We are in good company

I got a link to the list of the 50 most brilliant atheists of all time. I recommend to read the list, it is a fascinating read. And interesting to know that we share our non belief with such distinguished people like
  • Stephen Hawkins
  • Steve Wozniak
  • Warren Buffet
  • Katherine Hepburn
  • Jodie Foster
  • PZ Myers
  • Richard Dawkins
  • Richard Leaky
  • Sigmund Freud
  • ... and 41 others

Years ago, I used to think that if almost everyone believed in God, God's existence must be real. Now that I know better I realize that this line of thought is an argument "ad populom" or, in other words, a generalization.

Truth is not a popularity contest but the concordance between our judgement and the facts; actually, as we all know, truth can be very painful and unconfortable...

I am a believer, call it (as I have), last resource when everything else fails... but I always go back to God who is always happy to have me back. Truly there is no place like home (Toto).

I do love your passion for your non-belief and I am interested in your train of thought! Have a nice week.
