A View Of The Demand For Proof









Check out more thought provoking and laugh out loud funny strips by Wiley Miller by visiting the "Non Sequitur" website. Click on the strips to link to his website.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you know that I am atheist. What you may not know is that I have a "live and let live" approach to religion. I don't try to convert those who believe in God and practice the religion of his/her choice over to my point of view. A wise man once said that everyone has to serve somebody.

Others, however, don't share that belief. Check out this video when you have about 4-5 minutes of free time to learn about a man who's taking the Catholic Church to court demanding proof of the existence of Jesus Christ.

For lack of a better phrase, bless him for trying to advance the cause. Still, I can't help but wonder what point will come of it if his suit goes forward? Even if a ruling lands in his favor and irrefutable proof can't be found, we all know people will continue to believe what they believe. (There are tons of people out there that believe George Dubya is the greatest president to ever hold the office in spite of all the evidence to the contrary, after all.) What's the harm in letting people believe in what they believe and letting them live with their choice?

Anyway, it should be interesting to see how this comes out. Stay tuned for updates.

More to come later.
