I will say,
'Lord, i saw no signs, and if you did indeed send them they were not enough to convince me of your exsistance as there were many more suggesting you
did not exsist in the traditional sense. I am a man of reason and logic lord, and that is the way you have made me, therefore in my life, if i saw
more signs pointing to you not exsisting, i was naturally inclined to believe the line in which more evidence presented itself. You will know lord i
was religious in my youth, but unfortunately, those whom were chosen to represent your teachings did so in such a poor way they drove myself and many
like me away from your word. If you are to punish anyone, my lord, for the lack of faith in todays world, i say start by punishing those you have
entrusted to keep the sacred word alive and lead by example. As many of these people lord are exaclty what detracts from you teachings and drives many
of my generation away.'
Your right i am at the 0 level according to your little list... i do things because i deem them to be the right thing to do. I do things that will
make the lives of the people around me easier. I do things that will have the most positive impact on my close friends, family and the world as a
whole.. i do not do things because someone worte in down in a book a couple of millenia ago (a book which has been re-interpreted many times mind
you)... i was once religious, and i have studied many religions looking for spiritual peace within myself... i found my peace... i realised that you
dont have to belive in anything, just live a good life.
