Atheist

I have been trying to figure out what I believe spiritually.

I realize it is simple.

If there can be as much suffering as I have experienced in my one life, and meaningless gross suffering is happening all over the world and has since humans existed. I believe in no god.

I believe in the universe.

And too bad the universe seems extremely indifferent to anyone. But that indifference also explains my suffering and the human problem of suffering.

A beautiful honest quote. I will be reading more of this mans work. I’m not sure of what his religious views are yet but this quote very deeply resonated with me.

“Every account of a higher power that I’ve seen described, of all religions that I’ve seen, include many statements with regard to the benevolence of that power. When I look at the universe and all the ways the universe wants to kill us, I find it hard to reconcile that with statements of beneficence.”

astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson
