I don't discount the POSSIBILITY of a creator of sorts, but just because something is mysterious doesn't mean it's created by god. 200 years ago
if you showed someone a CD player they would have burned you at the stake for practicing witchcraft. How else would you have gotten tiny people to
sing from such a small box? Obviously there's nothing supernatural about it, but because they have no concept of it, they turned to their default
comfort zone - religion. Religion gives some people a sense of protection, purpose, etc. When confronted with something they don't understand they
use it as a sort of security blanket. After all, at least if this unknown thing means me harm, I'll either not die and be saved by God's
intervention, or I'll die and it will have been God's will not to intervene. I strayed a bit from my original thought, but to sum up - To tell a
religious person that there is no God is to take away that security blanket.
I mean no disrespect by any of that - I myself have wondered how any of this existence is possible without some sort of divine entity. But then I
just decide to be undecided and admittedly uninformed about the nature of the universe and that's good enough for me for now.
