What do I believe in?
Do I believe in God? No. I believe it doesn't really matter. If you believe in one god or a hundred gods or none, what should really matter most is if you are a good person.
Do I believe in a Heaven or Hell? Kind of, but not in the way most people think. I believe that heaven and hell are created by humans; and that it can exist here on earth. If people are mean to each other and don't care about their fellow creatures on this earth they have created hell, not just for the suffering but for all. If people are kind and loving toward each other, they have then created a type of heaven. Think about that poor starving child half-way across the world, bloated from malnutrition, flies around her face, and tell me if she is not already living in hell. Then imagine that same child, healthy from the food and medicine that she and her family needs to survive, now able to attend school, and she will probably tell you that she is living in heaven. The world is what we make it. And, though, I don't believe in an actual heaven in the sky or a hell beneath our feet, I believe that humans have the ability to make this world a heaven or a hell.
