Anthony Hopkins as Odin
I don’t make it a practice to call myself an Atheist, any more than I call myself an A-Republican or an A-Female or an A-Hair on my Head person.
I’m not the first to notice or suggest this, but, fact is, we’re ALL ATHEISTS.
Oh yes you are! It’s true! And here’s the SIMPLE TEST (now, don’t be an A-Honest responder):
Yes or No. . .Do You Believe In:
The Sun (Solar god)? __
The Moon (Goddess religion)? __
The Earth (Gaia as god)? __
Ra or Akhenaton (Egyptian gods)? __
Baal (Babylonian god)? __
Brahma, Shiva, Vishnu, Krishna, Kali (Hindu gods)? __
Ahura Mazda (Zoroastrian god)? __
Buddha or Kwan Yin (Buddhist “gods”)? __
The Tao (“Unnameable” Chinese god)? __
Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Athena (Greek gods)? __
Yahweh (Tribal god of ancient Israel)? __
Jesus (Palestinian Jewish god)? __
Mithra (Roman “Mystery” god)? __
Allah (Muslim god)? __
The Goddess (Wiccan)? __
Animal Spirits (Indigenous gods)? __
Tree Nymphs (Druid gods)? __

Nature (Pantheistic god)? __
Any/All of the Millions of Gods proclaimed throughout the History of Religions on Earth? __
Another god (of your choice, imagination or invention)? __
Did you answer “NO” to any of these? Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the TRUTH is:
YOU’RE AN ATHEIST!
It’s ok. Everything’s going to be fine. Stay calm.
Now, let’s just admit that We Are Atheists and then we’ll go on with living the best life we can, ok?
Oh, and if you answered “Yes” to any god on the list, you might ask yourself: Why have I chosen THIS GOD and not THAT GOD?
Oh, and the next time you hear someone bash “Atheists” you might consider standing up and admitting YOU TOO are powerless over your Atheism!
(by the way, in many U.S. States, an “Atheist” cannot run for public office. . .think about that for a while, and say a prayer, if you wish, to the “God” of your Choice. . .or All of the Above. . .or, None of the Above!)
