Bringing together non-believers …
Atheism is simply the absence of theistic belief. It is not a moral position or a political one; it simply is the refusal to believe in a supernatural dimension.
Our philosophical and ethical stance is humanism which emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over acceptance of dogma or superstition.
We take a system of thought that attaches prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Our beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.
Being an atheist it’s quite freeing. Instead of pushing so hard to do right by an invisible being that seems incredibly narcissistic and bent on making life difficult for everybody, you get to do what feels right to you. You get to live for today, instead of living for a possible afterlife that nobody can even prove is real. You have a freedom of thought that just can’t be achieved within most religions. You become free to consider all avenues of life and make your own sense of things.
