God Shaped Vacuum?

February 19, 2009

One of the things I used to hear time and time again at church is that the human heart has a God-shaped vacuum. Okay. I understand what Christians mean when they say this, which is basically that their argument is humans were created for worship and all that stuff, right? Well, what’s the evidence for this?

We can look around and see that, yes, people that don’t worship God worship all sorts of other things: money, power, prestige, fame, etc. etc. But what does that mean? What kind of argument is that? After all, people who worship God also worship all sorts of other things, for example church status.

In reality, that people tend to consume themselves with some object of devotion is no argument for Christianity. Now that I’m not religious, I don’t feel a God-shaped vacuum. I actually just feel like, well… I just feel like I’m not religious anymore, and breathing a bit easier.
