It is understandable if a person wants to identify themself by their belief in a religion, a church, a political party, an ethnicity…; but it absolutely makes no sense that you would feel the need to identify yourself by what you do not believe.
I do not believe in vampires, werewolves, zombies, big foot, fairies, alien autopsies, ghost or things that go bump in the night.
I do not believe that the world is flat or that the sun rotes around the earth.
I do not believe that dinosaurs and humans existed at the same time
I do not believe that a snake whispered to a woman who ate an apple which brought sin into the world.
I do not believe that a six-hundred-year-old man and his hundred-year-old sons built a boat and sailed on a flood that mixed salt water and fresh water, carrying two of every animal on earth, and that upon landing a kangaroo hopped twelve thousand miles across three continents to go home to Australia.
I do not believe that a child was born to a virgin.
I do not believe that statues bleed.
I do not believe in devils and demons and angles and gods, or in a physical heaven or hell.
I do not believe a man god walked on water, or that a brutal human sacrifice was performed to ‘take away the sins of the world.’
The name Atheist is a religious term that supposes the legitimizing of religious beliefs and proposes to delegitimize anyone that doesn’t accept the fairy tale.
If you feel the need to attach a name to me to identify what I don’t believe in, me you might just call me sane – I can live with that.
