On a blog recently I was communicating with a lady who asserted that if there is no God that our lives are pointless, meaningless and we are all just pieces of meat.
I find this disturbing. Not that it is true, but that people can think this way. Let's just be clear. The only thing that we can be certain of in this world, is this world and the experiences we have in it. Even Ratzinger confirms that the thing that believers and nonbelievers can find in common is doubt.
I see that as humans, we love, care, think, create, feel, share, hope, and remember. All of these things seem more than just meat. We learn, study, fly, swim, enjoy, question. There's technology and imagination.
I think of my trip to Yosemite. I've only been one time. It was fleeting. But it was such a beautiful, amazing experience. The depths and scale of the brilliance of nature are almost beyond words. I enjoyed it. It lifts me up. I am glad I have had that experience. Even if it was just for a moment.
What do you think?
