I used to be an agnostic then an Atheist after my nephew died in a car crash a few days before he was born and the law of the UK said that because he
didn't take his first breath he wasn't legally a person - I know and then after my Mum had a heart attack and needed a triple heart bypass a few
years ago, I sort of prayed my heart out. Now I know people say well that's a bit bat spit crazy, so I like to think that I've been on both sides of
the fence, but through all that, I've had two constant ideas when it comes to Religion -
1 - Being agnostic or an Atheist is still a religion is a sense. You absolutely, definitely believe that there is nothing after the end. That life was
born into a once empty void which became a universe out of chance and from that came humans and everything else - That's a belief that you hold and
so that is a religion, of course that is how I see it.
2 - I have never and would never insult someones intelligence for their beliefs. I dont point at a scientologist and laugh about their belief (even
though some might say that's a very hard thing to do). I dont mock people who believe that pigs are scared or cows (sorry dont know which). I let
those who choose to believe, believe and those who wish not to, well I leave it to them.
My basic idea and reasoning behind god and the grand design is actually a pretty simple one. One that has yet to be disprove after it was first
thought up (cant remember who it was) and it comes down to maths. - Nothing, plus Nothing equals everything.
Tell me how that is possible. Show me where Nothing (which is what at this time, science says was before the big bang) added with nothing (Remember
the big bang is the birth of the universe currently at least) equals everything that was, is and ever will be in the universe, you cant.
And one more thing, My theory on there being a creator is simply this - The creator only helps in small ways, ways that would always leave that
nagging question of 'Is there some one out there creating all this' in our minds and let mankind and all life in the universe live their lives in
the way they choose.
Thanks for reading and sorry if its a rant.
