This is the very first attempt to express my kind of philosophical self. Please, do not get offended by my writing style or opinions and enjoy, if possible. 😉
According to statistics one-third of the world population are atheists. Me, as someone who hails from the most atheistic country in Europe, find this topic rather interesting. About 50% of citizens in the Czech Republic claim to be not religious, but instead of God, a significant part of them still believes in something beyond our world, myself included. The main difference is I call it The Universe because I was not brought up in the faith of God, therefore I find myself incompetent to call it that way.
While doing my minor research for this post I was quite surprised by the number of types of atheism. In the broadest sense, it means the absence of belief in deities and as far as I am concerned none of them admits that kind of faith (or philosophy, if you want) I described. Although, this all denies the headline of this post, for me atheism is kind of personal religion, or even better in this case – philosophy, only without any sacred texts and mythological figures. I mean, there must be something that influences our world from above, right?
