Through the Eyes of an Atheist

This Blog’s theme, as followers know, is about Empathy and Universal Benevolence. That means that one should try to see life through the eyes of others, even non believers. Without theists at least trying to understand this, the world will never find peace. And to say that the world will never find peace anyway is to close one’s mind to the possibilities, to be part of the problem, and to help ensure it may not happen.

This video is perhaps the best presentation of reality as seen through the eyes of an atheist. I have never seen better.


— Max T. Furr is author of The Empathy Imperative, a philosophical novel exploring the nature of Justice and mercy, and demonstrating why religion often prevents us from extending those concepts to others.

Was Descartes wrong, and God was a deceiver after all? What would the world be like if empathy, not self interest or religious dogma, were our primary motivating force?

    I agree we need to see conscientiously outside our perspective, Max. And thank you for putting up my site as a page. I really appreciate the support.
