Human beings would frequently behave like territorial primates;
Nature would be the result of a mindless and heartless process;
Sex and death would be the drivers of its development;
Life would be a cruel struggle for most living creatures, including many humans;
Disease and illness would be pervasive, except where humans themselves had eliminated them;
The world would be largely indifferent to human aspiration;
The brain would find pattern and impose order where none existed;
Progress would be due entirely to human endeavour;
People would adopt the beliefs of their culture and be entirely convinced they alone were right.
Hang on a minute! Isn’t this the world we already have? It’s just like Julia Sweeney says: ‘The world behaves exactly as you expect it would if there were no Supreme Being, no Supreme Consciousness, and no supernatural’. A world without God is exactly the world we’ve got. And the world we’ve got is evidentially a world without a God.
Surely that’s no bad thing.
