Atheists, the lack of evidence for the hypothetical gods of the world Is damning to the claim to their existence.
Fictitious gods may not hold any sway over us, but atheism is not enough.
Atheism does not denote higher intelligence, it doesn’t make us smarter than theists.
What we need, what makes the case against religion far stronger than atheism is Humanism; the belief that good morals and values are not unique to religion.
We must show the better nature of Humanism by defeating the expectations of theists of atheists; that we are all angry and attack religion because we allegedly hate their gods. We must temper our own emotions, and encourage the conversation through respectful and patient dialogue. Even and especially those of us who were directly harmed by religious beliefs and practices.
