Have any of the atheists reading this experienced things which you
could not understand and which science is at a loss to explain? If so,
how do you reconcile this with atheism?
- I think maybe the only thing I can't explain is dreams. I've had some pretty weird ones. :) (Chris Peterson #1075)
- No. Never.

Don't need to, since it doesn't happen. (J. Gregory Wharton #1162)
- Of course. There probably always will be unanswered questions. Atheism does not claim to have all the answers. It simply rejects the god hypothesis as a candidate. (George Ricker #146)
- Most of the stuff I experienced which I was at a loss to explain were the direct result of massive quantities of alcohol and or pharmaceuticals ;P Seriously, I tend to not dwell much on things I can't (or don't choose to) understand (calculus comes to mind... ;) I certainly don't look at unexplained phenomena as "miraculous" or the work of some supreme being.
(Dan Chaney #1144)
- Yes, several, in fact. I assumed that I didn't have all the data or was mistaken in my subjective impression. I saw no need to
reconcile an experience which I did not fully understand with my lack of belief in a deity. To me, there was no conflict. I make no claims for omniscience, nor do I feel a need to make up an answer where there is none. I don't know is a valid answer. (Liz Huth #658)
- When early man couldn't explain the sun, he worshipped it, just as other early people worshipped the wind, lightning, stars, and moon. I prefer not to attribute divinity on something just because it can't be explained. When I run into some thing or concept that I can't fathom, I merely shrug it off and figure that someday we'll know about it.
"Godidit" is so stupid that it's revolting. (Bob Haynes #8)
