ALL MY LIFE, I’ve been skeptical about the existence of a supreme being. I was raised an atheist, but drifted toward agnosticism quite some time ago.
I dabbled in studying a bit of religion while in university and it convinced me I just don’t have the wherewithal, nor the blind faith, to get it. (Believe it or not, I still have the textbooks, two volumes of “Christendom, A Short History of Christianity and its Impact on Western Civilization.”)
But in the past couple of weeks, I’ve become convinced there must be a God, or some higher level of intelligence or, at least, a higher level of control. A supreme CEO, perhaps.
