Miracles. Very hard to argue against because like God, we are told it’s simply out of our comprehension.
Which is fine. If we are expected to believe in miracles yet remain unable to understand them, then fuck it. It’s not worth my time nor my respect.
Obviously however it’s much more simple than this. Those that believe in miracles fail to understand that in this unpredictable world, weird things are going to happen.
It would be weirder if we had complete consistency in anything. If weird occurances did not occur.
Check out this baseball player dropping his bat.
You could say there is something more to this. Please dont! It makes much more sense to assume after millions of dropped bats, something like this is long overdue.
Instead of taking into account that miracles usually contradict logic and reason and therefore probably do not occur, theists believe it makes much more sense to assume they do happen but with the aid of a deity.
Despite knowing that people cannot walk on water or turn water into wine, if an ancient story tells us that someone could, it is more likely to have happened than not. Apparantly.
Not true. If you decide to believe something happened which contradicts the laws of nature without the evidence, what’s the reasoning?
That’s right, bias.
Bias keeps the world religious. You refuse to believe bullshit on a daily basis but when the religion you were born into states something ridiculous, your desire for evidence and reasoning is turned on it’s head.
Maybe your grandchildren will realise the the hypocrisy here. Our society is still too reluctant to believe that the story we were brought up with from birth may be a lie.
Thinking rationally is more satisfying than you may believe, give it a shot.
