Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheists Feel Love and Connection

Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day, from my Facebook page. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Atheists feel love, connection, compassion, and empathy as much as anyone else. We don’t think these experiences come from a god or an immaterial soul; but we feel them just as passionately and take them just as seriously as any religious believer. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Or, as They Might Be Giants put it in Science Is Real:

    I like the stories
    About angels, unicorns and elves
    Now I like those stories
    As much as anybody else
    But when I’m seeking knowledge
    Either simple or abstract
    The facts are with science
    The facts are with science

    Not me. The very moment I stopped believing in God I became a humorless, unemotional, steel-jawed metallic-voiced robot.

    All llewelly needs to stop believing in is the Christian god. It’s the image that keeps him/her socially acceptible and in line mentally.
