I just don't understand, can't even wrap my head around, how people can be religious. I get the need, the want, the hope that something is waiting for us after death, but I just can't believe that there is. I feel like it is the same as an adult who whole heartedly believes in Santa clause... its ridiculous. There's an omnipotent being out there who hears your thoughts and controls all that happens in this world, in the lives of billions of people? It just confuses me that anyone could truly believe it.
I want to believe in something, would love to think that I will be reunited with the people I love after I die, but I know I never will. I lost my blind faith a long time ago.
