I constantly struggle with the concept of life and our origins. I think nature and life are wonderful and completely beyond comprehension.. I sometimes wonder if there is a god who created all of my reality.. all that i see and hear. It has to be more than random chance, amino acids and evolution..hasn't it? That's what I tell myself when I look around at the beauty and complexity of nature.
The main stumbling block for me though, when I see these arguments and posts is that NOBODY knows the answers and we all struggle with the same questions.
I could google famous muslim scientists and get some results as well as famous atheist scientists. In fact, I would bet that many scientists have varying beliefs.. so which one should I trust?
I think that if you already have your mindset then you will use anything to reinforce those beliefs.. whether that be religion or any specific conspiracy in general.
On a final note.. recent events have made me question the nature of my own reality and my robust atheist doctrine is not as robust as it used to be.. however, I do not trust someone of a specific faith who claims to know the answers when the keyword is 'faith'.
The new atheist was a complete idiot though
