We're still at zero evidence, much less proof, of any gods past or present. Holy books are not evidence and the feelings of your heart are not proof. I am an Agnostic Atheist. This means I don't know if there are any gods or possibility of gods, but since there is no evidence or proof their are, I reject any CLAIM that they exist and choose not to bother any more with the idea unless forced by members of their fan clubs.
"Without repentance, there is no real progress or improvement. Only repentance leads to the sunlit uplands of a better life.

This marvelous blessing is a cause for true celebration."
