I have come to an understanding that when someone comes to the conclusion that religion is a myth, a major transition needs to take place in that person's way of thinking. As for me, this blog was my attempt to process it. This blog, Catholicism on the Rocks, was subtitled, "taking a break and thinking it through." Well now, I've thought it through. But, I see, I am not alone.
I've noticed many others feel the need to just "get it out there" that they don't believe anymore and why and what ramifications this has for them and others in the world. Why is this? Is it perhaps because such self identity is based in religion? For example, there are answers for everything. Who am I? God's child. Why am I here? To know and Love God. What am I to do? God's will. Now that we are free from faith, we must redefine who we are and what we believe to ourselves and to others.
But, this doesn't necessarily last forever. At some point we are over it. Now, discussing it becomes optional. We can move on with life and what we want to make of it without constantly referencing our former lives. So, here I am, moving on! To life!
