Two Quotations on Questioning Belief

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHere is a door, behind which, according to some people, the secret of the universe is waiting for you. Either that's true, or it isn't. And if it isn't, then what the door really conceals is simply the greatest fraud, the most colossal "sell" on record. Isn't it obviously the job of every man (that is a man and not a rabbit) to try to find out which, and then to devote his full energies either to serving this tremendous secret or to exposing and destroying this gigantic humbug?
~C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock, "Man or Rabbit?" (1946).

I was at this time living, like so many Atheists or Antitheists, in a whirl of contradictions. I maintained that God did not exist. I was also very angry with God for not existing. I was equally angry with Him for creating a world.
~C.S. Lewis, Surprised by Joy, chap. 7 (1955)

Isn't it though? Sounds like a few atheists I know.
