I'm sceptical of atheism, even in light of probability. More importantly, I'm concerned atheism makes an assumption, much like religion, that god certainly does not exist.
Keep in mind that I maintain this view in light that I have only recently woken from the coma of Christian fantasy. Therefore with an open and curious mind I present my scepticism. This pesky mental obstacle of mine, or foundation depending on the truth of the matter, consists of the fact that anything exists at all. If one claims 'god made that', atheism raises its head and beckons 'life is improbable, yet then: God is even more so'. I find such arguments intellectually unsatisfying and incomplete. I find myself considering, yet only philosophically and no deeper, of god in the sense that Einstein, allegedly, considered god: a genius, or force of intelligence, that began the cosmos but has nothing do with human affairs. There seems to be a gap of evidence in either way, save the mere fact of existence and surely existence has a root? So I find myself chartering a boat to the waters of Deism, yet surely aware that I do not totally comprehend atheism–or for that fact the mysteries of the universe!
