It's pretty much understood that there's no God. So how as a religious person do you handle it?

I cope because there IS a higher power. And there is nothing to handle. You believe; that is why it is called faith. It is in your heart. People who know God do not have to fight about who is right and who is not; you just know.

Though scientifically it is proven that there is no room for hell and heaven in universe,people still believe there is some ubiquitous power that comes to our rescue at onetime or other.You too would have experienced it through your life.Religion still has a hold on people as people believe in this unseen presence.Moreover people consider what we call GOD as a comfort when we are in a deep pit of sorrow.So as long as miseries persuade and people need a silent help religion will thrive and flourish.
