Well basically, I have never believed in God but I have never challenged the existence either. I live in a place in the U.S. that is very rare to find secular folks and as such I have made certain consolations and have been a closeted athiest for most of my life. Although I am adjusting to my new life. I have grown weary of hiding it yet I think labeling myself as an Atheist is even a little close minded for me. Some of the definitions I find agreeable while others not so much. I guess I am the religious equivalent to a bi-sexual. I am really a non-believer but I don't mind if you believe just don't put me in a situation where I feel like I have to hide my non-belief. That is where I am at right now. I don't expect to outwardly try and change society to be more secular but don't be surprised if I get mad and stand up for my non-beliefs if we go too far in the other direction either.
As for the other explanation of "Why am I here" I guess the short answer to me is that nobody really knows. Those that think or say that they do? Well, I pity them for they do not know the beauty and freedom of not knowing. Do what you do, life is not limitless, we only have a certain amount of time on this Earth and we don't know the size of that hourglass. It could be >< this big or >------< this big. My best solution is to enjoy every moment and when the hourglass runs out let go with no regrets and succumb to what is inevitable but do it with an open heart and a clear conscience!
