God Vs Myth

Posted by Troy on 20th November 2011 in Human Nature

An atheist has released a book about the miracles of science, discussing the religious “myths.”  According to him, religion is a great lie we have taken upon ourselves.  There is one major problem in this regards.  Why is it that every culture has a belief in the Divine?  I could understand one branch-off of humanity having a “delusion” as such, but the fact that we all seem to have a sense that there is a greater power at work and that this greater power prefers for us to love our brothers and do good says something to me.  As C.S. Lewis said, if you had perfect scientific knowledge, and you knew everything there was to know about the universe, do you still think we would have the question of “Why are we here?”
