NPR : There is No God (Penn Jilette)

Excellent commentary by Penn Jillette on atheism. This is my “belief system” too.

“Believing there is no God means the suffering I’ve seen in my family, and indeed all the suffering in the world, isn’t caused by an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent force that isn’t bothered to help or is just testing us, but rather something we all may be able to help others with in the future. No God means the possibility of less suffering in the future.”
