That is an interesting way to put it...perhaps also confused as to what you *should* believe in? At one time, not too long ago, it was practically required by law to believe in a "higher power" of some sort (do some Western countries still make you put your hand on a bible in court?)...even today, people who don't believe in, or are uninterested in the idea of gods are held in about the same esteem as criminals in society at large. So society is telling you that you *should* believe in gods (for goodness sake, at least one!) and if you do it right, you will have some kind of contact/communication, and then you are left scratching your head thinking, "Why am I not getting messages in my inbox from the deity?"
