this i believe

Although I have not made up my mind on religion/god(s) and such stuff, I do find it interesting to see what others think. Google came up with the following article:

Without God, we can agree on reality, and I can keep learning where I’m wrong. We can all keep adjusting, so we can really communicate. I don’t travel in circles where people say, “I have faith, I believe this in my heart and nothing you can say or do can shake my faith.” That’s just a long-winded religious way to say, “shut up” […]

Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have.

From NPR. Click here to read full article.

Any kind of non-belief in a god is often viewed as a rebellious stance to take (funnily enough, similar to the way an over-zealous belief in religion is viewed).

I find it refreshing that the writer has taken such a positive outlook to life without religious faith.

As for me, maybe Google is my all-knowing god. :P
