    I am a practising Roman Catholic and have dabbled in the dark arts agnosticism for a while but returned to my faith as through much rational thought I felt it best to make peace with my faith in an angry, nihilistic, self loathing, narcissistic and aggressively secular society for all I saw in the alternative frame of thought was shallow minded despair devoid of value and true fulfilment. As a curious by stander in recent times I have witnessed many changes in attitudes and beliefs in society all of which are not good. As a simple observation I have noted that while secularization has increased so has the rise in incidents of substance abuse, self harm, murder, serious assault, theft and sadly suicide, coincidence?. As the purveyors of “logic and reason” I am curious as to know what the atheist community can do to fill the void if faith goes? What do the atheist community wish to replace faith, hope, love, forgiveness and self control with if they subvert the Christian faith? Will the atheist community be able to uphold a value of self worth over net worth if the Christian faith is subverted?. As an observer of all faiths not just my own I am curious as to the core elements of their values and what substance they can retain. May you find fulfillment in your endeavours while retaining love for your fellow man but also remember as in the words of WB Yeats, “tread softly, for you tread on my dreams”
