As humans we have the sense to make our own decisions
FROM the beginning of time, mankind has the urge to understand the universe and creation. For many, this urge has been satisfied by belief in a Supreme Being (God).
To prove or disprove the existence of this power, regardless of considerable effort (Thomas Paine included), is inconclusive.
What is irrefutable is that the human animal has a choice (conscience) to choose between the power for good or evil.
In this supposedly enlightened and liberal age, why are we suffering the ills outlined in John Scobbie’s letter together with the fact that hundreds of babies are removed from delinquent parents to save them from harm?
Why, for instance, is that great invention the World Wide Web gratuitously dominated by unpleasant and hurtful content? It did not start that way but was subsequently contaminated.
For many, the argument on the existence of ‘God’ is a smokescreen to cover up our inability to progressively create a society where the weak and vulnerable are protected.
I would respectfully suggest that Graham and Scobbie dismiss whether there is a God or not, but accept there is an inexplicable force for good or evil. The choice is ours alone regardless of ‘God’ or religion.
