This is a terrific explanation of Atheism and I agree with everything that is said in this video.
I continue to struggle to come out as an Atheist and find my way in a theist-laden world. My life has always been informed by an atheistic world view, even before I knew what that was. I have no desire to convince others to abandon their personal beliefs or to debate the existence of gods or higher powers, but I do take a very strong, unwavering stance that no one else’s religion should be the basis for influencing or determining my behavior, beliefs, civil liberties, lifestyle or freedoms and I have no interest in being convinced, converted or proselytized to. I’ve had 39 years of that. I believe our country (and world) should be governed by justice, fairness and rational thought and that personal religious or spiritual beliefs have no place in running or determining the laws and rules of our nation or world for everyone or anyone. I also hold people accountable for their words and actions, whether they do it in the name of a god or not.
I’m just saying.
