How do they connect the dots?
So.... everytime I dare to share my beliefs.... or should I say disbeliefs, I always hear the same thing. Excuse me while I rant.
Every believer says the same thing. "Look around you at the beauty of the world, look at how all the ecosystems co-exist, yada, yada... How can you not believe that there is intelligence behind it?"
So here's what makes me crazy.... yeah, ok, MAYBE there is some intelligence greater than ours, who knows? But how on earth do you get from that to the idea that this great intelligence listens to your prayers, loves you, or cares about whether or not you commit a "sin"?
I just had a conversation with an otherwise intelligent person. They seem to just jump from A to B without a second thought. It's so completely irrational, I just can't wrap my head around it.
Iknow I'm preaching to the choir, but sometimes I just need to rant
