If there were no God, there would be no Atheists.
- G. K. Chesterton
The above quote was on my igoogle page for the Quotes of the Day application. It made me stop and think. I don't know who G. K. Chesterton is and I should probably to take a look. Here's my thought: If there had been no belief of any god from the beginning there would be no one to have the opposite belief. But any time there is belief in something there will be someone who believes the opposite. It's like the concept of light an dark or good and evil- one does not exist without the other. So in that case that would mean that if the glorious time came when everyone stopped their belief in gods and embraced the truth there would be no atheists anymore. There would be no need of them because everyone would be the same and religion or silly beliefs wouldn't mean anything anymore. There would be no belief to hold onto, only the truth and what can be proven. I don't think we atheists will be out of a job any time soon but the thought is nice.
