Atheist and Believer

In a mother's womb were two babies A and B. They were communicating with each other.

A: "Do you believe in life after delivery?"
B: "Why? Of course I do. There has to be something after delivery.  May be we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later."
A: "Nonsense, there is no life after delivery. What would that life be?"
B: "I don't know, but there will be more light than here. May be we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths."
A: "This is absurd! Walking is impossible. And eat with our mouths? Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. Life after delivery is excluded. The umbilical cord is too short."
B: "I think there is something and may be it's different than it is here."
A: "No one has ever come back from there. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery it is nothing but darkness and anxiety and it takes us nowhere."
B: "Well, I don't know, but certainly we will see mother and she will take care of us."
A: "Mother?Do you believe there is a mother? Where is she now?"
B: "She is all around us. It is in her that we live. Without her this world would be no more."
A: "I don't see her, so it's logical that she doesn't exist."
B: "Sometimes when you're in silence you can hear her, you can perceive her. I believe there is a reality after delivery and we are here to prepare ourselves for that reality."

  1. Fantastically imaginative, thought-provoking, and humourous. You're a credit to the religious among us. However, the mother walks, sits, stands, coughs, sneezes, eats, throws up, and what not. She provides plenty of evidence that there is an outside and strange bumps and booms emanate from there. Where is that evidence in the universe? If you argue that God IS universe, then there is no outside and the womb analogy falls apart. Great effort, but logically flawed.
