Why is it such a popular thing to ignore and/or deny God nowadays? Is it because of advancements in science? Hardly. Science cannot prove or disprove God.
In a world gone awry with whims and cravings; self-interest and surrender to various genetic tendencies, almost no one wants accountability. Even God’s righteous judgment has been judged to be politically incorrect.
To quote Shawn Boonstra: “Maybe the denial of God has noting to do with science at all, but with a desperate attempt to keep Him out of our lives.”
