Contrary to popular belief, I am not an atheist.In the real sense, I am a deist. I believe there is a creator but he/she/it is not interested in our affairs. He/she/it is distant and remote. With all the sorrow and misery I see in the world, it’s pointless deifying this deity. What artiste loves to see his/her work destroyed?
I believe that there are forces of good because I know there are forces of evil.
I believe all these didn’t things didn’t come into existence like that. How does something come from nothing.
There is a creator. But, who created the Creator?
I believe every creation is a manifestation of this creator.
Then again, everyone of us create different things. We are all creators… do we deify ourselves? (Oops… “Ye are gods”)
Ostensibly, I don’t buy into the concept of religion.
Religion and god are two separate concepts.
Religion is the construct of people within a geographical region in a bid to understand the things they can’t explain.
This explains why different societies have different religions.
Atheism is the disbelief in the existence of gods. (I believe in a creator. I don’t think atheists believe in a creator).
Basically, I can say I’m a deist; not an atheist.
