Patheos ran a challenge for all their contributors, for each to write, in less than 200 words, why they are whatever religion/belief they are. Of course, the Christian responses far outnumber any other group, since they have more Christian sections than anything else, but so far atheists and some of the other faiths are also represented. Hopefully over time, more will contribute so it doesn't look so one sided.
So can you, in 940 characters or less (the size of ONE answer) answer the same question?Answer Question

I am an atheist because I don't believe in the existence of any gods.
I am agnostic because I know that while we can't prove the existence of any gods, we also can't prove (yet) that none exist.
I am a Secular Humanist because I advocate human, rather than religious values and have a naturalistic worldview. I believe that women should have control over their bodies, including reproductive concerns. I also believe in gender equality, and that homosexuals should have the same rights as all humans. I believe that we should be focusing on real-world problems like ending poverty, protecting our environment and promoting peace and non-violence.
That's a lot of believing for a "non-believer".
