Well, Karenity? Now you have me wondering about the Homotheists and the Transtheists, and how they might be coping...

Ok, I'll go away now...

I came in the wrong door as well but enjoyed the wisdom in this room.  Some of us live solely by something very small and it seems to work well, called "The Golden Rule." No expectations, no limitations, and simply trying to be the best human you can be, and learning by your actions as you go.  By doing to others as you would like to be treated yourself it simplifies things to me.  In other words, if it feels good I do it, if not, I don't, and the work is living with the decision I made. Too simple right?  Seems to work as an unencumbered way of life for me anyway.  I guess I am a hard agnostic if anything I suppose, never really thought of a name for me before.  I don't depend on the hereafter, but instead put all my energy into the here and now.  I do respect others with faith, and get something from them all to enrich my life, but I use it in the here and now, does that make any sense? I often say, "God Bless You," as they believe he will, not me.  Okay, off to bed, I am "tard".

Ah mysteria, so you're basically doing virtue ethics? the ethical theory based on aristotle? that's interesting.
