I mean, specifically what do you know about me and my beliefs, that you can declare that I am indeed "missing it"?
Please do enlighten me if you care to be so bold.
Especially since I was raised in the church.

deedee3849--Why is that so offensive to you? It is offensive that you consider yourself wise enough and holy enough to make that judgement FOR me. You aren't. Would you argue that your heart is not indeed closed to God, or even the concept of God? I gave him 30 years to get it right. He failed and I gave up faith in the unbelievable. I was open to that crap for a long time. How then could you possibly understand the benefits of a relationship with God when you reject the concept of Him? I found no benefits in my one-sided "relationship" with god. I was ignored for 30 years. But certainly my experience would allow me to understand the "benefits" you might name...even if I thought them sad and wrong.

What exactly am I, an atheist, "missing" about religion? Sahm, as a fellow atheist and someone who knows you pretty well from cafemom...you aren't missing a damn thing!

Deedee's heart is closed to Allah, I suspect, as well as to Zeus, Odin, Buddha, Shiva, and thousands of other icons and deities of other religious and spiritual beliefs. Shame on you, deedee, for closing your heart to all of them. All they want is for you to love and honor them, and they will show you the beauty, depth and salvation of their religions.
OP, all you need is the FSM. Remember: He boiled for your sins. RAmen.
