Lucky me (so far).
I have had many close calls, escapes from death.
Never did I ever expect to reach the age I am, and to still have my marbles.
Just good luck.
Some people have it, some don’t. Some believe our lives are preordained (meant to be)
Who is to say.
I believe as a mere human being, I will never find the answer.
I’ve stopped thinking about it. As your life evolves, you (at least I do) go with the flow.
In my youth, I was an atheist.
I no longer am.
I am Jewish and my parents were religious (but not fanatically so).
On “High holidays” they sent me to the local synagogue. On Friday night, my mother said Jewish prayers.
I went to the neighborhood Hebrew school until the age of 13.
When I was 13, I had a Bar Mitzvah – I became an adult.
I used to be an atheist.
Karl Marx said, “Religion is the opiate of the people.”
I believed him – but I no longer do.
Some people need religion. In times of stress and troubles it gives them solace, peace of mind.
I am no longer an atheist nor do I believe in a “Supreme being.”
There is so much poverty and misery in this world.
If there is a god, why doesn’t he do something?
I believe what I see (show me the money).
I will never know the answer and neither will anybody else.
