Digt om ateisme af Richard Coughlan

"Atheism" - by Richard Coughlan

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 got 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 nice.
It's never inspired or excited 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 everything I achieve.
It won't make me good 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 you think that life is worth living.
It has nothng to offer me, that's true.
But the reason Atheism offers me nothing,
is because I've never asked it to.

Atheism offers nothing,
because it doesn't need to.
Religious 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.
