I Have No Problem With Prayer


So, I’m an atheist. I know that is going to open me up to a whole lot of bashing, and if so, then so be it. I’m not a devil worshipper or a witch. I am just a normal person.

I have no problem with prayer – as a matter of fact, I believe it can actually be a good thing. If you believe in something strongly and feel that prayer will help, then it just might. It sends positive vibes out into the universe, and positive energy can work. I personally don’t call that God. I call it “karma”. I welcome anyone to pray for me or for whatever they feel they need to do, because it causes good karma. When anyone asks for prayers, I send positive vibes. It’s all I can do.

I believe there is life on other planets. Why wouldn’t there be? Humans are not the only living things on Earth. Every creature that exists is able to survive. They all offer their different contributions to the world. Why wouldn’t there be creatures on other planets that have adapted to the conditions that are found there. They’ve probably gone through all sorts of evolution changes. But, all of that is out of my league. I am not able to elaborate, just express my gut feelings. I just can’t imagine that an Adam and Eve story applies in outer space or here on Earth.

When someone who claims to believe and God and is religious bashes me for my beliefs, I fail to see the goodness or the Godliness in them. If, in fact, they are correct in their beliefs, and I am wrong, then why don’t they just “pray” for me, or have understanding? What is it about religion and beliefs that cause some to be so violent and hateful? You do have to wonder about that.
