"You make a good point, and maybe the most valuable thing about our momentary existence is the fact that we can contemplate it at all.  In fact, we can create meaning in our life, any meaning at all, and pursue that meaning.   You could…"

"I'm not saying that I don't enjoy life, I love my life right now and I hope to continue to do so until I die. I guess what I am trying to say is in the end it doesn't matter how you lived your life. I feel this way of thinking gives…"

Justin replied to Duck Tricks's discussion 'This is what I believe.'
"I chose the term Atheist simply because a lack of a belief in a god is assumed most are horrible people. I can honestly say I'm a good person and one that does not believe in a god. That's where almost all my talk of religion ends on my…"

"You can't believe you are an atheist.  Either you believe in a God or you don't.     I agree though.  In the end we are no better than a maggot in the trash.     So poetically nihilistic it is.  :)"

This is what I believe.

I have never "voiced" my beliefs before but I had this need to write and this is what came out...or at least a brief rough draft of what goes through my mind when I hear friends and families conversations.I respect all opinions and this is mine.
