FRANK Schaeffer is a writer. His latest book is “Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace”
He wrote this on the CNN blog:
“I am an atheist who believes in God.
“…I believe that life evolved by natural selection. I believe that evolutionary psychology explains away altruism and debunks love, and that brain chemistry undermines the illusion of free will and personhood.
“I also believe that a spiritual reality hovering over, in and through me calls me to love, trust and hear the voice of my creator.“
“…Many of us, even the devout, have many more questions than answers about God and religion.
“In other words, people just like me: atheists who pray and eloquent preachers who secretly harbor doubts.
“….Many Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Christians inherited their faith because of where they were born. If you are an atheist, you hold those beliefs because of a book or two you read, or who your parents were and the century in which you were born.
“Don’t delude yourself: There are no ultimate reasons for anything, just circumstances.”
