I have read many reasons why people are atheist on here. What has begun to bother me is many people's justification for their atheist point of view is not based on logic. Many seem to be coming from a place of anger then they attach theists for their injustices. Injustice is not mutually exclusive to religion. I think people should move past that and get their views from sound examination of facts and fiction. I don't believe there is a God for one reason and one reason only. I have no proof of his existence and the inconsistencies about who and what he is. I am not Atheist because of the flaws to religious institutions. To me that puts you in a very weak and shaky place. What do each of you think?
The nice thing about being over 50 is really not caring what other people think about you, your opinions or your way of life.
I have finally achieved the place where I can live my life as I want and ignore those who don't like it. Maybe I always could have, but I didn't get free until I discovered my own atheism in my 40's.
And I am the matriarchal figure that my children look up to so it is very nice for them that I don't interfer in their paths of life at all.
Surprise! None of the kids ever got infected with religion.
