Hi Christin S, that is very true you can teach yourself lot of things if you can read them, I have done that myself. But what I am wondering about here is, are you now an atheist or do you believe in other religions?
I consider myself an agnostic atheist. I keep an open mind, but I do not believe there is a deity as is taught in most religions.
I do miss the fellowship of the church. The Unity Church has tenets that are very spiritual, not religious, and I used to attend, but like man's church, they couldn't get along and split. I got tired of their squabbling and left. No church for me.
CJ, my parents were married for 43 years until my father died. They had their ups and downs like any marriage, but in our house the atheist and the theist existed in harmony.
Miz--I was an Atheist, my wife a Catholic when were married 50 years ago. We were married in a Catholic church. My love for her was greater than for my Atheism. A different situation entirely.
Yes, when two people love each other, they can work out the little details like atheism and theism like my parents -- and you and your wife did. Ain't it wonderful!
It's pretty simple to live your life with people of different beliefs. It's incredibly pessimistic to say theists and atheists cannot exist in harmony with each other. Borderline ignorant since plenty already do.
My grandparents were also married for many years. My grandfather a devout atheist, my grandmother a former nun and devout Catholic. They had a lasting relationship so it's interesting to see others with similar backgrounds :).
Those Atheist men are just rascals.
