A Different Perspective: We’re Not That Different

cooperation

This is the concluding of Brittany’s guest posts in the Different Perspective series. Neither side has proof that the other side is incorrect; it comes down to belief. I believe modern science provides a convincing and simple explanation of extraordinary beliefs; this is more convincing to me than assuming there is some higher power, and […]

A Different Perspective: Religion Is Not Bad

This is part of the continuing guest posts by Brittany in the Different Perspective series. I would argue that religions are desirable, in addition to rather inevitable and predictable. The idea of a divine protector gives comfort to people.  Being optimistic about the future is good.  People who are optimistic are more likely to survive […]

This is the first in the guests posts by Brittany in the Different Perspective series. Hi, I’m Brittany, and I’m an atheist. Sometimes, I really feel like my personal beliefs are a character flaw rather than an important freedom.  Maybe “failed Christian” would be a more appropriate moniker, because although I am an atheist now, […]

A Different Perspective: A Series by an Atheist

It’s Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, and in my world, that means it’s time for a different perspective. For me, Lent feels like it started at the beginning of the year.  You might say I feel pretty ready for Lent. But I know I’m not.  I never am, no matter what life has in […]
