As a blog that very much offers a wide variety of fodder on a wide variety of topics, atheism is not the primary focus around here. However, as a devout atheist myself, this blog will ocassionally touch on the topic from time to time and I’m proud to join forces with this community.
Here’s a little something I found on the American Atheists web site that is beautifully written and sums up my feelings on the matter quite nicely:
An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An Atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An Atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment.
The ‘progressive Christian’ (sic):
I wanna join. >_>
I’ll vouch for you. That’ll help, I’m sure. :p
Beautifully written indeed!
