”I wonder what God thinks of us, as we don’t believe in him.”
Michelangelo: The Creation of Adam. Image courtesy of Wikipedia. Recently, some atheists have pondered whether Michelangelo was nearer the truth than they are.
Recently, some atheists have surprised us. First, Bradley Monton defended intelligent design. Then Bruce Sheiman concluded that religion is good for people.
Children of atheist families can also surprise us. A few weeks ago, a Finnish pastor said that he heard the following at a birthday party during the summer. A young atheist kid asked, ”I wonder what God thinks of us, as we don’t believe in him?”
Not a bad question.
