I am an atheist.
I do no believe in god. I find no comfort in organized religion.
I, however, completely respect anybodys right to believe in God, Buddha, Allah, or whatever/whomever you choose to pray to... Everybody has a different path in life, and everyone gets comfort, advice, support or love from different sources. We don't all have to believe in the same thing.
I have my family and my friends. My parents raised me to stand up for myself, work hard and always do what I feel is right....
I'm also a big fan of Jiminy Cricket... Always let your conscience be your guide. :) That conscience doesn't always have to be led by God.
