Thinking Critically

To live without god beliefs is intellectually stimulating.

Atheism accepts the natural world as all there is. To live without god beliefs is intellectually stimulating. To find one’s own purpose and be responsible for one’s own life is exciting. To be free of the imagined surveillance of good and evil spirits is liberating. To seek a peaceful world through work and friendship and civic action is life-affirming.

— Marie Alena Castle, March 1994

Happy Hug An Atheist Day!

It’s the fourth anniversary of Hug An Atheist Day, so this is just a reminder:

It doesn’t matter what your worldview is, practice a little tolerance. Find your nearest Atheist, Absurdist, Agnostic, Anti-Religionist, Antitheist, Apatheist, Deist, Dystheist, Existentialist, Freethinker, Gropaga, Ignostic, Mahayana, Marxist, Misotheist, Naturalistic Pantheist, Nihilist, Nontheist, Pastafarian, Secular Humanist, Skeptic, Spagnostic, Structuralist, Buddhist, Zenbuddhist, or anyone else who doubts the existence of a god, and  & give him/her the biggest hug ever!

Soooo, to you, dear reader who favor me with your visit, consider yourself warmly hugged.

My super-special-huge-atheistic-hug is for my fiancé Joshua McGee. I love you, Joshie. ♥

The Necessity of Atheism

If he is infinitely good, what reason should we have to fear him?
If he is infinitely wise, why should we have doubts concerning our future?
If he knows all, why warn him of our needs and fatigue him with our prayers?
If he is everywhere, why erect temples to him?
If he is just, why fear that he will punish the creatures that he has filled with weaknesses?
If grace does everything for them, what reason would he have for recompensing them?
If he is all-powerful, how offend him, how resist him?
If he is reasonable, how can he be angry at the blind, to whom he has given the liberty of being unreasonable?
If he is immovable, by what right do we pretend to make him change his decrees?
If he is inconceivable, why occupy ourselves with him?
If he has spoken, why is the universe not convinced?
If the knowledge of a God is the most necessary, why is it not the most evident and the clearest?

— Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Necessity of Atheism
