I’m familiar with pantheism, but I have to admit that I never heard the term “apatheism” before. I just googled it though, and I have to say, it strikes me as a mentality/philosophy that would probably be quite beneficial to my mental heatlh! And I don’t mean that sarcastically. I have OCD, and it sometimes pushes me into thinking too much about topics like God, atheism, and the afterlife. A healthy dose of apathy, even if it’s only temporary, could provide a much-needed break from that. Sounds like something I’d have to sort of train myself to do, but it’s certainly worth thinking about.

With that in mind, thanks for the comment and friendly advice, AC! And for taking the time to read the piece! :)
