Gods of The Atheists

July 17, 2017

Self-identified atheists tend to be aligned with the Democratic Party and with political liberalism.69% of atheists identify as Democrats (or lean in that direction), and a majority (56%) call themselves political liberals (compared with just one-in-ten who say they are conservatives). Atheists overwhelmingly favor same-sex marriage (92%) and legal abortion (87%). In addition, three-quarters (74%) say that government aid to the poor does more good than harm.

We live in a soulless, godless, indifferent world. I don’t have any problems with that. Because I have no soul, I’m just a biomechanical/biochemical machinery that was born, lives, then will eventually die. But I think the effect of removing god and all the apparatuses attached with the concept of believing in god is not necessarily good for society because it creates quasi-religious behaviors, ideas, and entities.
