Religion does not work for me, atheism does
I do not have a belief in a higher order. I do not believe in God or Jesus. Atheism works for me in general.
Science is my belief system. I believe in evolution and the Big Bang. These work for me greatly.
Atheism is practiced by certain people. They feel no need to believe in God. This is just the way it is for them.
I never liked going to church. Nothing really has changed for me because of religion. This is how I feel about this.
Religion has a certain meaning for people. This is not the case for me, and it has been this way for as long as I can remember.
There are others who are atheists. This is not a bad thing, but others believe in God. I believe whatever way works for people.
I like to believe in something I can see. I have never seen or spoken to God and never will. So why should I believe in God.
Believe in what you want to. It is up to you and that is how it should be. Religion should never be forced on a person.
Take care for now and be good. This is all one can ask for as COVID-19 continues as time passes. A cure in the works would be fantastic as time carries forward now and into the future.
