Not believing in God is like not shaving.

'Oh you're growing a beard' people say.

'No, I'm just not shaving.'

It's liberating when you discover the whole thing is based on nothing but man-made wish-thinking from our intellectual infancy.

Pardon my arrogance, but I look at it as confirmation that I am more intelligent than most Americans.

That's no great comfort! Not to insult the average citizen, but education is not one of the country's top values. It's like realizing that you are thinner than most Americans.

As someone who doesn't believe in god and doesn't shave, I fully support this description.

Sort of like 'losing his hair'.  It makes the guy sound so bloody absent minded - like his hair follicles aren't actually dying, and he doesn't have male pattern baldness - he just keeps losing his hair.  Where the hell does he keep putting it?  How should I know?  If we knew that we could just tell him - maybe tattoo it on his forearm - and then he'ld stop losing his hair!

'Balding' isn't much better really.  I mean it sounds so intentional, like 'growing a beard'.  I can just see this guy's resume - "Great Multi-tasker" (able to attend meetings while balding and beard growing).

Balding and beard growing?  Ah!  He is simply growing through his hair.

Oh, wait....THERE it is! I'm cured.

roflmao. I could see you doing that as part of your bit in a comedy show.

It's pretty much like not believing in Santa Claus or Unicorns or Voldemort: not something to which you give much thought. 

Freedom for me, and frustration that others don't get "IT"

Belle, a roller coaster period is a good time to be keeping notes for a memoir.

The religious beliefs I knew (Catholicism's) were so cruel that I felt no discomfort or confusion.

I felt a bit comforted that all of the world's major religions had a version of xianity's Golden Rule.

And I felt free.

Not believing in God? Feels the same as not believing in Zeus, Thor, Quetzlcoatl, Amaterasu, and Anasasi.
