I haven't ever blogged on here, so this is my first attempt at it.

I wrote a few verses about some things that were on my mind, after watching all the things I could find from the Reason Rally, and also after I saw a "cute" religious joke my brother posted on FB, and it made me write this:

They say we hate, but I don’t know.

They call us evil.  Where did love your neighbor go?

They think we believe in nothing.  I believe in much.

I just don’t believe in things that cannot be proven.

I believe I can figure out what is right and wrong.

I believe I can know things that I shouldn’t do.

I believe I should not do things that hurt others.

I believe I should not kill others.

I believe I should respect others.

I believe I should be respected as well.

So, I don’t believe in an imaginary thing.

I don’t believe those who believe

In a particular imaginary being are

More or less moral than

Those who believe in any other one.

I don’t love when people shout at one another

Or try to do harm to one another

Because they are different .

And I don’t want to turn the other cheek

When someone tells me he has the right

To force his beliefs down my throat, and

I am stepping on his freedom of speech

Or religion because I will not let him. 

I am not loving in those ways.

Some of you would call me evil.

If there is a hell, I might be headed there.

I don’t think so.

If the right to think,

And the right to try to understand

How the world works is a sin,

I will be happy to be a sinner.

I want to be compassionate and rational. 

I do believe in many things.

I just don’t believe in unproven gods.

And I really don't hate you.

Can an atheist get insurance against acts of God? That, together with all the times that I hear how we believe in nothing, and that we don't have a moral compass inspired this.
