What Can Atheism Offer Me?

Someone asked this question on Ask The Atheists.  This was my answer:

  • A skeptical viewpoint that will make you much less susceptible to scams and rip-offs. You won’t be as likely to risk your health on alternative medicines, fall prey to con-men, swallow the latest pseudoscience scare, etc.
  • Time. The religious waste an enormous amount of time on church and church related nonsense. You get all that time back and can use it however you like.
  • Money. See: Time.
  • Laughter. Many faiths have no sense of humor, especially about themselves. As an atheist you can enjoy the comedy of artists like Mr. Deity, Pat Condell and Tim Minchin.
  • The Pursuit of The Answer to Life’s Biggest Question: Why Are We Here? Godders tell us we’re here to worship the big sky daddy. How boring. As an atheist, you get to decide your purpose (or purposes) in life, and you’re free to change your mind anytime.
  • And best of all, bacon. Tasty, tasty bacon.
