Why is it that Atheists come to “Religion and Spirituality?”?
Question by wendalore: Why is it that Atheists come to “Religion and Spirituality?”?
Since they do not believe in them? (another millionth question – I think I’ve seen this one.)
Is it to feel better than religious people by dint of their superiority?
Is it to spread the light of wisdom to what they see as the primitive “heathen”… as if they were like the missionaries in the olden days come to spread Christianity to the Pagans?
Is it because they are so much happier than Theists, and they want everyone to be happy like they are?
I got a LOT of answers to my question about Atheism being a kind of faith. The dedication of the Atheist, whom, day or night, can be found to tell Theists they are wrong does smack of the fervor of the Evangelical missionary. So I guess on an emotional level, it still seems like a kind of faith to me.
But I digress: Speaking as honestly as you can, looking deep inside, why do you, Atheist person, come here to R&S?

Environmental factors determine one’s beliefs. This is why the Truth with a capital T is timeless. Note how ‘timeless’ doesn’t take a capital T… this is because our universe is one atom of another universe.
