“Only Truth matters. I know the truth; there is no God,”
he proclaimed.

I placed my hands together as if in prayer or worship. With rounded eyes I exclaimed:

“In human form, you appear as insignificant as a speck of dust in this massive, shape-shifting galaxy, which, in itself, is comparable to another – albeit larger – speck of dust floating amid the infinite galaxies beyond, and yet your mind apparently contains great knowledge. Surely you are the highest God, and yet you deny your deity. I bow down to your sacred wisdom and supremacy, but above all, I bow to your remarkable humility.”

I could read his mind:

“But… but…” it said.

Ha! So much for his honours degree in philosophy.

    1. That’s the best way to find faith – through non-belief. It shows an open, intelligent mind. I don’t know claim to know the exact nature of God, but I’m aware that there is a supreme intelligence out there, that listens to us, and I know miracles occur.

      1. I totally agree. I believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, but I think everything about God is bigger than any holy book or mind can possibly contain. All religions, to me, even Christianity, are different lenses through which to view the Unexplained Absolute. Some are clearer than others, but even though I believe in the historicity of Jesus and the redemption He alone offers, I also believe that pieces of truth can be found in every single belief system, Even Christianity is an incomplete picture…I guess we won’t ever know the full nature of existence until we pass on.

        1. I like your open approach. To many religions claim that they have the whole truth and everything else is fiction. Religion doesn’t always mean faith, and religions are often shaped and twisted for political ends. I think that as long as you translate your love for the Divine Being into love and compassion for all creatures, you’re on the right road.
