Beyond Blame and Further Still

There was one nice thing about believing in a god with a face (or human-like persona). I had someone to blame, someone to be angry at. It was an unpleasant little luxury.
"Why are 'You' letting this happen to me?!"
"What did those third-world kids do that 'You' allow their suffering?!"
"Answer meeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Ceasing to believe in an almighty god removed a lot of anger for me. I had to apply reason, I had to accept cause and effect. There is more beyond cause and effect though. Sometimes there are things that escape my knowledge or my ability to understand.
I will not make a new religion of reason. I like a universe with a little mystery to it.
