Here's What Atheist Lack...

Respect.

People love to say that they respect everyone's religion. But, what about the lack of religion?

What if you believe that you are responsible for your own actions? There is no higher power. You are it.

That's Atheism.

Why does this not deserve more respect than blaming an unknown God for your successes or failings?

You are responsible for who you are. You own your destiny. You are in control.

That is the Atheist belief.

Everyone is accountable for themselves. No excuses.

There are over 2000 different religions observed on earth. None of them are based upon facts.

Only Atheism is based upon empirical knowledge.

You can be your own God.

Just believe in yourself.



I know this is going to be unpopular but I am friends with and I understand many Trump supporters

I know this is going to be unpopular but I am friends with and I understand many Trump supporters - The Deplorables.

You think that they must be crazy to support Trump after everything we have heard. And, that is the thing. They have not heard the latest news. They pay little attention to the news and what is happening in the world because they are spending time with their kids, tending cattle or deployed in the military. What they know is that they do not like the direction the country is going.

These people are not bigots or sexist pigs. They are good solid Americans.

And, they are coming around. There is a lot they did not like about Trump and about Hillary. They didn't vote for Trump or against Hillary. They voted to change the status quo.

They are coming around.

Right now we have the opportunity to change a lot minds. We need to stop excluding people and putting them down. We need to open up and welcome everyone interested in change for the better.

Believe it or not, issue by issue, they agree with Democrats. They just don't like what the label has become. This is our fight to win.
