Colin McEnroe Show: Atheism, Agnosticism And The Quest For Meaning
In Love and Death, Woody Allen's character Boris says: ... if it turns out that there IS a God, I don't think that He's evil. I think that the worst you can say about Him is that basically He's an underachiever.
Apostasy to some, but to others, this is the heart of the question. How can we reconcile almost any notion of God with the cruelties of Nature with famine and pestilence, with slavery and the holocaust?
This is not a question that has just one answer.
What does it mean to find no comfort in religion, and how many people in this nation are noisily or quietly on the path of atheism? How many others are nestled deep in a long term agnosticism?
Today on the show, you'll meet both kinds. Atheists are, in 2010, barking a bit louder than they have in the past, urging others to flock to their standard. Agnostics?..Well, how can they even form a club?
