Francis Crick, the discoverer of DNA, who just recently passed away, never could believe that life sprang from the earth ex nihilo. The likelihood of this event was so statistically unlikely as to be utterly preposterous. Yet he could never admit the possibility of divine intervention. So he came up with his notion of "directed panspermia", that is, that the earth had to have been seeded by alien beings in the remote past. And this guy had a Nobel Prize in biology! It takes an awful lot of education to be this eccentric.
It is the fatal conceit of modern man to deny God under any and all circumstances. This conceit lies at the heart of all that is wrong with our world today.
Well said. I refer to this as "ignorant arrogance."
When man can't "figure out" God, or be given "proof," he concludes God must not exist.
How pathetically naive. To say, in effect, "I can't explain this, therefore it does not exist."
