreamers like me. Take care.
Thanks for the reply. I'd like to respond,but it would be off-topic.
Maybe a new topic about why a world without god would be a world without room for dreamers?
