C.S. Lewis, Reflecting on Nagging Doubts

“Just as the Christian has his moments when the clamour of this visible and audible world is so persistent and the whisper of the spiritual world so faint that faith and reason can hardly stick to their guns, so, as I well remember, the atheist too has his moments of shuddering misgiving, of an all but irresistable suspicion that old tales may after all be true, that something or someone from outside may at any moment break into his neat, explicable, mechanical universe. Believe in God and you will have to face hours when it seems obvious that this material world is the only reality: disbelieve in Him and you must face hours when this material world seems to shout at you that it is not all.”

Religion: Reality or Substitute by C.S. Lewis
Christian Reflections, p. 41


  1. Atheism is just another belief system only it believes that something doesn't exist as oppose to believing IN something. That's why, despite their rejection of objective moral values, they still embrace objective moral values.

  2. Haha! I like the way you put that Dan. But, I have too say, its hard to read your post with a straight face with an avatar like that. :)
