Atheism is the only logical explanation and it can completely mess with you. It takes away any hopes of an afterlife. It removes the possibility that people who are no longer alive are watching over you. It means that your prayers won’t be (and never have been) answered.
But once you get over that initial shock, you’ll find out the responsibility for making your life wonderful is entirely in your hands, and that’s a very powerful realization.
