"Atheism is rather in the lip than in the heart of man..... " - -Sir Francis Bacon
A QUESTION FOR THE ATHEISTS
SoulPancake has become a haven for the atheists. Which is cool. But... This particular brand of SoulPancake Atheist seems to be a know-it-all naysayer evangelist for their belief system. Their sole purpose on the site seems to be to belittle and shame people who believe in a Creator. They're contrarians. They don't seem to have the slightest interest in "EXPLORING LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS" as they have all the answers: There's no God and you're a fool if you believe in one.
Beyond your revulsion and disdain for agnostics and theists, what do you atheists FEEL? Beyond your reactionary distaste for religion and deism, what do you BELIEVE? What, besides arrogance, do you OFFER that's POSITIVE to the WORLD to make it a better place? Do you have any kind of PLAN?
(And please don't just use the phrase 'secular humanism' - what does that MEAN?)
How do you, with uplifting, positive, social change, hope to make the world the paradise it deserves to be? What do you actually DO to make it so?
(and if you rant against Christians and New Agers and Bahai's, you've lost the point of this challenge)
