SS AKAL JI . ATHEIST JI. You do not have to believe in God it will not make ANY difference TO billions of people living on this earth. Let us put this way that there are so many people who do not believe in GOD but they are very truthful to themselves and others and believe in truth and facts of life then you are the staunch believer in GOD because GOD is truth and truth is GOD. Then that is your religion which we call them a Sikh,follower of TRUTH BUT ONLY TRUTH and follower of GURU NANAK DEV .. If you do not believe in truth either then you can find suitable title for yourself to live with your conscious. Just for your information there is no other rituals you have to folllow in SKHISMS.
