So you may or may not have noticed/realised that I am on the cusp between agnosticism and atheism. Leaning towards atheism due to my anti-religious upbringing, and my general liking for logic. I don't get how people can buy into the idea of god when it is handed to them by people in power as a reason for things.
Pat Condell is a fantastic atheist writer/video maker who's videos I love.
One of the things I find interesting is that people seem to say that atheism is 'just another religion', and that if you don't believe, then why do you have to watch videos about how much you don't believe? and so on. I don't know. I think the reason I watch people like him is because there has to be a counter to the preachers of one faith or another. A spokesman for sense and logic. Someone who notices and counters the encroachment of these faiths into the normal every day life of unbelievers.
I don't know why I felt like putting something on this blog about it. I think all the talk of 'DARWIN IS ON YOUR MONEY?!' made me realise how proud I am that I do come from somewhere that we don't have religion sneaked into every thing in some way or another. Where god isn't bandied about on our money and in speeches and by governing officials the whole time.
I don't know. But yeah... I don't get religion, I don't think I ever will.
