Friendly Atheist is asking for short and sweet answers to common questions asked of atheists. Here are my answers:
Why do you not believe in God? What god?
Where do your morals come from? Who says I'm moral?
What is the meaning of life? Human life is the process of creating meaning.
Is atheism a religion? Yes, if bald is a hair color and not collecting stamps is a hobby.

Should atheists be trying to convince others to stop believing in God? Yes.
Weren’t some of the worst atrocities in the 20th century committed by atheists? Atheism is not a moral philosophy. Theism is a moral philosophy, but one fit only for slaves.
How could billions of people be wrong when it comes to belief in God? The same way that hundreds of millions could be wrong that the Earth was flat.
