I would like to put forward a point.
Many atheists (no such thing as one but that's a matter for later*) believe that the universe 'just is' to put it quite simply. Or rather 'just
occured'. To imagine this they place you with this image to help you see it all better...
There is a bad of red balls and black balls. There is only one red ball but there are 10^(Universal chance**) black balls. You also have then
10^(Universal chance)+1 people. They each pick out a ball, but don't let anyone else see it. They know how many balls are in the bag, and what
colours they are.
Eventually a person will pull out the red ball, knowing the impossible odds. The red ball is the universe, and we are holding the red ball. We can
only see that we have a universe at this point in time and therefore we comprehend that it is near impossible for us to be here.
This is an 'atheist' argument as if to state that we are living in possibly the 10^(Universal chance) timeth universe and so are quite right to
assume that we are here simply by chance.
Hard to get your head round? If you understand it up to this point, and you consider yourself an 'atheist', you may think there is some truth to
this. Unfortunatley the 'atheist logic' which so many of the blind or lost rely on turns against them:
Who's holding the bag?
(If you're not liking poetic conclusions, its basically saying, what's the stage for this all to happen? Are there multiple universes that come and
go? What sets the change? Who tells the next person to come up and take a ball?)
*There is no such thing as an atheist - all people are either theists or agnostics, as 'atheist' dogmatic logic presumes that there must always be
doubt in someone's mind to their own non-beliefs. Someone who has no faith in God, (and this has been proven) , is actually doubting themselves all
the time, unsure whether they are right in believing there is no God. Therefore they are agnostics - unsure.
**Universal chance - the overall chance of the universe occuring as it is has been calculated to a number beyond comprehension. It is certainly not
10^158. However this number is not stated in my post as I am yet to find a certain number for it from more than one source. The fact the universe has
such a small chance of existing, in a logical mind, brings to another interesting point that all atheist-leaning-agnostics wish they never heard.
