Giving Thanks This Thnanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. This year I have recently been given something to be thankful for. You see, as a skeptic and an atheist I try to maintain an open mind. I frequently remind myself that I could be wrong about a host of subjects, including my disbelief in alien visitations, the Loch Ness monster, bigfoot, and even gods. I try to stay open to new information that would prove any of these subjects, and many others. The big "What If?" if you will.
But aid in my doubt came from an unexpected source this year, and just before Thanksgiving. Coincidence? Of course it is. But nevertheless, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to that source.
Lee2216, in my moment of doubt you have really came through for me in giving me not one, but two proofs against the existence of god. Now I can sleep well knowing that since everything must have a creator that there is no infinitely powerful god, because that god would have to have a creator more powerful than it, and so on Ad infinitum. And you also showed me that any god would wind down in heat death through the drain of entropy.
You have restored my faithlessness, Lee2216, and I do appreciate it. Now I feel renewed, invigorated, and more confident to carry the message of atheism to even more people. I can only hope that your Thanksgiving has been as enlightening as my own.
