As you may have guessed from reading all this, I’m not naturally the kind of person who can just be content to let something sit that has been such an important part of my life.
Non religion worked for a while but eventually I kept questioning, reading, learning, growing.
By the time I had been non-religious for a year or so, I could safely say I was an atheist.
By atheist I mean that I am a-theistic toward every proclaimed God known world of humans today. This would include Hindu gods, Allah, and of course the God of the Bible. I do not see evidence to convince me that any of these are real.
There could be a greater being out there. After all, how did we all get here? Was energy eternally in existence? where did it come from? Who created the big bang? These questions are no different from the questions left by Christianity of course. If you think about it: who created God? Oh he existed forever? Well I could say the same of energy. It always was and always will be. So we are at the same point.
The difference is I am alright with saying “I just don’t know”. I don’t. But just because I don’t know doesn’t mean that I will jump to the conclusion “therefore God”. I’m ok not knowing. And if one day we figure it out than great. If not in my lifetime. That’s ok. Just because there is an ancient book written 2000 years ago by sheep herders and fishermen that claims to know the answer, doesn’t mean I need to accept it without proper proof. that proof doesn’t exist in my opinion.
