Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

There doesn't need to be a God for me.

When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn't a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self.

I was never aware so many

I was never aware so many actors I enjoy watching in the movies were atheist. I like both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in a lot of their movies. Of these two quotes I think I like Brad's quote the most. though I have never in my opinion had trouble identifying with myself I see people all the time who let religion embody their existence. they give themselves to their religion and to their gods. I can imagine it can be quite liberating to get away from religion and finally free of thought control be quite liberating to a person once was lost but now has found themselves. To be able to finally be their own judge or morality and what is right or wrong to do things for themselves because it makes them feel good to do so rather than as a way to buy your way into a place religion has convinced you might exist if your good.

It's obvious that Brad and Angelina have done lots of good with adoption and with Katrina victims. It gives what they do a lot more weight if they are doing as atheist because this means they do it because they really want to and that just makes them good people with morals without religion to guide or guilt their actions. the world needs more atheist like them to illustrate that atheist have morals and are good people too. It sad that so many theist don't think it's possible to be good without god.
