I'm not really sure what you are getting at exactly. You say you didn't believe in god - that would make you a skeptic.
The best thing I know to tell you is how knowledge is measured. Knowledge isn't measured based just on what you know. The true measure of
knowledge is based on the questions you ask. As the questions you ask are based off existing knowledge, combined with the intelligence to take it
to the next step.
I truly believe that if you seek, you will find it. While sometimes the answers don't come as quickly as we may like, they will eventually come.
And sometimes you have to wait for specific answers until the time has come because there might be other things which need to be asked and answered
first. EG: What happens after death. That answer will surely come, but it isn't time for it yet. Of course, we can still think of the logical
I personally think some questions will never be answered here on earth. It just isn't possible. I see people say we are so much more advanced
today than we were 2000 years ago. But are we really? We have more technology sure. But we are still faced with the same questions people like
Socrates asked thousands of years ago.
Overall I find nothing wrong with being a skeptic. To be a skeptic you are asking the question - is this real/right/true. It's good IMO to be
skeptical. What isn't good is when you go from skeptic to debunker. As debunkers aren't asking the question - is this real/right/true, but
rather are trying to prove to those who ask that question their point of view is correct. Which is different than someone making logical points
from where they have also asked the same question.
