In Your Own Words

I regularly watch videos from TheThinkingAtheist on YouTube. These 2 videos really spoke to me. I can relate to 99.9% of what these people are saying. It's nice to know that there are groups of people out there who think and rationalize the same way that I do. I'm strongly considering doing something like this, using the words of some of my dearest friends. I think it's really important for our voices to be heard on this matter. I'm not proposing that we be obnoxious god-haters, but I've only recently come out of the atheist closet, and already I've been told that it would be in my best interest to keep my opinions to myself. While I'm surrounded by people who have no issues with telling me that they are praying for this and that, and that God has blessed them in this area of their lives, and facebook statuses proclaiming the glory of God, and the miracles of faith....I've been told not to use my voice of reason. That's just wrong.

  1. I'm glad you posted these videos Sarah. It's kind of funny to hear your own story through the voice of others. I particularily like the comment regarding morality. I choose to do good not because there is a reward in it for me. I choose to do good simply for the sake of goodness. The word atheist does not define me as a person, it merely refers to my lack of belief in deities and the supernatural; I am a humanist, naturalist, enviromentalist, husband, father, volunteer, musician, etc.
    These words help define who I am.
    Great videos, I think that I will do something similar in the near future.
