You can feel divinity, breath it, get absolutely spiritually high on it, even if its something as mundane as a beautiful moment in a walk in the woods or seeing someone do something that just gives you hope for the human race on your way home on the subway. I got the greatest release when I realised that divinity doesn't need to be anything more than that and I could let go of my feelings of guilt for needing to believe in *something*.

On a side note, I might be better classified as an agnostic because, while I personally don't believe in deities or see any evidence of them, I also see no evidence that they don't exist and consequently I operate on the "couldn't care less" principle.

Would non-theistic be a better way to describe that, rather than agnostic? Agnosticism has always, to me, denoted some sort of either belief, or uncertainty of deity, rather than apathy towards it.
