      Same. I didn't base my fundamental beliefs on any particular book, nor do I feel any urge to do so.

          I find this modern interpretation hilarious cause Yahweh was a skydaddy.
          It's probably his most defining feature as a God that he is a father to his people, but since atheists appropriated the term derogratively it's lead Christians to reject the term

            you bond with people you never met before on a deep and intimate level first try

            you don't doubt your destiny in the afterlife

            you see your nation and your present in the grand scheme of things

            I'm not even a Christian but having an unassailable sticking point for your entire existence and worldview is a pretty obvious asset for any philosophy. I read the Corpus Hermeticum recently and I envy the author's ability to confidently do just that.

      You aren't an atheist, but an ideological Christian in denial. A spiritual atheist finds the source of life's meaning within and interprets things from an entirely antithetical framework.

      Just be a deist. It's not a huge leap.

        There's no reason to think that life is meaningful as a deist.

          "Meaning" is something you experience. If you aren't experiencing meaning, it doesn't mean that life is meaningless, it means /your/ life currently is meaningless. You should probably do something about that. Service to others is the usual route to try.

    not quite lead my life but i read the stranger by camus in high school and was thrown into an existential crisis. i still dont remember what that priest was saying at the end but i remember the next two weeks i was extremely depressed, i was hopeless. but as it follows with existential crises, the person get some life changing epiphany. thats what happened to me and ive been a completely different person for the better. harder battles came in the future but i guess i was much more prepared to take them on (or simply survive them and not kms)

    You have to come to realize that the conception of God we have come to know is extremely loaded. As in God doesn't have to be some anthropomorphised entity. You can easily conceive as god as any natural element around you (so everything) because it contains in itself the record and directive for it's own existence which is awesome in it's own right. Or as square one, the first mover in existence, but this can no doubt never be grasped. Ultimately, it's not up to us to know such things. It's extremely logical that a group of highly conscious and intelligent beings who have just been dropped on a planet in the universe, and who don't know shit, would conceive of an ultimate king style ruler that is in charge of all, but this is something we eventually evolve past too. Could take the Nietzsche route, though it doesn't necessarily make things easier. Life is simply difficult.
