I classify myself as a humanist, as well as an atheist. I believe solely in human values. I do not rely on a God to help me with my problems, instead trusting reason and personal experience. While I myself do not believe in the presence of a God or gods, I will never try to convince a person of religious faith to change their views. If your religion makes you happy, I would prefer you keep it. But if I am not going to try to change your mind, I would appreciate if the same courtesy is taken toward me and my own beliefs. I will be as accepting and supportive of your religion as I can, but please do not try to force it upon me. I appreciate being given the chance to assert my own beliefs (or lack thereof) without being lectured that I will burn in Hell unless I repent. Thank you and have a nice day.
