ATHEISTS BELIEVE IN GOOD Contest
Listen, we non-believers are routinely and annoyingly accused of lacking wonder, majesty, or even morality because we don't have god(s) in our lives.
This, my friends, is bull%8it.
While we may not accept the existence of god, angels, ghosts, or even Santa (Sorry kids. But hey, doesn’t that make ma & pa so much cooler?!), we DO believe in something much better. Something far better than god; we believe in good! (As our shirt proudly proclaims)
Atheists have such a bad PR reputation that here in America we are often described as “the most hated minority.” If such polls are to be believed, then it’s time for us to take a proactive step and show these haters exactly what atheism is and is not. Atheism is not a belief system. Atheism is living without a belief in god. Simple, right? But doesn't life without god equal rampant prostitution, greed, crime, and debauchery?!
No. It doesn’t. And that’s why The Proud Atheist wants you to help out with our humble contest.
good (adj.) 1. Morally excellent; virtuous; righteous
