I once believed in God. I was a child.
In college, I pursued science. I became an atheist. I got in numerous arguments with my father (whose “religion” was tenuous at best). Unwavering, I was still an atheist.
I met many people after that who believed in God, were my friends, and who I loved. So, I made some concessions where necessary. I became an agnostic.
Even as an agnostic, I once said:
A person’s piety is directly related to their need for external validation.
I still think that’s true. I finally realized, however, that agnosticism is just me being a pussy.
If you believe in God, then good for you; I hope He makes your life better. I do not believe in any God. You’re not allowed to question my lack of faith, as I am not allowed to question your faith.
