And that's precisely why I'm not an atheist, because atheism leads to the gulag.
Most people claim to believe in God cause they really think there is one. It's refreshing to meet someone who admits that's not the real reason to believe.
I don't *know* if God exists. But I have to have *faith* that he does, because an atheistic universe would mean that ultimately existence, and life, has no meaning.
IF life has no meaning then I see no reason why I should toil in it. It is my faith that ultimately all my struggles serve some meaningful purpose that keeps me at it.
