Belief or unbelief – it’s an act of faith

I never cease to be amazed by the arrogance of those who contemptuously dismiss people who believe in God as being intellectually deficient in comparison with their superior intelligence. Whichever way you look at the origin of all that exists you are left with one of two choices: either you accept that there’s an intelligence infinitely greater than our miniscule understanding of all that is, or you accept that once there was absolutely nothing, and nothing happened to the nothing until the nothing suddenly exploded, for no reason, creating everything and everywhere. Then a bunch of the exploding everything somehow rearranged itself, for no reason whatsoever, into self-replicating bits, which then turned into us and everything else.
Either way, believing it is an act of faith
