Atheism vs. theism

I believe that our (human) capability to know is limited. So to say there is a God is denying this limitation, as if we are sure about something we really have no ideas. And to say there is NOT a God is also arrogant because we really have no evidences to prove there is NOT a God.
So both atheism and theism do not make sense to me. We are limited. We are trapped. We have no help. And WE DON'T KNOW.

And what is worse (or better) is that we cannot give up our reason --- the only tool we rely on to know things --- no matter where it leads us.

  1. How very true!! Not all who vouch for the path of reason admit that even that path isn't guaranteed to solve all the problems or let us know the truth; rather it can only be viewed as the best bet. I think it is important to be aware of our limitations while at the same time not giving into utter despair
