Religion definitely no longer provides all the answers and its predictions have on several occasions been disproved in light of new discoveries being made in science. The most commonly cited one would be that all celestial bodies in the solar system orbited around the Earth. Galileo Galilee was placed under house arrest for having refuted this claim on the basis of sound scientific principles. In the past, religion provided a way of looking at the world and consequentially answers about questions about the universe. All too often, it could be seen that religious leaders had tried unifying the entire universe by conferring all phenomenon a deeper religious meaning. For example, if floods happened, it was probably because the Sea God was upset and therefore had to be appeased by means of offerings or prayers. This is seen to a significantly lesser extent in today's context where much of our lives tend to be secular regardless of how spiritual we are. For another thing, religion no longer provides answers and Greek mythology whilst largely studied is no longer subscribed to as a religion. However, while circumstances have changed, religion still serves its original purposes; it gives man the confidence that his existence has a deeper meaning, that he has a certain amount of influence on his future and a serves as a source of strength. With these purposes in mind, we shall examine how the lack of religious belief affects the thinking and lifestyle of an atheist.
