Atheism Compliments God Poem by Paul Hartal

Since God does not exist,
He could not create the world,
Said the atheist.

Then who created it?
The poet asked.

Well, the world just came into being
By itself, she replied.

Well, in that case
This is indeed a great compliment
For God, the poet said.

She gave him a surprised look.
And why is that? She asked.

Imagine that a book, for example,
Could write itself without the author,
Would not be it a fantastic miracle?

Yes, indeed, she agreed.

So, a self-creating universe,
The poet said, would even be
An immeasurably greater
And miraculous accomplishment,
The utmost manifestation
Of the Glory of God.

Therefore, paradoxically, atheism
Unwillingly but compliments God.

    The reason I despise this site sometimes is seeing Genius like yours radiate with infinite light, being a firm agnositic, I always the evidence for or against elusive and always boiling down to a philosophical dilemma with no fixed resolve, deism is a nice choice if you favor the enlightenment.
    This is brilliant stuff
