Hello everyone. I have only recently discovered that I am an atheist. It took a lot of searching to discover this. At first I was a christian and I threw myself into it. The only problem was that I kept on discovering things that made no sense to me. So then I tried Buddhism and went deeply into it only to find myself facing teachings that went against rational thinking. Finally I tried Hinduism with the she result. I wanted to believe but kept coming across irrational beliefs that I couldn't ignore. So here I am. I've found no religious belief system that I could square with basic rational thinking skills. My problem now is I'm experiencing a lack of purpose or meaning. This is one thing religion provides in abundance. So I'm just looking to hear from others who may have experienced something similar and what they have done.
