I stopped believing in God a long time ago. The last time I prayed was in the 6th grade when I begged God to not take my dog, Max. In his old age he couldn't make it up the stairs anymore and would get stuck about half way up. I would hear him panting, out of breath and worried in the hallway and have to help pull him up the rest of the way so he could sleep next to my bed. I laid in bed crying and weeping and praying to God to just help Max get some strength back into his legs or his hips where the tumors were the worst. Yeah, it was awful.
Now I'm not saying because my dog died I don't believe in God. That's ridiculous. It's a combination of things that I can't get behind. Last night I had as close to a 'religious experience' as I think I can get: Peter Gabriel Live. With little convincing I could see myself joining his cult. Below is one of the greatest Peter Gabriel live performances ever.
