Looking at His son,TheAtheist, God had the uncomfortable feeling that He failed him and He felt guilty, powerless…
Now the big hopes were resting with the younger one, TheAgnostic. He reminded Him of His youth when right after finishing the big project He doubted Himself for a second. Then somehow He got up and browsed the whole creation and felt proud:
16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
Following, an extract from meus intuitus, a nice blog recently discovered while looking up agnostic using the wordpress tool tags. Some of his thoughts hit home so I felt like sharing them with you:
Though there is much that we humans have learned in our world, there is infinitely more that we do not know. We must remember this. We must be humble.
“No God” and “no afterlife” is just as grounded in faith as Yahweh, Jesus, and Cthulhu. Atheism denies the existence of God. Atheism commits the very sin that it denounces: Certainty of the uncertain. I suppose that I am agnostic, but agnostic carries a cold connotation—a sort of academic uncertainty in the concept of God. This is not my agnosticism.
Mine is a deep, spiritual, and hopeful uncertainty. It is in this warm uncertainty that I find solace now.
It feels nice… knowing that there is no knowing.
