Atheism is not arrogance, no. Atheism is not a cop out way of dealing with the world. Atheism isn’t something people proclaim to themselves without a purpose. Atheism is scary. Atheism is reality. Reality is scary and something people are way too feared by to go near. So what is it that they do? They pray. They pray to a god of some sort hoping that everything will be okay. Funny isn’t it, that each day problems just get worse, and worse, and worse. But that has nothing to do with some imaginary figure in the sky, that has to do with pure error, human error. Problems and solutions, the good and the evil, all derive from human mistake and human progress. As an atheist I believe. I believe in people. I believe in the power of love and care and kindness. I believe in the power behind a smile, but I refuse to believe and worship and pray to something of some sort that is exactly something of some sort that will only ever be something of some sort.
