"Commenting on Richard Dawkin's book The God Delusion, which strikes many of the same notes as Harris's books, fellow atheist Michael Ruse, professor of philosophy at Florida State University, says, "The God Delusion makes me embarrassed to be an atheist." And in response to Sam Harris's presentation at the Salk Institute, atheist and professor of psychology Scott Atran used almost identical words: "I find it fascinating that among the brilliant scientists and philosophers at the conference, there was no convincing evidence presented that they know how to deal with the basic irrationality of human life other than to insist against all reason and evidence that things ought to be rational and evidence based. It makes me embarassed to be a scientist and atheist."
(Ravi Zacharias, The End of Reason: A Response to the New Atheists [USA: Zondervan, 2008], p.23)
"...atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be a word without meaning."What convinces me to believe in the existent of God?
(C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)
It seems that it makes more sense that creatures like us not merely able to conceptualize rationally and meaningfully about the world but also strive to do so unceasingly. I am not even here touching on objective/subjective debate, but pointing to the mere fundamental humans' outlook to life.
If our existence is reducible to matter and nothing other than matter (as atheists suggest), then it is just improbable that we could even come to make sense of our existence, not to mention our dying to want to make sense about it. There is a divine reason why scientists and philosophers are trying so hard for so long to discover the Theory of Everything.
