116. Absolutely!
Whether there is a force beyond us is neither here nor there. We are storytellers and it's evolutionarily helpful. I find this fascinating. I believe in a higher power as I understand it and I've had religious "experiences" that go beyond mere belief. If that is because a bit of tissue in my brain got tickled, so be it. Those experiences have been the bedrock of my life and I don't really care how they came to be, it's more what I've chosen to do with those experiences that makes the woman.

I have no problem with people who are athiest. I do wonder about those who are absolutely sure one way or the other and who will not stand any questioning of their absolutism. Life is too fluid for such absolutism, no matter the ilk.
