“If you want to know about God, you might want to talk to an atheist.” — http://articles.latimes.com/2010/sep/28/nation/la-na-religion-survey-20100928
What a beautiful irony that atheists and agnostics know more about religion than believers do! I find it painful that believers think people leave a faith because they want to be immoral, or because they weren’t “true” believers, or because of some personal vendetta.
In reality, I’m an atheist for one simple reason — there is no evidence that the claims of Christianity (or any other religion for that matter) are true. I actually care about what is true, and I believe that the best path to truth that humanity has ever devised is the use of science and reason.
I’m not an atheist because I don’t understand religion or the bible. As the Pew Forum shows, atheists and agnostics tend to know more about religion that believes themselves!
