Atheists: Do you ever wish you did believe?
Sometimes I envy people of faith, if only because they can explain away all the bad things in the world as the will of the creator. It’s kind of like the blissful oblivion of childhood, I think. As a little kid, you don’t worry about the economy or wars or any of the other shit in the news.
Do you ever wish you could have faith?
I think this came to mind because I’m listening to Johnny Cash’s When the Man Comes Around. The song gives me chills every time I hear it, though I’m not a believer.
I just wanted to know what the rest of you thought.
