Words of Comfort: Without Question


“You’re just not going to get the right answer, your whole world is just going to be a mystery instead of an exciting place,” claims the actor-scientist who never reached the status of professor. “As my old professor, Carl Sagan, said, ‘when you’re in love, you want to tell the world.’”

Neither was Carl Sagan an atheist. Atheists claim that he was one of theirs, but he wasn’t.

Mr. Nyes talks about having the “right answer,” but I would bet my right pinky that when he is pressed about what was “in the beginning,” he would say, “I don’t know.” Then he would add, “We don’t know (speaking on behalf of the entire human race) but we will one day.” Ask him what is the purpose of human existence, and he will say, “We don’t know.” Ask him what happens after death, and he will say, “We don’t know.” I have spoken to hundreds of evolution believers and atheists, and they are all the same. They don’t know. They just believe, without question.
