This is the question which has shaken my base of atheism. And this is also the question which clearly demarcates atheists from theists.
The Big Bang, Evolution, Quantum Mechanics, Conservation of Energy...
Agreed. Everything is right.
But do you think that all these happens by chance?
Would you be feeling better attributing a designer to all these, or thinking that it all happened by chance?
This question has shook me in the last few months. I don't know where I heard it from, for I always thought it was like "The Human Brain is very very complex, so don't you think someone should have made it that way?" But when the term 'chance' was involved my mind started conflicting with itself.
For everything else in this physical world, we know the cause, the reason. An apple falls to earth, it is the gravity. Drinking water is essential, water serves various purposes in the body. Rain, evaporation and condensation. War, greed of power.
For everything else, we either know the cause, or we are eager to know it.
But for the cause of "everything", we (I mean the atheists) don't know and we don't care.
We know it all started from the Big Bang. But we don't know what was before it.
We know it all came from a single cell. But we don't know why it is evolving.
We know the electrons carry a charge, and protons yet another. But we don't know how their charges are different.
And we attribute it all to chance. "It so happened." "It is such. "
Why? We never said an apple fall to earth because it is such. We never said it rains because it rains. We never said people wage war because people like war.
But we say that "evolution happens", "there is no time before Big Bang", "protons carry positive charge". We say it but we don't know the reason.
Why are we partial? For everything else, we are ready to find a reason, but regarding creation, we like to answer that it all happened by chance. Isn't that double standards?
P.S. : But the question "Who created God" still exists. And that is why I remain an atheist.
"OMG! Will we ever reach an answer?"
