After my blog “Hi, I’m An Atheist” got posted to my facebook account, I had an interesting conversation with one of my friends – which included being asked the question Why do atheists talk about God so much if they don’t believe in him?
There are basically two types of atheists – ones who are atheists and aren’t looking into religion at all, and those that are looking into religion.
I am one of the latter, as I also accept that I do not know everything and I cannot disprove the existence of God. I have many problems and issues with religion/God. I also disagree with and am appalled by a lot of religious writings, acts and things that are said.
However, it is said that God (the Christian God that is) is completely good, unconditionally loving and all just. If this is true and God does exist – that’s a pretty good thing to be missing out on.
So I search, trying to find proof and trying to figure out how these bad things are actually good – it’s true that I haven’t found any of these yet but doing this means that I talk about God to believers and non-believers.
Religion and non-religion is a big thing is life – it shapes a lot of how you think about yourself, how you make decisions and how you view the world. Whether or not I believe in God – it is important to me to know the truth.
How much do you talk about religion?
