Is it fate or choice through selfish meaning?

I have been baffled by the desire to live my life through what is righteous to mine own eyes, and giving what I can to the people I love, but it is my life, I live because that is what is mine, that is all. I am a physics major and have a hard time dealing with emotions from others when what I do is not to other's expectations because it is for my self, unholy in their eyes, what?!

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist
About Me:
Eccentric, but with great reason. I come from a family of individuals, ranging from theologian, engineer, artist, and a poet who likes to build robots. My life is a constant , ramble of interests, it holds very little structure, it is on the whim and out the door each day. I try to keep it friendly and kind. As for me, I am all science and art with a desire for knowledge from a spherical influence.
Why are you here?
I have questions for people who stand on a faith without faith.
The religion you left
Christian, Buddhism, Judaism
Why you left your religion.
I believe in dimensions other than our own, and the desire for people to need religion for fulfillment, which I think is beautiful, but beyond my own understanding.

My overall reaction after my first chat on this page was great, I don't think we got anywhere with a topic or understanding the different beliefs in the room, but it was thoroughly interesting and definitely a challenge.

I think where we left off was the matter of free will being in control, as it can only be controlled by you.

What I was trying to get at with this was how as humans, having faith is a channel which you choose to react through.

Faith being that my point of view…

Both, really, but add "reasoning" to the list. What kinds of questions did you have? You should write them down in your blog.
