No offense intended

…to those of you with religious beliefs and differing philosophical beliefs. This is my belief and opinion, written and clarified for me (without them knowing that that was what they were doing!) by siliconshaman:

The Tao of the Silicon.Shaman - amataur philosphising..

My reply:

Thank you for writing/posting this. It is something that I have been wrestling with myself recently having been brought up Xtian as a child, becoming a born again Baptist at about age 15, losing my faith to science, logic and common sense at about 18 and now, at 41 with a chronic illness and a growing sense of my mortality but with no kids, I have been conflicted about my wish to 'leave something behind' and the futility of doing so. Unless I can write a classic novel, release a best-selling album or become very famous in some other way (all very unlikely), I will not be remembered for more than a few years by anyone. This was hurting. A lot. I had been coming to similar conclusions as you have but reading this has just crystalised it for me.
Thank you.
