Your beliefs don't make you a better person,

Originally I was born into it.

If we knew our power, we would see what everybody sees, that we're rich already!"

I chose atheism because I prefer using logic and the fact that there is no proof of a god.

there is a field...

Finding your avatar of the heavens and your claims of "no god" slightly ironic.

I prefer logic too, and reason, contemplating and science. Yet i have full faith in a higher power.

For me his signs are literally everywhere. For you to see nothing.. i can only assume it comes down to guidance.

"My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never
miss me and that what misses me was never meant for me"

~Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (ra)

Show me proof that there isn't a God, then you can use the word logic in your statement. Other than that I respect your opinion if that is what suits you.
