"g tri v a a s enginn Gvu"

Penn Jilette fjallar um tr sna

Margir gir punktar, mli me a i hlusti hann um lei og i lesi.

I believe that there is no God. I'm beyond Atheism. Atheism is not believing in God. Not believing in God is easy -- you can't prove a negative, so there's no work to do. You can't prove that there isn't an elephant inside the trunk of my car. You sure? How about now? Maybe he was just hiding before. Check again. Did I mention that my personal heartfelt definition of the word "elephant" includes mystery, order, goodness, love and a spare tire?

So, anyone with a love for truth outside of herself has to start with no belief in God and then look for evidence of God. She needs to search for some objective evidence of a supernatural power. All the people I write e-mails to often are still stuck at this searching stage. The Atheism part is easy.

Mtti benda mrgum trmnnum a a er til stig sem er ofar trleysi. g held reyndar a g s v stigi, g tri v lkt og Penn Jilette, a a s enginn gvu til, en a gildir ekki endilega um alla sem ekki tra gvu(i).

Believing there's no God stops me from being solipsistic. I can read ideas from all different people from all different cultures. Without God, we can agree on reality, and I can keep learning where I'm wrong. We can all keep adjusting, so we can really communicate. I don't travel in circles where people say, "I have faith, I believe this in my heart and nothing you can say or do can shake my faith." That's just a long-winded religious way to say, "shut up," or another two words that the FCC likes less.

Skemmtilegur pistill hj Jillette, og g tek undir me v sem hann segir. g hugsa a g persnulega falli nokkurn veginn undir a sem hann segir hr:

"All the people I write e-mails to often are still stuck at this searching stage. The Atheism part is easy."

g er enn a "leita," en a er ekki ar me sagt a g tri a a s eitthva arna ti sem s strra en vi sjlf. g er bara a segja a g tiloka ekki mguleikann. g tri einfaldlega ekki ann Gu sem trarbrg reyna a ota a okkur - eins og Jillette segir er Atheism auveldi hlutinn.

annig a maur veit ( sta ess a tra) a Gu er ekki til. kei, hva nst? Er samt eitthva arna ti, eitthva jafnvgi sem tengir okkur, ea erum vi bara slembilukka treiknanlegri tilveru? a veit g ekki, hvorki af n , og er v enn opinn fyrir llum mguleikum.

Hins vegar hef g enn ekkert s ea upplifa sem bendir til ess a a s eitthva sem tengir okkur saman, einhver hnnun heiminum (skortir betra or, er ekki a vsa Intelligent Design). Stundum egar g hlusta tnlist, stunda kynlf, upplifi adrenaln af einhverjum toga ea einhvers konar lkamlega umbreytingu af v tagi, lur mr eins og g s mgulega a ggjast inn einhvern strri heim, eitthva strra, en g er ekki viss. Me trleysi kemur a a tra engu, heldur skjast eftir svrum, og mean g veit ekki vissu mna tiloka g ekkert.

Annars, allt of langt svar hj mr ... en mr fannst pistillinn hj Jillette fnn. Hann orar margt mjg vel sem g oft erfitt me a tskra sjlfur mnu lfi, gagnvart flki sem vill skilja hvaan mnar skoanir koma.
