You pray, I meditate. We come to the same moral conclusions, yet you hate me because I choose not to believe in your god. The god who preaches acceptance and love, I fail to understand. Do you hate me because I don't need a god to teach me acceptance, morals, love, and compassion? I meditate for twenty minutes, you say a prayer that I will be kind enough to say lasts two minutes. It's almost as if you use god as a fast track for inner peace. Are you too weak of mind and spirit to find inner peace within yourself? Do you need an imaginary third party to give you the spiritual strength to do the right thing? Or are you just upset with me because I don't?
I fail to understand not out of ignorance, but out of confusion. I am confused as to why I am capable of finding the things I need through self reflection and meditation, and you are not. You argue that god is real, I disagree and know that life is reality. Am I so wrong to value life, moreso than a being who clearly isn't real? Or are you upset that I don't need a god to value life? People are so concerned with what happens when life ends, that they let it rule the life they are living. If you believe in god and live a good moral life, and I don't believe in god and live a good moral life. Do you still feel you are better than I am? You believe that you will go to some great heavenly place, and I won't even despite the fact I have done just the same amount of good as you? You live in fear of death and what happens afterward. I live with purpose to make my death insignificant, and make my life mean something.
I wish we could come to the agreement that despite what you believe, and despite what I believe, that we are both good people. Both capable of doing great and good things. I don't hate you for believing in god, why do you hate me because I don't?
