    Default Atheists

    How can atheists fill in the void left from the realization that there are no absolutes/great power(s) out there which have some kind of ultimate control over the universe? Some just fill in the blank with things like their jobs or sports, but others are not so easily satisfied. Will there eventually be an atheistic equivalent of religion, such as "worshiping" the government, corporations, or one of our own creations? Just a taught any opinions would be great
    If you have any information in relation to human trafficking/pimped ladies

    *Act responsibly freephone 1800 25 00 25 *

    That one call could save a life

    Quite easily, I don't require the crutch of a higher power to stumble through life with. We already have a type of heaven when you look at the wonders that surround us, a babys laugh, a womans smile, the cosmos above, the inferno below. The miracles of life, geology all around us. Problem with humans is we always want to see if something better exists somewhere else, be it over the horizon on or another plain of existence, we already are in a place that if heaven did exist it may be quite bland by comparison and its eternal patrons may wish to trade that eternity for what we have, however fleetingly we have it.

    If Religion is a man made construct then heaven and hell must be also. I refuse to go though life worrying about a set of rules someone figured would be cool 2000 years ago.

    I have to say I'm pretty sceptical about atheism.

    I have faith in the Lotto to lead me to salvation!

    i don't believe there is a seperate, superior being to mankind.
    but i firmly believe in truth and karma. often the nitty gritty
    of our human existance can mask the spiritual side. the cosmos is so
    delicately balanced, if the sun were nearer or further we wouldn't exist.

    I'm not very religious but I think it's important to have some beliefs to make u lead a good life maybe ur a full on holy Joe or just simply believe treat others as wish to be treated .... Don't think it matters as long as it's something!!

    I myself believe in a higher power but who or what I don't know also all are equal including every species therefore I also believe in vegetarianism very strongly but won't get in preachy and in your face lol

    Well I used to be Agnostic,but now I'm not so sure.
    There is an all embracing power out there...it's called physics.I go for Darwinism everytime, were only carriers of genes and DNA. Were born, we live, we die, back to the atoms that produced us in the first place. The human race has the arrogance to think that we are the end of the evolutionary scale, sorry ,but were not. The wonders of the world are all there to see, the rest is just human vanity.
