When Atheists Believe in Ghosts

It’s true. Sometimes we atheists believe in ghosts.

I don’t know who is right, but I know why it would be more difficult to let go of ghosts than letting go of God.

It is because death is welcome the moment we are done.

Done. Who is ever truly done?  Few, few people.

What is the ghost world? Where you go to finish.

I fear my own death because I don’t feel done. I fear the death of others in my life because I don’t feel my time with them is done. And this is a fertile ground for ghosts. My friends can be ghosts so I have a little extra time to say goodbye. I can be a ghost so I can write those last few pages of my screenplay.

Letting go of God is easy. Letting go of ghosts is the real challenge.
