My son once asked me if I believed in God. I told him I did. He said he thought it was a silly concept. He really was leaning toward the ideas of the athiests. (He was 15 at the time, and really wanted to be a rebel.) I told him that the problem with being an athiest is that you had to identify who you were by using God. I believed it to be moot. If you spend your spiritual life trying to prove God doesn't exist, you almost have to use the beliefs of his existence to do so, if you ever can. I believe that if God didn't exist society would create him. Religions come from social connections and how could you ever prove something so abstract as a belief to be wrong. I'm not anit-religion. Some of my dearest friends are deeply religious, and I admire them for their devotion. I'm just not good with rules. I prefer to see the actions of people who profess their beliefs.
