Atheists Belive In Nothing! Really? No!


NotTrueWhy do religious people so often think atheists believe in nothing and stand for nothing? They could not be more wrong.

I stand for believing only things that are true.

I stand for equal rights, equal opportunities and non-discrimination on grounds of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, age, disability and more.

I believe in treating my fellow humans with respect and preserving their dignity. I like to help people where I reasonably can and I dislike harming people. I even try hard to avoid inconveniencing people–so you won’t find me playing loud music that disturbs my neighbors or pushing to the front of queues. But you will see me stopping in my car to let other cars pass when traffic is heavy.

I believe it is important to be tolerant of differences in lifestyles, dress codes and so on, so long as no-one is being harmed.

I believe we should take care of the planet and to pass it on to our children in the best possible and sustainable condition.

Rather than dominion over animals as the Bible teaches, I believe we have a duty of care for animals.

I stand for rational inquiry and an evidence-based approach to medicine, education and government policy-making–in fact for everything. I could go on…

Rather than standing for nothing, I may stand for more than most religious people. All atheists are different but, I think many of them share my values.

I wish religious people did.

    I stand for those things as well, but I never knew I had those things in common with atheists, not by the kind of contributions they make to this blog or to the Facebook page.
    And for me, it’s tolerable if atheists don’t stand for these things, at least they don’t go around pretending like most Christians.
