Everyday Atheism

Everyone go say hello to Newbie.

Here’s what he says on his first post:

I don’t worship satan, or sacrifice newborns, or kick puppies. I don’t go around hurting or killing people just because I don’t believe in a God. I believe in kindness, and my natural compassion and empathy leads me to treat people the way I would like to be treated. When you think about it, religions teach that God, and the beliefs of the religion are ultimately more important than people. I think people are more important than any set of beliefs or creeds, whether they are secular or religious. People have to come before words.

I’ve never understood why some people think atheists worship Satan… but kudos to Newbie for setting those people straight.

    In many sects of xianity you either worship God or else you MUST worship satan because god=good and satan=bad and if you don’t worship the xian god then you must worship the opposite. It’s has to be one or the other in their teachings. The muslims and Jains and Buddhists really just worship satan in their mindset.
