Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheists Are Happy

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

Atheists are happy and fulfilled, as much as anyone else. Many of us seem cranky in arguments on the Internet — but that’s because we’re in arguments on the Internet. In the rest of our lives, we have as much satisfaction, contentment, and joy as anybody. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Probably more-so. We have no need of fearing an imaginary sky-daddy or worrying about burning in a fictional eternal hell.

    I actually explained it on my Blog yesterday:
    The internet and hope
    The internet is basically humanity’s most honest face. This is why there is porn of it, no exceptions. Part of understanding the internet however is this: It is easier to write about stuff that bugs you.

    I would say we aren’t really so much happier, as we tend towards the more active emotions. We laugh more than we cry because you can do more with laughter in your voice than tears in your eyes.

    I just read your article asking why people are still Catholics. I could not agree more!! Rational thought must win out over superstition. More damage has been done by religion than anything else. I am so sick of these know nothings trying to elect officials who would deny everyone their personal freedoms. If only they would all congregate in one area and we could isolate them from the rest of us!!
