Could you say the same about yourself?
I don’t believe in God, because my idea of God is the object in my mind, and if I ever try and believe in it I come upon a reality that is very uncomfortable, one that I recognize not as anything spiritual but as that which exists through my senses. It’s full of death and suffering and disease. So basically, I don’t want to go there.
However, I understand the nature of reality and its eternal property and characteristics. So by realizing this my ego is sent towards that realm. That is where I do want to go. By realizing this, I know the reality beyond the duality of good and evil, thus making me, “like a god.” And although I don’t care if you worship me or not, I think it’s pretty damn cool to think of myself as a god. Don’t you? If only for the ego stroke 🙂
So basically, you really just believe what you want to believe and reason, logic and evidence has nothing to do with? Well, I guess your not an atheist if you believe you’re a god.
No, I don’t believe in a god, but I also don’t believe that I am one. My realization makes me sentient, not a “god”. I just don’t think that is an appropriate word for it. My definition of a god is a sentient being that created the universe in one way or another. I didn’t create the universe.
