It took me decades to transition from: Mom/Dad, this stuff does not make sense to Hello, World; I’m a humanist atheist.
Nick Fish is more diplomatic than I am. I was happy I finally caught up to him for an interview.
Adults who lie to you might have good intentions, but that does not matter. It’s the fact that they’re invested in lies that matter. We have evolutionary defects that prove, beyond much doubt, that gods are all imaginary.
Are we doomed based on that fact? Not necessarily.
We humanist atheists do need an aggressive but kind strategy, however. This species must do better. The alternative is annihilation due to hubris.
