The joy and truth I feel

I'm an Atheist. And without any belief in a God or Gods, I experience:
  • Joy
  • Love
  • Wonder
  • Hope
  • Happiness
  • Contentment
  • Compassion
  • Sympathy
  • Empathy
  • Strong, impossible-to-ignore compulsions to help others
  • Strong urges to sing and dance and laugh
All without a God or Gods. All without Jesus, Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, Isis or Vishnu.

My life has meaning because I work to make it so. My emotions and values have a genuineness, an honesty, that I never experienced when I tried to believe in the invisible all-knowing Super Friend. Life feels authentic!
