I found out today that being an atheist is natural ...............WOW!What do you think?

Today,we had to meet with an advisor.We were discussing our beliefs.He was driving home to me what he believes and comparing to what I believe.He made a statelment that was very eye opening.He said:

To be an atheist is natural.It is natural to question,it is natural to doubt.It is natural to not believe.

Agnostics are natural too.

I have just never thought about it that way.All beliefs are either natural or evironmental.

He also said we have no right to talk about people who are living together and not married.Marriage is not natural.It is manmade.

I just thought it was profound being that we are Christian.We are also naturalists and believe in all things that are natural and it goes much deeper than I ever knew.

So what do you think?Is atheism natural?

  • I think we are born atheists. We have no concept of god or any divine power. Until my grandmother took me to her church when I was 6, I knew only nature.

  • That is what he said.We have to be introduced to religion.I was kind of amazed at his wisdom.............he also pointed out that why we get accused of "being in the flesh" because we are doing what is natural.

  • The only thing that stops that is man's law which we are bound too just like we cannot have sex on the side of the road .Illegal and immoral are two TOTALLY different things.It would not be immoral to crap where you stand but it would be illegal.

  • No I do not believe that at all.
    It is human/demonic to be an athiest or agnostic.. Its the fallen state of man. It is Godly to have faith.
    It is natural to want to worship and God created us to worship HIM. Its not natural to worship anything else or not at all.
    No one is born an atheist, it is a choice that is chosen by the heart of man/woman. It is called unbelief.

  • Are you kidding me?If you put a newborn child in the jungle alone and you came back 20 year later(if he survives),I doubt very seriously he will start sing hymns.These are just the facts,like it or not.
