February 19th

People who are so absolutely certain that there is no god are just as annoying as those who believe that there definitely is a god. I think it's very arrogant to think that you are so knowledgeable about the universe that you can say for sure whether or not there is a deity. If you have faith in a god, that's fine, but you should always be willing to admit the fact that your belief is based solely on faith, not facts. On the flip side, theoretically, some god could make him/itself known to mankind. So atheists also have to accept that there is a chance that there could be some sort of deity. I personally think that there are a lot of flaws with theism (for example, if God created the universe, which is billions of miles wide, why is Earth, a microscopic speck among planets and stars, the only place with humans (according to the Bible)?) There are plenty of other things I could go into, but that's for another time. I am, like I think everyone should be, in a constant process of learning about what I do and don't believe. People who just believe something but never bother to learn more or expand their views and are just static about their beliefs frustrate me.

Anyway, that's my blurb on religion for tonight. My eyes are unbearably dry and I want to go to bed.
