"Atheism offers nothing to me, it never has, and it never will.
It doesn’t make me feel good, or comfort me.
It’s not there for me when I’m sick or ill.
It can’t intervene in my times of need.
It won’t protect me from hate and lies.
It doesn’t care if I fail or succeed.
It won’t wipe the tears from my eyes.
It does nothing when I’ve go nowhere to run.
It won’t give me wise words or advice.
It has no teachings for me to learn.
It can’t show me what’s bad or not.
It’s never inspired or incited anyone.
It won’t help me fulfill all my goals.
It won’t tell me to stop when I’m having fun.
It’s never saved one single soul.
It doesn’t take credit for anything I achieve.
It won’t make me get down on bended knee.
It doesn’t demand that I have to believe.
It won’t torture me, for eternity.
It won’t teach me to hate or despise others.
It can’t tell me what’s right or wrong.
It won’t tell anybody that they can’t be lovers.
It’s told nobody that they don’t belong.
It won’t make me think that life is worth living; it has nothing to offer me (Yeah that’s true).
The reason Atheism offers me nothing is because I’ve never asked it to.
Atheism offers nothing because it doesn’t need to.
Religion promises everything because you want it to, you don’t need a religion or to have faith. You just want it because you need to feel safe.

I want to feel reality, and nothing more.

So Atheism offers me everything.
That religion has stolen before."
