    Interesting.

    Though my POV on the "whys" of things or the purpose of them, as an atheist myself is, "Because it does... why does it matter why?"

    I've heard sometimes that people believe in a higher being because they can't deal with not knowing the answers to things and "god did it," is a pretty easy way to answer all "but how/why?" etc questions... but I just feel no great need to know. I honestly couldn't care less why the sun does what it does, or what its purpose is, or any such thing.

    I wonder if any other atheists are simply happy with not finding answers for every tiny thing... or if I'm a freak there. lol.

    Haha...you are not alone, my dp is a very 'CBFd' / 'just because' type of atheist.
