I know holy books are false, but as for a god it seems highly improbable. Imo the universe must have started out with a more simple process not some amazingly advanced being, if we are all descendants of some super advanced being why are we so inferior. The world doesnt seem designed at all, there is no evidence for that belief ive seen so far. Why would a highly advanced intelligence make such a badly designed world. I can think of a thousand things that I could do to make the world better if I had the power. I think the modern atheistic view is much more probable. Were getting more and more evidence to prove it is. Some people like to endulge in some fantasy fairy tale to help them cope with this harsh reality. Fine with me, as long as it doesnt hurt any one else(and lots of the time it does). Not as harsh as beign ruled by some evil dictator egomaniac god for all enternity imo . If some one tells me "do this it works" and it clearly doesnt Im not going to ignore them I will tell them the truth. I cant get back into religion even if it may give me some comfort, because I know its just a false hope.
