It must be about a year now since I decided that atheism may be the best fit for my existence.. and I do feel as though I am on more solid ground now than I had ever felt trying to feel secure about a belief in 'God'. I always felt it seemed kind of silly to 'worship something'.. anyway, that IS a primitive practice and it avails nothing. Salvation?.. Christian baloney.
I find people are naturally decent, compassionate, law-abiding, etc; its wired into our brains to be the way we are after all these years of becoming civilized and still improving..
Of course difficult & stressful situations arise - shit happens - ..that's life, sigh.. (moan). Just gotta take responsibility and git on with it. Yes, sir! Kinda funny- when I was in the navy we had a captain on one of the ships I was on who liked to use the expression "GOYA!" which means Get Off Your Ass!!
