Team Good Beyond Belief
A 2007 Gallup poll found that 53% of Americans would not vote for an atheist for president.
The commonly held belief, here in the USA, that atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and the non-religious in general lack moral beliefs and a moral framework in their lives is distressing and harmful. Many atheists, agnostics, secular humanists and non religious people have a carefully thought out personal moral code that stresses honesty, integrity, care for others and critical thinking. Many of us care very deeply indeed about the communities in which we live. We don't feel that it is necessary to believe in a God in order to behave in ways that show love and care towards others. We don't believe that people will only do the right thing when they are "forced" to do the right thing by the imposition of an external moral code.
There are many religious people who also believe in being "good" for the same reasons that non-believers do; namely that we feel compassion and empathy for others and we would like the world to be a better place for everyone.
So ... if you are a non-believer, then here is your chance to show the world that non-believers care about their community as much as believers do. ... and if you are a believer then here is your chance to help counteract the prejudice that non-believers are immoral and uncaring and to help build some community amongst all people, regardless of religious belief.
