What Do I Believe?

Many times when I tell people that I am an atheist, the question they ask is “So what do you believe?”

I believe in the scientific method

I believe in what I can see

I believe in the big bang and evolution

I believe that in our vast universe, god would have bigger things to worry about than us

I believe that most people are inherently good

I believe that religion can make a good person do bad things

I believe that religion has slowed human progress throughout history

I believe that all people should be treated equally as we are all the same species

I believe that all children should receive a quality education

I believe that no person should ever be without food and shelter when we have plenty for everyone

I believe it is part of the human condition to seek meaning in life

I believe this search for meaning leads many people to religion

I believe that I have hit the biological jackpot by existing

I believe that this life is my only chance to get things right so I better make the most of it

That’s what I believe, what do you believe?
