Richard Dawkins is in the news again. A NY Times article has him preaching his gospel of atheism among other things. When he releases a new book he gets a lot of press. And his message is simple, God doesn’t exist.
I think the reason for his success is that atheism is on the rise. I can’t guess why denying God is so popular. I wish I had a proof for all of these questioners that God exists. Unfortunately, I think that trying to prove such a thing with logical arguments is doomed to failure.
All I can say to a person like Mr. Dawkins is that I know that I am not alone. I experience the actual presence of God within me. I know that God speaks to me. I know that God loves me. I can’t prove it. I just know it. I feel bad for people who don’t experience the presence of God the way I do. They walk this earth in isolation, while the people of faith are never alone.
Please pray for Mr. Dawkins and all those who do not yet realize that God is close by.
