Hopefully I will come back to it reenergized, but four years in Im feeling a little drained by it.

See you soon?

Help this blog out!

Hey guys, Im trying really hard to keep up with this blog and keep it on track, but I’m losing a bit of the passion for it…

Please, help keep the positive secularism going by submitting posts, sending asks, sending in messages/asks with suggestions on topics or post ideas etc.

They can be texts, graphics, images, whatever! Positive Atheism should thrive here!

Do not underestimate yourself and all you can do

You are not so weak as to needing strength from a devine being.

You are already strong enough.

You make the choice to be strong and to get stronger.

You put the work in

You.

“In God we trust” Is being promoted or forced onto public school walls.

8 states are supporting the marginalization of non-theist, polytheist, and monotheists who believe in a goddess rather than a god.

“These godly postings exclude and alienate the one-in-five students in our public schools who do not believe in god. And they’re meant to.These laws are not about patriotism, they’re about turning believers into insiders, and nonbelievers into outsiders. There’s nothing patriotic in undermining our nation’s secular Constitution.

Why do you think you can be good without god?

A. I’m a good person currently and I don’t believe a god exists.

B. I don’t believe that a god controls whether or not we have the strength to do good things and if one does then theyre clearly failing a lot of individuals.

C. I have yet to see a religion that doesnt support illogically violent punishments or “morals” that appear cruel, nor have I seen a religion that doesn’t contradict itself.

D. There are thousands of secular individuals who are currently good people.

E. I know for a fact that we has human beings have the capability to evolve and improve our understandings of whats right and wrong(and it is shown consistently through our history and progression). We have the capability to expand our perspectives and listen to others speak the harms that have been done to them and to correct/prevent those harms in the future.

F. There are other moral codes/guides that dont involve theism and are open to corrections and amendments unlike a holy script that is not open to amendent or was written hundreds or thousands of years ago and then translated/written in different versions an unimaginable number of times.

I am being the best person I can be, and I dont think a god is apart of that. I think it would be personally foolish of me to pick one specific version of one specific religion and hope its the right one and proceed to follow it without question as many demand.

I believe it would be irresponsible to allow myself to think that is going to make me a better person.

Im not the best I can be yet, but I work towards it everyday. Every opportunity to do some good I take. If someone speaks about their experiences I listen. I read. I allow myself to learn and leave my veiws open to change.

You are strong!

You are smart.

You can better yourself.

You dont need power or meaning from a different being to be amazing!

You already are amazing. You made it to today and it doesnt matter if you had a boarderline perfect life or a Hollywood tragedy, we all know life is full of challenges. And yet here you are, in one piece(more or less).

If youre reading this then you’ve already accomplished something, youre still here.

You got this. You.

So you don't believe in a creator? Read R…

So you don't believe in a creator? Read Revelation 4:11. You can look around and see that God made everything….even you.

Part of being atheist is disregarding the bible and viewing it as fiction. SOooooooo….

I do not hate your “god”.

Chances are, I am not even aware of your specific god.

Even if you’re a ‘Christian’ chances are the “god” you believe in and the god your ‘Christian’ neighbor believes in is not the same.

Yes, I know about a lot of different religions and a lot of different gods(goddesses as well), but with so many different religions, sects, interpretations, and individualized understandings~ its just not possible for me to be aware of every god that every theist believes in.

So no, I don’t hate your god. I’m not angry at your god.

I might be angry at the way some people use the concept of theism in order to do/justify harm.

I might be upset at the way certain churches systematically oppress large groups of people(from gender to race to beliefs).

But no, I have never hated your god.

I have never had A N Y feelings about any god, and I never will.

I simply don’t think they exists (no, not even yours).

Its hard to have emotions towards something you think is nonexistant…

In my view, nothing is “meant to be” a certain way.

Things shape themselves, each other, and the world as they develop. Often the world follows predictable patterns, but sometimes it doesn’t.

So, don’t worry about how being nonbinary is contrary to this theory or that system.

You are a marvelous being creating your own place in an endlessly wild, and growing universe.

Believing in and worshipping a “god” is not the same thing…

You can believe something exists without dedicating your life to it or following its words.

When I say that “even if a god existed I would not worship it” I am not saying that if you provided evidence of a god that I would still deny its existance~ Im saying that an existing god doesnt recieve my dedication or submission to its declarations (if in this hypothetical situation im given the choice) simply for existing.

If someone provided evidence I would happily accept that a god exists.

But I wont worship that god or follow a specific religion just because a god exists.

Further more, no one has provided that evidence.
