These are my thoughts. I do not expect anyone to agree with me completely nor do I care if you disagree with me in any way. These beliefs and thoughts are the accumulation of over 60 years on this planet and over 40 years of the awareness of the damage that so many inflict on one another with the most insane and greedy justifications. Much of what follows has been said by others, just not to my satisfaction.

Spiritually, I waver between agnosticism and atheism. I can believe that the universe was created by some force far, far beyond any human comprehension but I can also wrap my mind around a reality in which this universe and possibly an infinite number of other universes exist simply because they exist. The reality is that the two beliefs are closer to one confirmed view than two separate and uncompromising views. Does it matter if a force so powerful as to have the inconceivable authority to create such a vast reality really exists? Does it matter if we believe that such a power does not exist but, rather, reality is reality because it is reality? Is there even an infinitesimal possibility that such a power would even notice our existence and demand our feeble and worthless “worship” or would we be simply another passing but astonishingly simple minded, self-serving bacteria infecting a grain of dust in an infinite universe?
