I am an Atheist.

I’m an Atheist.

I’m not scary. Really, I’m very nice.  I don’t like the stigma that I’m a baby killing, mean, sinning, soulless human being.

Or that I am too selfish to make some sort of commitment to a higher being. I’m not too selfish. I believed in that God for a long time in fact.

I like the beach, reading, travelling, and making new friends. I like to help people.

I’m a very normal, happy and loving person.

But in my new found atheism I want people to understand that I’m not a bad person. I’m not scary.  I do have a reason to be good.

In my new found atheism, I don’t want to be afraid to say the A word.  I’m happier than I’ve ever been, yet so many people seem to be afraid to say it.

Well here I am, a happy and adorable atheist hoping to make some new friends.

So, here’s to those normal Atheists out there who aren’t evil people.

  1. I must admit, I feel like I’m missing out a bit. Apparently us atheists are living hedonistic and reckless lifestyles. I feel so dull! Where is my hedonism gosh darn it? Great post!

    • You too? Then I am not the only one? I thought I was being a very poor atheist because I have held a job, raised a family, paid my debts, never cheated or stolen. On top of that, I have never visited one of the hedonism clubs!

      I do admit, I have it pretty good now. I live in a nice condo in a great climate, four blocks from the beach, have maid service six days a week, and am healthy and happy. If that’s my reward for being a bad atheist, I guess I’ll have to live with it. 🙂

  2. Feels good to say it doesn’t it? I never felt more liberated than when I woke up and finally said it. Was a bit scary too. I didn’t have all the resources…computer… that you young ones have today. I was one of those that thought I was the only one. Got my computer and couldn’t get enough of it. You are very fortunate to have a companion to talk with and share your thoughts.
