I’ve been reading a new blog lately as she intermittantly posts and one thing she said recently is, “although I am an atheist and fairly ‘out’ about it, I’ve been trying to avoid writing about it too much because I don’t want this to turn into an atheist blog…”
It resonates with me in that although I consider myself a deist, I don’t have the intention of this being a resource for Deism. Although, considering, a HUGE percentage of my small number of hits per day comes from people searching out Deism, maybe I should be a little more blatant about my view of the world from my deist perspective.
So even though I don’t consider this blog a deist resource, I couldn’t help but post this video on people’s different perspective of God. It comes from Rainn Wilson’s website, SoulPancake. I was surprised by the number of people who said they were atheists.
My answer would be, “No.”
The reason I say no isn’t because I think God is infallible but because I don’t believe God manipulates or intervenes in human affairs. So there are no mistakes to be made. I believe God set down the laws of physics and we are slowly uncovering how the universe works. I think God is standing on the sideline cheering us on watching us hoping we’ll make a touchdown now and again.
That’s just my take. I could be completely wrong.
So here’s a snazzy little chart that shows the answers of the 27 people poled in the video below.
Hey… so what would your answer be and why.
