Atheist Quote of the Week 22

"Faith" means not wanting to know what is true.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

And wanting to know what is true is what makes us truly human - intelligent, curious, sentient. So why is not being religious and not believing in a supreme being, especially in such an age of knowledge and science, treated like something unnatural? It is more natural for humans to ask questions and seek the truth than for us to accept easy answers that are clearly not good explanations for the world around us. That attitude is a denial of the extraordinary intelligence we have and a spit in the face to the natural world that caused us to be this way.
