Re: Americans Losing their Religion

The bias and tone of this report was very unfortunate. It paints a picture of humanists, agnostics and atheists as people who are aimless, immoral and evil. The truth is that an increasing number of people are finding out that they can live meaningful lives with out religion. Our values are simply not based on religious text. We contribute to society as a way to make sure our lives count for something. We don’t have the fall back of hoping to get to heaven. We have to do our good deeds now in the hope that our life will be meaningful. That is what gives us purpose. I strongly urge people to read “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins. It helped me realize that I don’t have to feel guilty for not being religious after trying to force myself to be for many, many years. For those of you who are religious that’s fine. But please try to see a new side to those of us who are not.
