Trying to reconcile the new age ideas of science with devout Hindu religious atmosphere at my home, I stumbled upon the realization that religion in its most purest form is more ridiculous than imagining nomination of George W Bush for Nobel peace prize. For quite some time I fought with myself. I could not imagine the world without god. I was basically $h!t scared to reject the notion of god in totality. What if god is there? He’ll screw me royally .. err godly … if I deny his existence. But then the reasonable voice in me told me, what if He really exists? He’ll rather you doubted him and then discovered Him than just blindly accepted Him. I became an atheist!
To me, an theist does not completely deny the possibility of existence of god. He just thinks that given the known facts as of today, it is very less likely that life was created by anybody and it’s way more likely that life just happened and then evolved. I think genuine doubt is the most scientific approach one could ever take in this matter.
The purpose of this blog is to pen down various thoughts as they occur to me and to have fruitful conversation with other intelligent minds on this subject.
