Hi I am newly discovering a name for what I believe or better yet not believe. I just wanted to know if anyone is having the same doubts as I. I just am at odds with knowing what the meaning of life…Continue
"Hey, April. I just wanted to check in and make sure you were doing OK. Last I heard you were having some problems coping with your atheism and the ways in which your family would take it. Is everything all right? I certainly hope so. If you need…"

"The meaning of life?If death is the end of everything, then living is everything.That, to me, means depth of experience. You're not going to get much depth from religious dogma. But you can from your relationships and work and…"
"April what types of resources are you looking for? A lot of the stuff people are recommending are books about why religion is bad, not if it is true or not.
I would recommend the following if you want a scholarly and well thought out opinion…"
"I haven't read through any of the replies yet, so I may be repeating some things.
Everyone seems to want to know the meaning of life, and are discouraged if they find it doesn't have a specific purpose built in. But why?
My feeling is that…"

Meaning of life - I guess it's what you make of it.

Married mother to 1, stepmother to 2. I love things that aren't believed in! I love the occasional debate with my christian mother and how she fears for my soul. I just want answers, thats all!
Why are you here?
I grew up a Christian, being forced as a teenager to go to church. No I am married to a catholic. Not sure what the meaning of life is. I just want some answers and hopefully this is where to start. I have a daughter that I want to teach good values too but I don't want to lie about a place that may not exist in this world.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I just simply do not believe in GOD or Jesus. I do believe in Hope and having Faith in the people around me. We are ultimatly responsible for our fates and waiting on a GOD to do something is not what I believe it. I do hope this is the first step into understanding!
