Born Atheist

Hindu, Muslim, Jews, Christian
There are too many to list
But yet i prefer being
a born atheist

But that doesnt mean
I dont know about them
Otherwise it is really
a matter of shame

Respect all religions
learn about them, in a gist
But yet am proud
to be a born atheist

Nomatter wherever i go
Nomatter whatever i do
I come across every religion atleast
but throughout my life i will be
a born atheist...

    If I read these people before me I see their true opinions. For a while I thought everybody is just complimenting the poets with nice words, but I see now it is different.
    Yes, I did study many religions also and I got to the point that I see the church as a business, it is not God's place. I do not go to the church either, but I do not call myself an atheist. God is not up there an old guy with a white hair, but He is the power, the electricity, the life in our hearts and the Law which is built into each of us. Once I read that the atheist is not godless, but that is their way how they know god, because when God created the world he created everyone and called good, anyway we all play out the law for each other and in this case you are the one in our mind who is like a philosopher, who when he sees a roasted chicken, calls it just a dead bird
    There is nothing wrong with you or us, because even you too you are the child of God, the Universal Power. Nobody is out of that power.
    I bless you. (Report) Reply

    Nobody in this world is born atheist.But on the contrary everybody is born
    theist. Read Swami Vivekanand's books It will throw light on this misconception
    called atheism. It will broaden your views and change your outlook, also
    style and substance of your poem My wishes ROHAN

    A philosopher is always in search of wisdom and not necessarily its possessor. To decide on your future preference already is not very advisable.......ofcourse as a poem it is a very good one.......maybe the ending should be changed to...but throughout my life will I be a born atheist?

    I find your poem crisp and delineated. I appreciate that you were aware of all the paths and made a choice based on your conviction. (Report) Reply

    A very sad poem. I cannot imagine how lonely it must be living outside of a relationship with God. I believe if you entrust your faith in happiness to temporary things; your happiness will be temporary. What future can a Godless eternity hold for you? (Report) Reply
