Because I Am An Atheist....

I depend upon myself, my family, my friends....as I suspect do theists, also. Because I am an atheist, I have only myself to blame when my plans go wrong, if I cannot provide for my family, if I become ill from exposure to germs or diseased from poor habits. I do not call upon a supernatural entity to protect me or mine, to save my property from storm damage, to lessen my fears about surgery or death or my children's lives. I do not use a supernatual entity to give me guidance in life, or in troubled times, or to tell me how to be an ethical person. Because I am an atheist, I credit myself for my efforts if they succeed, or I credit the help and support of my family toward those efforts. I do not credit a supernatural entity with such successes, nor with a beautiful sunset, nor with a save birth of a child, nor with that childs safety and health while growing up. I am not lonely...any more than anyone else is ever lonely. I am not sad...any more than anyone else is ever sad. I am not hopeless, period. I am never hopeless...I am Pollyanna, and she never gives up hope.

About: My husband and I have reared three children without religion, because we are atheists. I sing when I am happy, which is most of the time. My worst vice is collecting books and movies.
