So what brings this up? I was reading over at John C. Wright's blog, and came across this paragraph:
(I note in passing that back when I was an atheist, neither did my fellow atheists and I ask for help from strangers when we suffered, nor did we volunteer to help, nor was their any help to give. Atheism is a cold universe, and there is only cold comfort there. Even if God should turn out to be a dream and a delusion, sharing even an imaginary warmth is an act of love and goodfellowship is better than the real coldheartedness godlessness produces.)I think that I would enjoy being around Mr. Wright very much, if only for the education I would receive in the proper use of the English language.
More than that through is the cold hard truth encompassed by that statement up above. Even if God were a dream instead of a reality, I would much prefer to live with that dream than live in a world where nobody even cares about God. I've seen those worlds, by the way, and they're not pleasant or pretty places.
