Does God Exist?

reflection

by Michael Maciel

Everyone has a god, whether they’re religious or not. If you take anthropomorphism out of the equation, your god is simply that which you hold in highest esteem. Maybe that’s intelligence or rationality. Maybe it’s money or wealth. Maybe it’s kindness and cooperation. Whatever it is, you have one—unless, of course, you’re a nihilist. But if that’s the case, who cares?
 
This question of God isn’t as complicated as most people make it out to be. It’s not hard to see intelligence at work in everything—from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest galaxies. It’s everywhere.
 
And consciousness? No one, and I mean no one, knows what consciousness is. Somehow, it is integral to physical reality—intertwined into the fabric of the universe—but no one knows what it actually is. Some people are better at using it than others, but even they cannot comprehend it in its fullness.
 
Maybe the question of God is the wrong question. Maybe it’s a question of YOU. Do you think YOU exist? That seems to me to be a far more pertinent question.
