Fairy Tales and Reason

by Melissa Burke

I get scared when I think about God. It doesn't seem logical that God exists. When I really think about it, God seems like a fairy tale, like a made-up story to give people comfort. I feel like REM, like I'm "losing my religion" and putting more faith in science and reason. I hope if God does exist, He won't get mad at me for thinking this way. How could He blame me?
