Atheist Blogroll

I am pleased to announce that Skeptical Eye has been added to the Atheist Blogroll. Thanks go to Mojoey for adding this blog and for providing this service to atheist and agnostic bloggers everywhere. Atheists are and will likely remain a small minority for the foreseeable future, but the internet, and things like blogrolls, allow our point of view to gain wider publicity. In a world saturated by religious propaganda we can only hope that those who do not share our nonbelief will at least learn that we are not monsters, and that we are just like them, only without faith in the unknowable.

Atheist means to me simply without belief in a god, and in the most narrow sense, without belief in the god of classical theism, i.e., an all-powerful, all-good, all-knowing being that created and sustains our universe. I tried to cling to a belief in that god, even after leaving Christianity, but the facts of reality just didn't square with the existence of such a god. I wish it could be otherwise, but wishing doesn't make it so. I claim no knowledge of any gods that do not meet the definition above, they may exist, but most likely do not, and I cannot force myself to believe in the incoherent (in the case of classical theism) or that for which the evidence is simply lacking (in the case of other sorts of deities that do not possess all of the attributes of the God of western religions). If compelling evidence for a god is ever discovered, I want you all to know that I will be the first to remove my blog from the Atheist Blogroll, but I am not expecting such evidence anytime soon. Until that day, the only truly rational position is non-belief in such things. Don't ever let anyone bamboozle you into thinking otherwise.
