This YouTube video is lovely

It's about what an atheist believes. He wants to tell people that being an atheist does not mean that you have no beliefs. Good for him.

I agree with him on them all. It can be my Credo too.

How beautiful Bags! Mine too!

nanaej Tue 21-Aug-12 18:21:32

grin I like that too.

Really lovely! Although I wasn't able to read the page which went around in a circle as my iPad is on the auto right way up setting!

Thank you Bags that is beautiful.

This made me smile. This bought tears to my eyes. This dovetailed my thinking and feeling. Thanks for the post B.

Wherever we all end up, what a lovely world it would be if we followed this way of living our lives.

Ariadne Tue 21-Aug-12 18:44:10

That meant so much to me. Thank you, Bags xx

I don't care for the saying, "Charity begins at home".

And I didn't like the smug look on the fat bloke's face at the end.

I wonder why people need to put this stuff up on the internet. Isn't it their own business, what they believe in? Why should we care? confused

You can find it all better expressed in a good poetry book.

He's possibly a right little Hitler in real life.

Greatnan Tue 21-Aug-12 18:55:20

There is not much that makes me cry, but this brought a tear to my eye - I agree with every single word. Thank you, Bags, for posting this.

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 18:55:43

Or he could have been under the influence of something. grin

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 18:57:39

I *don't believe^ it brought a tear to your eye Greatnan.

Why would it? confused

Greatnan Tue 21-Aug-12 18:58:55

Jingle, try it on elsewhere, you are not going to get anything from me. I don't think it is forum etiquette to accuse another member of lying.

Butternut Tue 21-Aug-12 19:05:09

J I care for what you feel, and I care that we feel differently about B's post.
I'm pleased that many can access the internet, if it does no harm to others.
The world is my home.
To my ears, it was poetry.

JO4 - sorry but what a daft comment. Why wouldn't it???

Thank you Bags, very moving, and every word applies to how I feel too. Wonderful smile

Ariadne Tue 21-Aug-12 19:10:23

jingl The next slide after "charity begins at home" says "The world is my home." Couldn't have put it better myself. Everything I believe in.

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:13:19

It's not often used like that though is it Ariadne?

Greatnan. hmm

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:17:08

Oh, I see what you mean Ariadne. Sorry.

I'll leave this thread. I just hate that kind of stuff on you tube. Just makes me feel suspicious.

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:23:43

Actually no!

I hate that video because it's quite obviously another dig at Christianity. Why does he have to refer to his 'Atheist' beliefs. Why not just head the video 'I believe this'?

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:24:38

And I didn't like the silly illustration of an angel. Looked like a xmas decoration of the light-up kind.

JO4 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:25:13

I'm not staying on this thread. There's good telly on tonight.

absentgrana Tue 21-Aug-12 19:25:57

I just wish he hadn't chosen that piece of Schubert which I really dislike, but then I'm not very enthusiastic about other pieces of Schubert. The words, however, were moving.

Jingle Why are you so cross about this?

Ella46 Tue 21-Aug-12 19:27:44

I thought it was very moving too.

Greatnan Tue 21-Aug-12 19:30:17

I must have been watching a different video - I didn't pick up one word of criticism or unkindness.
