Man Cannot Live By Reason Alone

A short, but thought provoking quote here – worth a quick read.

God does not believe in atheists


Even the wisest of mankind cannot live by reason alone; pure arrogant reason, denying the claims of prejudice (which commonly are also the claims of conscience), leads to a wasteland of withered hopes and crying loneliness, empty of God and man: the wilderness in which Satan tempted Christ was not more dreadful than the arid expanse of intellectual vanity deprived of tradition and intuition, where modern man is tempted by his own pride.

―Russell Kirk,
The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Eliot

  1. I know what you are saying (and I agree). I look at it a little differently, you probably will not agree but I think that God does believe in atheists. He believes that they will come to him, He believes that they search for him everyday whether they realize it or not, He knows that man’s heart and soul needs God’s presence and he believes that atheists will inevitably reach towards him and feel his presence. Yes, I think God believes in atheists like my parents believed I could be an attorney. The only problem with all of this hypothetical musing for me is that I do not believe that there is actually any such thing as a true atheist. I really like this post!!
