SCRIPTURE: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” –Psalms 53:1. [source]
COMMENTARY: If even a fool can figure it out, I’m not sure what your problem is. But maybe you’ve just never honestly considered why you don’t believe in Odin or Hecate or Zeus or Anansi. Take a moment and figure that out, then see if those same reasons could possibly be applied to your own god. And if you decide that you still believe anyway, take a moment to list the reasons that you do, and then honestly ask yourself if those reasons could be applied to Odin, Hecate, Zeus, or Anansi. These gods weren’t just cute mythology stories to the people who believed in them. They believed just as strongly as you believe in your god. How is it possible that they were so wrong about their gods, but you’re not about your own? You and I are both atheists about thousands of gods worshipped throughout human history. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
