To be honest the whole room analogy was kind of a stream of consciousness kind of blurting, there's bound to be tons of holes in it hehe. Good job
keeping me honest, I got lazy there.
Yes Atheism is a stance, but I am not rooted to the floor by it. It's not that i REFUSE to believe in god(s) it's that nothing has came upon me as
sufficient to REFUSE to believe there isn't one. Personally the universe makes more sense to me without a god. I suppose this makes me sound more
like an Agnostic, but I generally argue and debate from an Atheist viewpoint.
I suppose you could be tinted, as you say, by Atheism, and never see another room clearly, and therefore a Bias develops. At least i can still see
something, whereas once you subscribe to one religion, you pretty much are blind to anything else. Sure some people convert, but to me that means they
never fully bought into their original belief in the first place. If what you had going in your Christian room was so awesome, why would you leave?
Whereas my Atheism room, sure my glasses may filter the god dependancies in other rooms, I can still take away some really good elements to
incorporate. It's not that i want to leave my room, it's that I'm hungry for more ideas and concepts.
