13 Things I Like About Atheists

Every once in awhile I try to come up with a list of things I like about other religions. This time, I’m going to try a non-religion, and hopefully it goes better than the Scientology post. [You can find all the 13 Things posts here.]

As you can imagine, the language and concepts in the following videos might offend. Click at your own risk.

2. Pagan Atheists

They drum with us, they dance with us, they find the earth worthy of reverence the way we do, but they don’t believe in a plethora of ceiling cats. This song is for them.

1. Carl Sagan

Technically I think Sagan is agnostic, but his enthusiasm for science inspires me.

Like many Pagans, I find I have a lot in common with atheists. Militant atheism, which feels the need to attack my non-proselytizing, personal beliefs, irritates the snot out of me, because it is proselytizing and evangelical. However, 9 out 10 times I will find myself siding with atheists on issues that affect me rather than with other religious people.
