The belief, based solely on reason, in a God who created the universe and then abandoned it, assuming no control over life, exerting no influence on natural phenomena, and giving no supernatural revelation.

Atheism exists. It is not very common, percentage wise, but it is a real faith. In my view, it has an especially self-righteous certainty that they are correct.... only say that because of all the paranormal things I have seen, things that both atheists and theists generally disbelieve.
Any logical individual reaching the stage of physical adulthood should realize the consequences of the sex act. Yet, in this nation, we have been prohibited from gaining free access to information regarding human sexuality, especially with respect to birth control. Organized religion has been a major opponent of the distribution of birth control information, the lack of which has led to the increased incidence of child neglect, child abuse, and above all, the use of abortion *as a birth control measure.* We are animals. We are part of the primate group, and as such, our sexuality is an important part of our social structure. Denial or limitation of the availability of information regarding human sexuality and the birth process fosters degeneracy. Information regarding these physical processes has nothing to do with religion, morality, or ethics. They are simple facts that should be available to all.

These paranormal experiences would most certantly affect what you believe, and I think whatever you believe is fine. Just know thats all it is, what you believe. Not more right or wrong, just truth to you. An atheist does not feel the are more correct, it's just truth to them.
