... churches have been known to do good things. And yet some people (myself among them) believe that the idea of God is a false and dangerous illusion. And there's also the idea that lying is immoral. For those of us who are incapable, as I am, of treating the Church as a social club, what to do? Yet one wonders if there were atheists in Tahrir Square (a foxhole...) If so, how was it managed?

It doesn't have to be faith in God. Some physicists will tell you that God is natural law.

“Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?”

Robert Browning

Each of us has to be willing to make a leap of faith. It is the only thing than can overcome despair.
