Leave me something to breathe

"Atheists are routinely asked how people will know not to rape and murder without religion telling them not to do it, especially a religion that backs up the orders with threats of hell. Believers, listen to me carefully when I say this: When you use this argument, you terrify atheists. We hear you saying that the only thing standing between you and Ted Bundy is a flimsy belief in a supernatural being made up by pre-literate people trying to figure out where the rain came from. This is not very reassuring if you’re trying to argue from a position of moral superiority."

10 Myths Many Religious People Hold About Atheists, Debunked  (via ultrapearl)

Another eternal bugbear: being asked how an atheist can possibly think that the world and universe came about by chance, and being told that it’s all so brilliant that there must be a creator behind all this science. That’s fine, you may believe this if you wish, atheists don’t (or shouldn’t, at least) have a problem with theistic beliefs as long as we’re not made to believe them too. But listen: why should I believe that there’s a god behind all this? What’s so wrong with reveling in the chance nature of existence? What is so scary about the idea that this is all one big accident?
