I have always been an atheist, there was no instance in my life where i thought there could be a god. But there were instance where i wanted to have something to believe in. I'm talking about depression, anxiety, and other mental complications. I remember that back then i just wanted someone to tell me that i'm not wrong, that i haven't gone crazy. Then i started to think about people who do believe in God. I realized that most of them have already figured life out. In their own terms, i'm sure. Since they already know -or think they know- how everything works (morals, life, people, your mind, consciousness) they have nothing to fear.
Religious people tend to be more mentally healthy, they have a lot of support, from their communities and from their friend god. Wouldn't that be better? To have a friend that will never leave you. To feel that you are loved.
I realize how pointless this question is, since, even if the answer were yes, that wouldn't change anything, we have no choice. But i'd really like to know what other people think.
