This Is What We Believe

I'm trying to avoid pushing too much of my beliefs into this blog past the two logos on the side (mainly to avoid limiting readers), but I saw this video posted on the TheThinkingAtheist Facebook page and found it to be really good. It addresses the question of what Atheists believe in without a god. The video is comprised of numerous video clips with Future by Colony 5 playing in the background (which isn't actually that bad a song) and the uploader has even went to the trouble of attempting to get the lips of the people featured in the clips to sync.

"This is what we believe" is based on the song Future by Colony 5, and it's a response to all those who think that we who don't follow any religious faith don't believe in anything. The video is also a tribute to all women and men who advocate a secular worldview, free from religious dogma and other supernatural beliefs, and a celebration of science and reason.

As per usual I recommend that instead of watching it embedded, click on the YouTube button to watch it in better quality on YouTube. 


  1. I've heard of the thinking atheist a few times but never really checked it out. The video was pretty interesting.

  2. Well, living in capitalist economies, aren't we to believe in money, or at least free markets? Free markets are also an abstract concept that can not be pictured.
