The New “New Atheists”

October 27, 2009 leahdanielle

A friend of my husband’s posted an article recently and I happened upon it.  There were so many interesting things about this article.  These Atheists 3.0 are saying that while they still don’t believe in God, they do believe that religion is beneficial to society.  I tend to hold the opposite view, since even as of late religion has done a number on my self-esteem and world-perspective (making me cling to the existence of God and the saving power of Christ but reject the institution of religion for the most part).  But I absolutely loved what the article had to say about atheists meeting believers in the middle and working together to love on people.

This quote is my fave: “When our goal is erasing religion, rather than embracing human beings, we all lose.”

I feel like this is what I’ve been trying to express in my rants and raves recently, only from the Christian perspective: When our goal is to promote (insert literally anything here – political views, religion, etc.), rather than embracing human beings, we all lose.

How incredible that both atheists and christians alike are starting to realize how important people are.  I hope this attitude spreads like wildfire.  Here is the article:
