To Redmond: on the "absurdity that God exists"

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: RESPONSE TO "CONCERNED CITIZEN"

Submitted by Goran A. (Israel), Jan 12, 2008 at 01:45

You write to a respondent on this page:

"I don't hate your imaginary deity, as that would be as absurd as believing it exists" .

Your (and my) brain consists of (at least) one hundred BLLION (100.000.000.000) WELL-ORGANIZED neuron cells - which are themselves sets of many BILLIONS of WELL-ORGAZED complex (organic) molecules!

That would be, all in all, at least 100.000.000.

Do you seriously think all these complex molecules got themselves WELL-ORGANIZED by sheer CHANCE ?!

You may not believe the Power that organized them does not exists, but to claim that belief in the existence of such Power is absurd is itself absurd!

You see, just because religious institutions have discredited the idea of religions - that in no way affects the spiritual Truth of what most religions sprang from.

So while I too (like you presumably) do not think that God is an old man with a beard 7 or 8 miles up in clouds in the sky, and that he automatically roots for a certain country (in this case the USA), I do believe God is the ultimate POWER that is disposed to assist wherever there is striving for justice and freedom. THAT is what is meant by "God is on our side in this war". And THAT is why most Americans believe their country is often (though not always and in everything) blessed.

1.000.000.000.000.000.000 complex well-organized molecules. Please read the previous sentence twice.
