I haven't figured out what that means in the grand scheme of things, whether it's just a carry-over from when I was younger, or if it's something more meaningful.

I should add that I do not think on it all that much. But when you have brain power like mine, even a little bit of time spent thinking of a subject yields insanely high results.

Or, you could be hedging your bets.

(I pray still, I'm a hypocrite)

ETA - Best = bets.

One of the songs I've written is about my general skepticism with religion and all. I think it's an interesting songwriting subject. Other than that, not much thought.

I'd like to think that if there is a higher power, he/she would appreciate, perhaps find humour in the "oh shit" thing.

Ideologically, I'm more agnostic. I'd identify with a religion if any of them matched my beliefs.
yeah, that sounds like me. not that anyone asked.
