Is God real?
Whether you’re hopeful, a hardline skeptic, or somewhere inbetween, you’re in good company.
Is God real? Let’s start with a different question: is it crazy to believe in God?
For most of history, belief in a god was a given. We argued and fought wars over which god, but the default assumption is that there was at least one out there—almost as if we were hardwired for faith of some kind.
In the modern age, a common belief seems to be that science and God are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and that you have to choose one or the other. We look back at history and say “well, people only believed in God because they didn’t know any better.”
And yet, the fact that you’re reading this means that there is still something inside of you, inside of all of us, that wants to believe in something more than we can see. It’s a cosmic longing that can’t be explained, yet literally every person in human history has felt it. Are we all wrong?
We don’t think believing in God means checking your brain at the door and yelling about dinosaurs.
At the same time, there are some supernatural things about ourselves and our world that all seem to point to the existence of something more.
No, you’re not crazy, and we’re glad you’re asking questions.
