Interesting Dialogue between an Atheist and Seeker! [Trollville]
Seeker : How are you?
Atheist : Doing fine, How about You?
Seeker: Fine, May I know your thoughts on the meaning of life, morality and God?
Atheist: With pleasure, First of all I am not a “Believer” and I don’t go by faith, We Atheists are more science driven and rational, we need evidence, hard evidence to accept anything!
Seeker: Wow! I am impressed with your position, so what do you think about meaning of life
Atheist: No God, Life has no meaning, no absolute morals; we are just dancing for the music of our DNA!
Seeker: So the only absolute truth is there is no absolute truth isn’t?
Atheist: huh…yes but you see we go by evidence so we cannot accept God. We don’t believe anything with out evidence
Seeker: Well, What do you think about the earth and the universe that we are living in, my friend claims that as best proof for an intelligent creator?
Atheist: hmmm…we ‘believe’ there was matter, energy and time….hmmm 10 to 20 billion years ago suddenly (?) there was an explosion, a BIG explosion then universe popped into existence…
Seeker: well, it sounds like a fairy tail…but what is your evidence to prove this theory
Atheist: Scientists are still working on evidences but I have faith in scientists
Seeker: Are these scientists are reliable to believe?
Atheist: Oh pretty much; however they keep changing their views and so called facts but I still ‘believe’ them
Seeker: so after your death, it is very much possible that some one can come up with a different hypothesis which is totally contradictory to what you believe now isn’t?
Seeker: What do you think about the origin of life?
Atheist: we believe that the early earth was so hot and hostile, there is an ocean of organic soup, and earth was bombarded by meteors and all of sudden a simple life came from amino acids
Seeker: Interesting! Is it possible to create a ‘simple’ life from lifeless chemicals? Did any one achieve it with all the modern technologies and sophisticated facilities?
Atheist: Hmm..not so far, The more we know about life , the more complex it seems to be…there were lot of attempts to simulate the condition of early earth but unfortunately the tests were proven to kill life than producing life. I believe one day we will achieve it
Seeker: Wow! You are too rational!
