I totally agree with Jason's comments regarding the article as well as regarding Akong's comment.
I consider myself to be a scientifically-minded skeptic yet at the same time philosophical and spiritual. I do not believe in God, and nor do I consider belief in God to be a necessity of any sort. However I am also in awe of life and its wonders.
Let me say that the belief in God or any sort of creator separate to yourself pales in comparison to the realisation that the only thing which affects your level of happiness is your own perspective of the world, i.e. your own thoughts about the world. If you believe in God then you view the world through such a "lens", lets say. If you do not believe in God then you view the world through a different lens.
You can't always control what happens in life. But you can control how you react to what happens and in knowing that lies true happiness. In my opinion :)
