Refreshing article! Opening ones mind and heart to not-knowing to actually experience reality rather make it conform to a limited world view is liberating.

Well, in Poland there are atheist priests too: they have chosen this profession only because it offers light work and a good salary. :-)

Of course, not all priests are atheists, but some are.

Interesting that those who were religious turned their backs on him yet an atheist helped him obtain enough funds to be able to support himself and his children until he could get back on his feet.

Time and time again I read where many of the religious are only religious to a point, that others hold to some high standard but they themselves only follow certain parts of their faith provided it neatly fits in. Or the people are rigged to the point that the word "love" only fits for those who live the same lifestyle.

Thou shall not kill but will support the death penalty and go off to war. Will not give a homosexual the time of day yet will cheat on their wife. Must fit in to some special place that they "judge" to be the only time one is worthy to be around, hold a job, to be helped so on and so forth. Can't be different in any way and certainly must hold the same views. Wasn't there something about not judging?

As was said by Bill Maher "I have no problem with people being Christian if they were more like Christ."

"Religions" only want to control you. Being spiritual, if that interests you, is totally different. I know more atheists who are Christ like than I know Christians who practice Christs teachings.

If all humans believed they could take a different path to experience life in a new light, the earth would be a different place. We are renewed with each breath, but some philosophies become stifled and don't allow the exhale.
