Yeah, well when I was a Christian I Was a pretty big part of the church. But now that I am an atheist I'm not sure what to do with myself. I miss feeling like I was a part of a community. I mean I'm not going to go back to being ignorant because of that, I guess I'm just looking for a community to be a part of. Do you get what I'm saying?
Thank you so much. I look forward to coming here to get my shot of sanity for the day. Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy, but it seems as if as the years tick by I am becoming less and less tolerant of ignorance. Maybe ignorance is too harsh. I am trying to figure out why ANYONE would voluntarily put themselves in a position of "mental slavery" to something that is not real. Or anything, real or not real for that matter. I have spent decades researching world religions (and Christianity more in depth) so I feel I have paid the topic it's due respect. I have looked at it from every angle I can possibly imagine (including the metaphysical) and I am STILL coming up empty with answers at the age of 43. Thanks again, I look forward to learning from people of like mind.
