so here i am... an atheist.. or maybe that's what i think i am for the time being. beats being a free thinker cus i think it makes me feel apathetic..
me & weilian talked bout religion... more specifically christianity & i started thinking bout religion & how it has affected e ppl ard me.. & am surprised & still puzzeled @ the profound effects it has on us... the support it gives, how it can juz save ppl frm depression...
maybe it's just an alternative to being alone... for me i think it's smthing that i hold on to when i feel lost... everyone has their own judgement bout relgion, their own skeptism, own fears & believes. but i guess e most impt tt matters is whether one is truly happy in what ever u do. no fear, no doubt.. so the most similar term i found for this judgement - atheist...
my general distaste for christians come frm e fact tt christians promote their faith... i once condemned a diarist for leaving a note in my opendiary saying god loves me. so what if he does or doesn't? towards religion my feeling is tt of apathetic youths towards politics. i didn't regret what i said to her, & i nvr will... though i've found an explanation for my doubts, my attitude towards any religion doesn't change. i dun trust it & i dun believe in it.
* an appeal to all christians who read this, pls do nt be offended by the content below, thanks*
