"Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind.

In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking.

It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call 'thought'.

But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true?

It's like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way way it splashes itself will give you a map of London.

But if I can't trust my own thinking, of course I can't trust the arguments leading to Atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an Atheist, or anything else.

Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God."


(No Reasoning to Atheism )
