I wondered if other theists here (where are you?) could relate to that.

I'm not a theist, at all. Perhaps uncharacteristically, though, I respect that.

Yep, whatever gets you through the day. As long as it's not causing him or anyone else harm, I'm glad fastonez has found something that helps him. However, I have found that I am a stronger and happier person who is much better able to handle the ups and downs of life since I became an atheist.
