    I can't say that the mere fact of being an atheist is in itself a "satisfaction." However, I suppose that the freedom to follow the evidence when trying to learn new things, rather than having some roads cut off for fear of being out of alignment with some dogma or other.

    Look at any of the multitude of threads on Evolution, for example. Or try to really examine the true history of any of the religions on this planet, without being stymied by the need to accept some myth or other as literal truth, evidence be damned.

    The Bright Side of Atheism.

    The bright side of Atheism
    I believe the bright side is about self-determination and free will...
    religion can be detrimental and harm the psychological growth of a person, often unwillingly.

    Gosh, I loved Sunday mornings as an atheist kid. My Dad took it off as a family day. Seems we always did something entertaining, like fishing, drives, pick-up baseball or hockey. Likely my favorite half-day of the week.

    The stricter the religion, the less one's brain functions.

    Ha. Cute.

    I wouldn't know any good or bad things of not believing in gods since I never believed them in order to know the difference.

    However, I can speak of religion in general. I'm a free bird. I like some structure but I found I have more connection and freedom when that structure is an option of practice not a necessity. Maybe in the future when I have a strong connection with family, I may go to that next step with a structured religion but for now, I just like being free.

    I have a boat load of things I need to improve on. Don't know where to start on that.

    When you ask someone 'What do YOU think?' and all you get is some quote, that says a lot.
