I really do miss going to church sometimes. I don't give two hoots about the ideologies of it all anymore, but I miss the sense of community I felt when I was a church-goer. I still have friends from my old church that I still talk to, but it isn't the same. When I left, it felt like something in those relationships changed for the worst.

There are churches of several denominations that I sometimes attend as an atheist, and am perfectly welcomed into the community. If you really miss going to services, I imagine there's a church somewhere near you that would be glad to have you attend on your terms.

The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication. -- Philip K. Dick

I miss the art and architecture. I could never pay attention to the words when I went to mass with my family (unless it was strictly a story, as opposed to a prayer or real preaching or whatnot), I was always too distracted by the stained glass windows and the awesome architecture.

I have found plenty of other communities to involve myself with, so no I don't really miss it.

The only thing I really miss are the friends who demonized me. Most were accepting, but there's a few that have never spoken to me since, presumably out of spite.

I've never been a big community guy, and my family rarely went to church.

I miss it dearly, but not enough for me to reject reason.

The god of the bible has more reason than anything else. Do his will and you will get into heaven. Just like capitalism, except a lot less suffering and everybody gets rewards.
