The Power of Rational Thought by VulcanMassageBadIdea The Power of Rational Thought by VulcanMassageBadIdea
This just came to me, I thought I had to share it! I have been an atheist for a few months now, and I have found that the universe is so big! It is so full of wonder and beauty and total epicness like red shift or quantum theory. This is a picture of our galactic center--it shows Sagittarius (with the Milky Way center and M8/M20 area on the left) to Scorpius (with colorful Antares and Rho Ophiuchus region on the right) and cat paw nebula (red nebula at the bottom). I got the picture from [link] which has a much better picture and is fun to look around.

Seems most commenters here are missing the point of this, which is the "belief" part. As in, the atheists universe has no god in it in which to believe so its really a play on the phrase "beauty beyond belief". It's meant to be pointing out you don't need the belief in anything to simply appreciate the beauty of the universe.

You do realize that many/most theists are able to derive just as much pleasure and enjoyment from the exact same things as atheists? They just attribute the origin and existence of it's beauty to a different source than atheists. To them it's a feat by an artist not a sensation of sensory enjoyment inside of a concrete chemical reaction.

Atheism is not about beauty, about preferring one thing to another. Atheism is about being stronger than the huge brainwashings of any kind.

Yes! And being strong and recognizing that strength in others can be beautiful.

The Universe is beautiful--I love the colors and the shapes. :D However, I don't see how this can elong to only atheists--I believe that God created the Universe with al its wonders for us to explore and marvel at. :D I still really like this picture, though~! :D

It doesn't belong only to atheists. I mean that we don't believe that a god created everything, and the universe is still beautiful (and it was sort of a pun XD). I am glad that you can still appreciate nature's beauty! And thanks for being civil and not hating! :)

Of course! :D I love all people, and, despite what most people seem to think, TRUE Christians don't yell and shout just because someone doesn't agree with what they believe--that would go completely against Jesus' teachings! :D
Anyway, I still love the picture. :D Best of luck with fuure deviations~! :D
