Hi I am newly diagnosed and I know alot of people rely on their faith for support and find great peace with that, however I am a atheist and was wondering if anyone else here was also.

thanks

My committed Christian, supremely intelligent best friend is convinced she is going to live forever in Heaven in a renewed body after she dies.  I wish I could believe her and join her... it sounds so appealing.

Raeinnz, my heart goes out to the people of New Zealand.  Stay safe.

I understand what you were saying above.  An elderly friend of mine recently lost a daughter to cancer and she was telling me how she missed her daughter but that she had total faith that her daughter is in Heaven and that she will be with her again there.  I'm glad that she has that faith as I don't know how she would have made it through all she has without it.  But it's not part of my belief system.

I have found it comforting just to think that my energy and matter will continue in the universe after I'm gone, even though I don't have a belief that I will be conscious of that.

River Rat ... I was thinking about this last night.  I guess it is comforting for most to think they will be with their loved ones when they die.  It just doesn't work for me ... more along the lines of dust to dust and ashes to ashes for me.  I do think my 'matter' will be changed and maybe be good food for all my flowers.

Death to me seems like a very long nap.
