The part of me who wishes he still had faith is the same part that wishes for the return of the innocence of childhood. The more mature part of me, however, sees both as states of dependence. I had a revelation, as well. Since the dawn of mankind, there have been many different explanations of the origin of the universe and what happens when we die. Some attribute creation to God, some attribute it to multiple Gods, some to no God. And, even among those who share a belief in a single Supreme Being, there are widely differing opinions on the details. Secondly, even if you had a spacecraft capable of infinite fuel, water and food, as well as the ability to suspend the aging process, you could drive that hooptie off into outer space and never reach the end of it. It is unfathomable, just as death is unfathomable to the living. To me, it stands to reason that if there is a force that holds dominion over both, then that force must be equally unfathomable.
