For many years my favorite song has been 'Imagine' by John Lennon. I seem to find that it is on many people's list of favorites. It was brought back (as if it ever left) by A Perfect Circle, which is one of my favorite bands. I can listen to it for hours, back to back.
I like the song for all of it's lyrics. I am an atheist. I don't believe there is a God. I don't think there is an afterlife. I think today, right here, right now is all we have. I tried to be a Christian. I tried Wicca. I tried several differently philosophies and have come to atheism, with a hint of Buddhism (which no deity is involved with) to be where I have comfortably settled. After researching, living and trying out different ideas I am pretty happy with being where I am. So, you may wonder, why is it you never talk about it? Are you ashamed of your stance?
