Comment: good to see you're awake enough

(See in situ)

good to see you're awake enough

to understand that Atheists/Agnostics are also religious beliefs!
This is a rough sketch of how I see it. A person looked around the wide expanse of whatever land and asked, "Is this it? Is this all there is?" There was a feeling inside that there must be something more. This led to what we'd today call 'soul searching', and from that a greater knowledge than that of the mundane was discovered. Example from physical world standpoint: Atoms were first explained in the Vedas.
I find these descriptions about ancient atomic blasts interesting:
But that's only the end part. There has to be a creative power that comes before the destruction. What is that?
If you are truly, honestly and diligently seeking the wisdom beyond the known, you need not look; it will find you.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
