The difference is that I do not believe in god. I think that the awe, and being a moral, loving and ethical person (I hope!) are because I am human, not because I believe in God. Every human is born with the possibility for good.
Ellis, I think I have said this before: I do not believe in a god out there, either. However, I know GOD as being in and through the here-and-now I know. Perhaps we are saying the same thing. The important point is for us to: Be and live as humane being, not just animal-like humans.
