As I mentioned on my home page, I’m relentlessly rational and evidenced-based. That pretty much prevents me from becoming an adherent to any religion.
One might opine that this makes my life easier, as I don’t have to obey the restrictions that all religions place on people. I don’t have to go to church. I don’t have to worry about sinning. There will be no retribution after my death. I don’t have to accept any moral strictures aside from the ones I value.
Actually it makes my life more difficult. I don’t get the sense of community that religion provides. I don’t have a connection to anything larger and more eternal. I don’t have a promise of an eternal happy place waiting for me.
As topics that have a religious connection come up I’ll put my thoughts down in this section. Enjoy!
