Atheist v/s Theist


A friend recently shared these quotes with me. Made a lot of sense.

“An Atheist who refuses to enter a temple because he doesn’t believe in God actually does so because he believes there is God inside Temple.”

“A Theist who prays to God, actually has no faith in God because he prays for God to do things his way, instead of trusting God’s wisdom and not praying at all.”

    By the way, anyone who wants to think about God's existence or lack of it must read Bhagat Singh's Why I am an atheist
