Because I am an atheist: Mano Singham

Today’s contribution comes from fellow FTBorg Mano Singham:

Because I am an atheist…

…I experience a tremendous feeling of intellectual liberation. For many years I struggled to reconcile my scientific understanding of the world with the constraints imposed by believing in a god. When I tentatively tried out the ‘What if there is no god?” hypothesis, I experienced a sense of freedom so profound that I knew immediately that there was no going back. Now I feel free to go wherever my mind takes me and explore any idea without the sense that there are some questions whose answers will remain forever inscrutable. There are no “Stop! No Entry” signs in the intellectual road map of an atheist. The highways are wide open and call out for adventure.

    I’d recommend asking him on his own site. He may not see your question here.

    I was about 35 when this happened. I know, I should have figured things out sooner.
