> I guess it's hard for me to believe that people believe in god.

What is your description of the god that you feel other people believe in that you do not?

It really doesn't matter to me if you believe in God or not. You are a good person. However, I am curious which god you don't believe in. Perhaps there is a conceptualization of a god that you would find rewarding to discover.

That the Universe exists at all is a miracle to me. It is the actualization of existence out of nothingness that I find the most compelling reason to acknowledge a higher power. For me, this becomes more of a spiritual connection with God than a religion paying ritualized homage to Him. Because of my beliefs, I feel more connected to everything around me. I feel one with the Universe, even if I don't understand anything about its workings. Somehow, this spiritual connection brings me solace for my pain, and a positive energy to move forward rather than capitulate.

I am convinced that my spiritual connection with God has helped prevent me from committing suicide.
