"Any notion which challenges the idea of a benevolent god in turn challenges the notion of an afterlife."
About the Author
I’m a 33 year old husband and father who was raised in a Christian home and is the grandson of a lifelong minister. As a youth, I studied the Bible under my grandfather's guidance, and considered entering the ministry myself. I later came to question Christianity and began studying other religions. After years of study and even reviewing Christianity from a far more critical stance, including study of theology at a collegiate level and review of mythological correlations between all religions, I have come to an apatheistic atheist stance that god doesn't matter. I run an up and coming apatheist Facebook page named God Doesn't Matter and am a strong advocate for loud atheism and apatheism.
If one has the attribute of benevolence then they act with kindness and compassion regardless of whether it is their duty to do so or not.
"I haven't become an atheist, I've simply made a choice to be honest about what I truly feel."
Are emotional reasons for an atheistic perspective something we should evaluate? I for one think so.
