joreth: (Dobert Demons of Stupidity)
Today's Atheist Meme of the Day:

Atheism is not arrogant. It's no more arrogant to say, "I really think I'm right that there is no God" than to say, "I really think I'm right that there is a God." In fact, atheism is often a humbling philosophy, one that sees humanity as a very small, brief facet in the vastness of space and time. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

I never quite understood how "I KNOW the answer, and the answer is that God created everything FOR US" was humble and "I'm not sure what the answer is, but we're working on it, and so far it looks like I'm pretty inconsequential" was arrogant.

I'm arrogant about a lot of things, but I just don't see how atheism is one of them.
