Faith and Belief

Islam.. or most religions as I gather are a belief system, which is to say believe someone outside of you without questioning it.
I think Belief without questioning raises self doubts within and one is NOT allowed to clear those doubts, they learn to live with those doubts and honestly self doubt is like killing with slow poison.
Even then doubts are as sacred as their belief. You question their beliefs, their self doubts come to the surface and turn into anger.
The thing is, deep inside they cannot and have not ever had full faith in their beliefs..
I have posted a passage from Osho on my timeline.. read it to get the understanding.

Silent God

If you were God, what would you say?
"Silence.... "
People took me as Fire
People took me as Brahma, Vishnu
People took me as Yahweh
People took me as God, father of Jesus
People took me as Allah
Then people fought amongst who took me the right way.
I remained Silent
Silence is my strength
Silence is my weakness
Silence can be interpreted either way.

Why am I an atheist.

Islam could be good enough.. and for that matter, so do the rest of the religions of the world. To me religion is supposed to be a rule book. Animals don't have any religion, perhaps they don't need to follow rules. But if you watch them carefully, each animal has certain rules it follows. The rules are related to survival and sexual. These two are the basic instincts of every living thing.
I have deliberated a lot on religion and if I am going to be driven by it, basically driven by heaven and hell, which I know works on the human greed and fear. I decided I would rather work from love and respect. I do things if I love or respect it and I try to do it unconditionally.
So far, being an atheist has helped me clear my mind and made me into a better and more tolerant person than I ever was. Just changing the premise on which I based my life upon has been key in my progress. It works for me to be not attached to any religion. Maybe for many others religion is the dose they need to get on with their lives easily..
I am Ok if they are Ok and they should be Ok if I am Ok.

[14/04, 7:32 am] Shazia: Atheism or theism..both are being black and white and judging is something i dont do. Calling names is not my thing. But i condemn harming someone. If a atheist harms anyone i would condemn it just the same.
[14/04, 7:35 am] Shazia: But between the two evils, for i am always choosing between two evils that i have to choose from, in order to get thru life, i choose the lesser evil and for me atheism is a lesser evil by far. Even if religion is a good thing, one thing is for sure, am not believing in any one religion. Therefore for me all God Allah Bhagwan would be same.
