10. I pray to no one and haven't in at least 50 years
Edited on Fri Apr-29-11 09:36 AM by madokie
The last time I prayed was during the missile crisis's in '61 when I was heavily being taught that there was a hell and a heaven. As I look back I see that was when I realized that I don't believe in this any more. Been a non-believer every since and happy with that decision I made years ago. Now I'm in my later years facing death and all I can think of is finishing the projects I've started so my wife won't have to worry with them after I'm gone but I don't worry about my soul or any of that. I'm like the bug that hits the windshield, when I die I'll be dead. No heaven or hell for this ole boy. My plan is for them to plant a tree where they put the ashes left over just in case I come back as a spirit and need a place to call home, a limb to sit on, you know just a place to be.

Rec'd to no avail, still at 0.
What are they afraid of?
