For the last 50 years I have been clear that there is no God. I still do not believe in God. I have no need to believe in God. I do not feel a 'gap' in my life as a result of my atheism. On the contrary I feel able to think about life in general and evolution without the encumberance of needing to believe in God. I don't have to waste my time worshipping a non-existent diety and I don't need to belong to a religious community of any sort. It is true personal freedom.
