“We must question the story logic … ” Gene Roddenberry

I won’t disagree with you. Religious people and atheists, are often the same, they just believe different things, though atheists portray themselves as seekers of knowledge. They still make the same faults in logic. It’s the same humans with the same fallibilities for the most part.

However, the fact remains, that those that are indeed seekers of knowledge, and that *are* reasonable, and that *are* logical, must inevitably be atheists.

This quote is a question. It is a good quote. We should question all things such as these. If you are reasonable, then you must agree. However, stating that we should question it, is not to say that there is not a good reasonable solution. This quote makes many atheists immediately arrive at the conclusion that this question shows that what it describes, that we should question, is evidence that there is no God, even though it is not conclusive.

The reality though, is that if there is a God, then this seemingly contradictory state of events, is in fact not necessarily contradictory at all.

If there is a God, and he created man in his image, and he wishes for man to be good, then man must be capable of evil. A fly is neither good nor evil, it just is.

Humans are capable of knowing, and predicting outcomes, and recognizing the effects of actions etc. This means we are capable of good or evil. God cannot really have made humans that are inherently good, because then humans would not be good. They would just be, as a fly is. That is not entirely true, and I will explain later.

“The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance.” -Socrates. The more we know, the more we can predict outcomes of actions, and the better equipped we become at defining what is good or what is bad. So then, the more that we know, that we truly know, not just believe, or think, the more good we become. It could very well be that we are in a state of production. Growing to become good as we learn. Growing to become as the image of God, he is creating us to be. The only way God could have made us truly good, from the beginning, created us inherently good instantaneously, without taking away our freedom of choice, and while keeping our ability to do evil, an ability that is required for good, would have been if he would have made us all knowing to begin with. Then we could have known what good is, and seen properly how to be good, and made that choice, rather than to choose to do evil. That would be possible. But perhaps there is some sort of reasoning why he would not, and perhaps we are in a state of construction, as we learn to become good, as we learn what good is.

So, this quote does not show a contradiction in the story. But it is a question, which is good. Which is how we learn. So it is within the spirit of knowledge. It is not propaganda as such. It is a question. There is no answer there. The error, is to not truly wonder the question, and just assume an answer.

Knowledge, if you believe in God, brings you closer to being good, and learning the true message of God. The true message, untainted by human flaw, by humans that would exploit, by human error. There are many religions that spawned from the same script, which may already contain many misinterpretations and mistakes humans have made, deliberately or not. At best, only one of these philosophies can truly be correct. You cannot trust humans. At best every single interpretation is false to some degree, save one. Only true logic and reasoning can avoid misrepresentation, either willfully, or by accident of humans.

So, whether or not you believe in God, all questions, questions such as this, are good. And all assumptions, such as the assumed answer to this question, that many will see, are bad.

Most people are close-minded, regardless of religious affiliation, or lack thereof. The only protection against that, is questioning, reasoning, logic, and being weary of assumptions you may have made.

You don’t have to believe in God, or in a set of teachings of God. God is all knowing, and all good. If you follow logic and reasoning, and questioning, you come closer to being all knowing, and it will inevitably result to being at the very least a close approximation, of the good that an all knowing being is capable of. If humanity lasts long enough.

Belief however, leaves you defenseless against the fallibilities of man. The misinterpretations, and the errors. The willful exploitation of some as well. Faith and belief keeps the faithful and believers away from learning the true message of God. For all, atheists and religious alike, the best philosophy is knowledge, questions, reasoning, and logic.

**TL;DR**

You’re right. But this is a question. Knowledge and questions are the only way for humankind to become good. Whether they believe in God or not. Faith and belief keeps the faithful and the believers, from truly knowing God. This question is good. There is an assumed answer however, and that assumed answer is bad. It is also not necessarily the correct answer. This question does not necessarily uncover a contradiction at all.
