    Thanks Aime, your views and the life style as you said is no different than a theist, but you say you are atheist, I think you need to contemplate how good morals have become an obstinate part of your personality? What’s that driving force call?

    Thanks manatita, if someone is good at heart means by nature he is inclined towards a Divine force. If someone is able to make out the happenings to be good or bad, than why can't he be an ambassador of virtues with a faith in God?

    True dashingscorpio...I think difference between blind belief and, faith, has to be made clear. Even in our relationship and worldly affairs there are loads of things that we believe to be true, doesn't ask for any logic for there certification.

    Thanks getrite, I wonder how come a person realises the "stuff to be ancient foolish ritualistic nonsense" so precisely but fail to know what actually the truth is? And how to be wise enough to resort to realistic form of religious practices?

    Many people also just don't care. Live the world as it comes, make money and watch netflix, buy cars,... Which is for me the same as a person who goes to church because it always was like that, but never questions or reads different views...

    Lois, you mean to say the familial background plays an important role for a person to be theist or atheist, right? There are chances that he may become even a polytheist as it can be easily perceived if the family members happens to be polytheists?

    Logical and rational? Are we really supposed to understand God from our perspective? Far too much coincidence for me personally. I am as much of a realist as you will ever find. Too much evidence for God for me to ignore that. Plus, lived it.
