Happy New Year! It's a great day to think about God, who He is, and why we trust in Him. So you're in luck, because it's also challenge day. Today's challenge is from a post on the Why I'm Atheist blog:
As Lawrence Krauss put it: "We constitute a 1% bit of pollution in a universe that’s 30% dark matter and 70% dark energy. We are completely irrelevant. Why such a universe in which we are so irrelevant would be made for us is beyond me."
And that’s why I’m atheist. That’s why, in such an age of scientific, rational thought, religion, to me at least, is not only wrong, but offensive. It could only take an ignorant mind to claim that this universe was designed, intelligently of all things, for such an insignificant race.
Now it's up to you. Do you have an answer? Leave your ideas in the comments below, and then on Thursday Brett will post a video with his response.
[UPDATE 1/03: Brett is currently fighting the flu, but he should have his voice back by next week, so look for his response then. In the meantime, feel free to continue the conversation below.]
