The God Within.
Atheism is a difficult concept for most people that is why you find that only few of us are atheists. It reasons with you against the evident fact that there is an intelligent design for the creation. Since the creation is not random and it can not be found from nonexistence there should be an intelligence behind it. There is a simple law of parallel intelligence that I found "if you used your intelligence you admittedly using it against another intelligence. The more of knowledge and intelligence you use the more sophisticated the other intelligence".Agnostics are more pragmatic they agree with most of us of the existence of this intelligence or supreme being behind the creation. But they do not believe in organized religion and they do not think that God contacted man as alleged in religions particularly the three major ones. For most believers they found it difficult that God will create man and the whole universe without declaring that he is the creator. For most people regardless of their religion they feel the God within particularly when they feel close to death or have bad sickness.There is a strong desire in us almost as genuine as our genes that call us for the God within. In good time we have the desire to thank him and in bad time we have the urge to plead to him. When we do something wrong we feel that he is watching us and he would not like what we did.This God who created us and the universe and we are going back to him after we die we ought to be sure who is he. We have to look for him and we have to identify him. There are hundreds of religions out there the three major religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam have to be the first to be considered since all have a chain in prophets and came with same commandments and the father of the three religions Abraham (PBUH) was the same prophet that God has contacted.Islam ought to be the first to study since is the last of the three messages and the best preserved. Statistically most of us know mentally and spiritually that there is a God within and ought to find him. Quran will not only identify him you will listen to his speech, find his attributes and follow his guidance.Quran2:186 AND IF My servants ask thee about Me - behold, I am near; I respond to the call of him who calls, whenever he calls unto Me: let them, then, respond unto Me, and believe in Me, so that they might follow the right way.وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ (2:186)
