The Human Myth
As anyone who knows me can attest, I am not a religious man. I do not believe in a God or gods, and yet I am the first to acknowledge the mysteries of the universe are innumerable and I do not have all the answers.
My mind wanders to what happens after death. Will I be reunited with my beloved dad, and the relatives I’ve missed so much with whom I grew up?
How and why am I spiritually inclined, and yet am loathe to attend a religious service to worship a deity in which I do not believe?
I guess I am, simply, a flawed, multi-dimensional human being.
Like the rest of us.
