- We can see that God creates children and entrusts them to humanity.
- We can see that God is not required to do this, but that she continues to do this.
- We can see the joy that children bring to us.
- We can then conclude that God must greatly love us in order to continue to entrust us with these children.
- We can see that she creates us to live, that, in her eyes, our lives have great value.
- We can then ask ourselves what is the best response we can make to her.
- We can see that the answer must be in the manner in which we treat each other and in the manner in which we raise her children.
- We can see therefore that it is in our best interest to build relationships of mutual trust with our fellow man.
If God does not exist, then this is the universe we see:
- We can see that each one of us has a choice: to live in solitude or to live in the community of man.
- We can see that we sometimes we need assistance to live, fo, when we are ill or injured or without food and shelter.
- We can see we have a basic choice, to fight or to get along.
- We can see that if we decide to fight, there will be just one of us left standing, in a mortally wounded state.
- We can see therefore that if we value life we should not fight.
- We can see therefore that life itself is a value against which moral systems can be built. and that it is in our best interest to build relationships of mutual trust with our fellow man.
We can begin to see those that betray trust are not necessarily evil, that instead they are lost, no longer able to see the logic of mutual trust. In some cases, they have become ill. In all cases, they are in need of interdiction, restraint, education, and healing.
We are all in need of rational education and freedom from enforced beliefs in ancient ideas of God that contradict the nature of the God we see if God exists at all.
