Why I am an atheist – Nikolaos Mavrantzas

I do not remember all the steps I took on my way to becoming an atheist, but I am an atheist right now because I accepted, at some point, the fact that the universe does not care. I also liked the freedom from all the madness that was imposed on me, having spent two decades of my life trying to fit the loving god / uncaring universe paradox in my head. And then, I noticed that apart from within the edifice of lies erected by the church, there was no indication that a god existed at all.

    the universe does not care

    And that really bothers some people.

    ‘Tiz funny how the religiously afflicted will look at you in the eye and pronounce that there’s “evidence before your eyes that god exists”. Ask ’em to name the evidence and there’s a crushing silence. “It’s everywhere” they’ll say without actually saying what it is. There’s more evidence for ours being a god-free place than there is for an imagined fantasy being.

    God neither cares nor exists, but I do both.

    Live long and prosper, Νικόλαος!
