Good vs Good It's just like it sounds. I'm outside of my belief-bubble. The question is, do I want to go back in? Can I go back? Does belief have a limit? Curiosity certainly tests our limits. Belief...is scrutiny; it's an egg shell. Don't live in a shell if you're afraid of the dark. Belief is an eggshell. Do you see the majesty? Intelligence is a curious field of study. The burden of proof (that God exists) belongs to yourcuriosity. Doubt (in its own right) is a god we reject (through curiosity). Boredom, idiocracy, and death. Boredom does not distract us from time. Idiocracy distracts us from death. Death makes us curious to know why doubt prefers we “settle” for our beliefs; the type of curiosity that begs for a new type of distraction (from doubt). What’s good at distraction? Idiocracy is a distraction from doubt (especially to the people complaining about it). Then there’s boredom. The type of boredom that treats your life like an enigmatic riddle interrupting your afternoon snooze. When I lose faith in my distraction’s ability to nullify time, I get curious.
To an atheist, there’s no burden (of proof) on them, so long as doubt doesn’t inspire their curiosity. Why should it? Does this explain why doubt is the true God? Doubt (in this context) is certain and that’s comforting. As long as you valuecertainty there is no burden of proof (for you) to explore why God doesn’t make you curious. You know why God doesn’t make you curious? Your doubt is certain. Why? Doubt conjures the certainty that curiosity rejects; the curiosity that helps us lose faith in our distractions’ ability to nullify time. That is why doubt must be certain for atheists to value it. Ironically curiosity is a positive because it forces us to address why we need distractions to function. Doubt is the ultimate distraction. The burden of proof (that God exists) belongs to our curiosity.
