To me everything just is. Sure, I feel good and bad sometimes, but that's my body responding to the hills and valleys of what's around me. If I am
hurt somehow, I'll register pain and I will not like it. If I see another creature in pain, I will not like it. If I see another news story about
another massacre or war, I will not like it. But to me, these things just are. My responses to them are directly tied to my DNA and my environment.
It's our responses to our environment (intelligent or not) and the environment itself that has directed our evolution for (what's apparently) billions
I don't attach magical meanings to good and bad feelings. I don't believe in supernatural good and evil. In fact, I'd go a step further and say that
our universe depends on both good and evil forces. I interpret evil as ignorance (and separation). I interpret good as a harmony. Since our universe
has laws that force ignorance and separation onto our world, good and evil are byproducts. In total, I believe in a semi-deterministic reality that
has some cause/effect and some unpredictability.
I still feel every emotion available to me; good and bad; high and low.
I see life as a journey. A quest to understand what it all is and if there's a director from above. I swim between thoughts of divine forces and
expressions of 'basic' natural forces. I believe there's a reality outside me because I believe something cannot come from nothing. Insofar as God
crosses my mind, it's only a question of whether creation was/is influenced by an intelligence. I do not avoid considering a universe without a divine
power (like God). Maybe we really are the product of randomness. In some way, I think our mind is geared to ask WHY because we're looking for a person
behind the curtain, as when Dorothy and the others went to the Wizard of Oz. But the HOW is also important. And in the HOW we may discover there's no
answer to Is there a God?
