Dear Mr. Dawkins,
I am no journalist nor scientist, I am merely an intelligent human being and devout Atheist that is interesting in starting my first pro-atheist blog site entitled ReligiPoliMusic. My first submission will be an article on intellectual evolution and I was hoping you could share insight on the topic that could help me shape the readers opinion. Im a firm believer in evolution and the fact that we are still evolving as a species not just physically but spiritually. Here’s my theory….
Mankind used religion to explain away the world, during a time scientific thought wasn’t around. Indians believed in fire gods, gods of war etc… Greeks believed in an ungodly amount of gods, so on and so on. Then all of a sudden we realised only one god was needed to explain it all rather than 1 god per situation. I think the next logical step in our intellectual evolution is to accept the likelyhood of no god at all.
Of course the actual article will be in depth, that’s the gist of the point I’m getting at. Please let me know what you think and maybe add a little ammo to my arsenal. Thanks for your time.
