Aaron Rodgers ‘I Don’t Know How You Can Believe in a God’
 

 



In an intimate conversation with girlfriend Danica Patrick, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is discussing his Christian upbringing and how he first began to question his faith.
In a video posted to Patrick’s YouTube page for her Pretty Intense podcast in late December, Rodgers — who was raised as a Christian from a young age — said he had trouble connecting with his religious community as a child.
“Most people that I knew, church was just … you just had to go,” the Super Bowl XLV champion recalled.

It was his time with the youth group, Young Life, that he felt the most sense of community — which he said he didn’t get during typical Sunday mass.
“We went to Mexico during two spring breaks and built houses,” he said of volunteering with the program. “We put together homes for these folks who were living in garage door sides thrown together and stuff, that was meaningful. That was really meaningful work.”
But it wasn’t until Rodgers was exposed to other religions as a young adult that he began to question his own.
“I just didn’t find any connection points with those things,” said Rodgers, who played football at the University of California, Berkeley. “I started questioning things, and had friends who had other beliefs — I enjoyed learning, that’s kind of a part of my life.”

“I had some good friendships along the way that helped me to figure out exactly what I wanted to believe in,” the 36-year-old said in the video. “Ultimately, it was that rules and regulations and binary systems don’t really resonate with me.”
The realization led Rodgers down a path to a “different type of spirituality,” one that is more meaningful to him than what he experienced as a child.

Rodgers also said the growing threat of climate change made it hard for him to accept Christianity.
“I don’t know how you can believe in a God who wants to condemn most of the planet to a fiery hell,” he said. “What type of loving, sensitive, omnipresent, omnipotent being wants to condemn his beautiful creation to a fiery hell at the end of all this?”

Though Rodgers did not specifically refer to himself as an atheist — someone who does not believe in the existence of God or gods — his statements seem to echo those of a growing contingent of people in the United States. According to Pew Research, the number of Americans who identify with being an atheist has increased over the last decade (from 2 percent to 4 percent).

For the two-time NFL MVP, it was the “us against them” attitude he observed that ultimately changed his views on organized religion.
“Religion can be a crutch, it can be something that people have to have to make themselves feel better,” Rodgers continued. “Because it’s set up binary, it’s us and them, saved and unsaved, heaven and hell, it’s enlightened and heathen, it’s holy and righteous … that makes a lot of people feel better about themselves.”

It's easy for me.

I view God as more of an 'Intelligent Designer' more so than a 'Benevolent, Father Figure'.

Most people who don't believe in God cannot come up with a rational explanation as to how the world began

They claim Nothing (The absence of everything) created this intricate complex planet with all the nature and humans and all of the order of the universe without ANY intelligent design behind it and it came to be through random selection and evolution.

You ever saw colorful ink draw its own pictures in a perfect way on a piece of paper and black ink fall from the sky to form perfect coherent sentences on those pages and bind itself into a 500 page book by itself? Any human person would say that is impossible because it there was an intelligence behind the creation and fabrication of that book and its contents.

But this world that is far more complex, complex to the point that the intelligence behind every part of this world down to its smallest molecule and DNA that is incomprehensible to any human was somehow created by an explosion out of nothing, right atheists?

Show me an explosion that did not cause destruction but created order and created a universe with sentient beings and I will become an atheist

Yeah that's the dumbest sh*t I ever heard.... n*ggas literally claimed the universe the created itself. So I'd always say if I sat an empty jar somewhere long enough it'll start to create it's own universe
