I find that to be even more interesting actually. I think my head is just spinning because I love life and the universe. I am absolutely shocked and stunned to find myself here. Sometimes I am just like, WTF? Why, how the....who....speachless.
I assume the "WTF? why, how the....who..." feeling is the basis for most religious beliefs.

I use to have some strange ideas about a deistic god, and a realm outside of this one where we would go when we die. I think it was a bit of a transition between Christianity and Atheism. I understood why Christianity was complete nonsense, but the idea of an after life or a deeper purpose still hid inside me. The moment that goes away is the moment an individual decides to base what they believe in evidence instead of wishful thinking. There is no reason to believe there is a god or an afterlife, so I will live my life accordingly.

I have to admit, I still feel the faint yearning for a belief in an afterlife. I guess that's what happens when someone grows up under the assumption there is a god. Although that period of crazy afterlife theories was not that long ago, hopefully the fleeting yearning for a belief in an afterlife will subside completely.
