Fifty 29

Do you believe in God? Why or why not?

I do. I can’t not. I tried for a while in high-school, just as I tried to get addicted to coffee or to cigarettes at times, when I though it’d be more dramatic.  I'm Catholic and I love my church, it's so full. Not believing in God would be, for me, like not believing in my husband, or in my daughter; it isn’t something I can do, for which I’m eternally grateful.


  1. Well, you already know my answer. :) It would be very difficult for me to be an atheist. Agnostic, I could probably pull off. It just seems to me that the beauty and artistry in the world is unlikely to be the product of unaided evolution (evolution, maybe, but certainly not by itself). And my own yearning for the supernatural is too deeply ingrained for me to not imagine it comes from somewhere.

    I love being Catholic, too--it's "so full", as you say. :)

  2. I know, I almost skipped this one, but I decided to go for it anyway..yearning for the supernatural - I don't know many people who don't, which I think is indicative of something, as you said.. :)
