It is apparent to me that you are going through some huge decision in your life that would bring you to consider this. So I'll take this seriously and say that I was raised Roman Catholic, but I live with my own variations.Originally Posted by Aikido
God is, from a sociological perspective, the resultant of thousands of years of human philosophy. Can people live without god to give power to their ethics? Men have been spared and blood has been shed under His name, and yet that name is empty. A whisper on a wind that never blew. God is a force of change on this planet, as assured as the movement of glaciers over time and deterioration of the O3 later of our atmosphere. There is a certain solemnity witnessed at the mention of His name, that you find in no other situation. But most importantly, he is the Prime backer of the human code of ethics. He says "Do not kill", and millions of killers sheath their hatred. He says "Do not steal", and the shopkeepers find their inventory safe for the day. In the big picture, He does not have to exist to influence. But His influence is limited to those who have the time and patience to listen.
So if you are thinking about your own personal beliefs, consider your motivation, your needs, and your background just as you consider the result of disbelief, the consequence.
