A Seeker's Thoughts on Atheism
We are all probably atheist to some degree, especially when taking in to consideration all the gods that have gone before us, that is to say all the various cultures and civilizations in mankinds history.

Though from a spiritual standpoint, holding on to atheistic and materialistic concepts for dear life, can have, in my humble opinion, detrimental existential consequences.
For example a hardcore materialist can 'never' discover and co-create the inner existential union that a sage and mystic like The Buddha, or Ramana Maharshi or Meister Eckhart, experiences.

The sage realizes that although a "God" may not exist as is often described in organized religions, there still is this source-being which is the root consciousness, which in turn is the first principle which always is present in all sentient experience.

In other words this source-being or primordial consciousness could be equated to God. Because in truth, there is only consciousness, neither atoms nor quarks can exist without a consciousness to bare witness.
