Then for a brief moment I became an anti-theist, until I realized how much of a dick I was being just to make fun of someone’s religious beliefs. So I stopped. Now I am an atheist who tries to empathize with those with religious convictions. At times I’ll go along and pray with someone. Other times I’ll go to church to spend time with a community I love and support. I don’t believe in the spiritual aspect, but the communal aspect is nice.

I find many religious people to be no different than me in terms of intelligence, compassion, and even logic. So why should I believe the anti-religious claptrap new atheists like Sam Harris peddle?

Fun fact I know many religious people who want a secular society. It’s possible.

Have you actually read Sam Harris?
