Quote of the Day: "If There Were No God There Would Be No Atheists"

G.K. ChestertonImage by giveawayboy via Flickr
"If there were no God, there would be no atheists." -- G. K. Chesterton.

Of course, without God there would be no creation, and, therefore, being an atheist would not be an option.  But let's suppose there was a universe that was uncaused by a living, intelligent, purposeful, moral being. Would we expect it to look like our universe?

I think not.

We should not expect an uncreated universe to exhibit the order, laws, and exquisite indicators of design, rationality, and moral sense that our universe does.
