Spirituality vs Atheism

People practice various religions. Let it be Hinduism,Christianity,Islam or Judaism,all of them believe in god. Though their way of worship is different and their ideologies differ they all surrender to the supreme. But there is always an exception in everything. Here the exception is a set of non believers called atheists. They also criticise various practices followed by the believers. Though most of them are invisible,some of them dare to insult the believers for their own gain. But frankly speaking,atheism can be dubbed as an experience. I don't remember many people born as an atheist.its generally a single generation phenomenon. It is ironical to find that some of the atheist's children are staunch believers in god. They ensure that they do everything that their father had bullied about.But there is an atheist in many of us. But its not dominant. Even if it may be dominant over faith for a small period of time,its fades away as the position of that person returns to normal. Remember the time when you were in desperate need of help. The time of sufferings when your prayer fell on deaf ears,many of us would have told that there exist none called god,if he was really existed he would have helped us and he will never go soft on politicians who cheat crores of people and live without problems. But when we get adequate attention and our mental position returns to normal we tend to change the statement by saying that politicians will be punished in hell or their time will come soon if not now. But few people who never recover from that position will forever remain an atheist and others' indisputable faith in the almighty would fuel their atheism. But many of today's atheist are believers in god and they keep their atheism tag for political gain... According to me atheism is a personal feeling and they must not try to spread it to others. The best example for people who practice atheism for political gains may be periyar who earned the wrath of the believers when he garlanded many idols with slippers which can be called as atrocity. He had no rights to do such a thing in this world of believers. If he was an atheist he must be content with his belief and can speak anything inside his circle but cannot take it to the streets. His name itself had the word Rama and swami[meaning :god]... But he earned lot of fame for his atrocities.... But for now we say,god will look after those ppl when their time comes!!but all we know is their image from outside. Who knows?such extremists could also be a believes inside. But few people will mistake between superstition and faith. But now must understand that all the believes don't indulge in superstition. There is no reliable definition for superstition.Because what you may consider as superstition may sound practical for me and viceversa. The most volatile subject in this world is faith. Just few words against a faith may evoke several generation to spill blood. That's what happening in this world...............



  1. Even if some people do not believe in God, they have to believe in some others like friend, family member or their own ability. It all boils down to belief.

  2. yeah they have to believe in some greater force. at least they have to keep belief in their mother who takes the position of god for every child. no human being can come into this world all his himself.
