Atheist Symbol Abstraction, watercolor on paper, 7"x7"

According to the Internet University of All Knowledges where I am getting my masters degree (;
I learned that Atheism is the third largest group of "religions" in the world, Christianity being the first at 2.1 billion , Islam the second at 1.5 billion,. Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist at  1.1 billion).


 Atheists  define their lifestyle as follows. An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An Atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An Atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment."
