During loss and tragedy, theists will often say "you are in my thoughts and prayers" to express their support and compassion. What is a good expression for an atheist? Could it be "you are in my heart and mind"? What expression do you use to share your support and compassion?
Thanks in advance for sharing. - Doug
Another word-play: god is not a noun but a verb.
OK, if god is a verb, then god is action. I interpreted that to mean god, as a noun, does not exist. When I feel the soft breeze of spring, or the warmth of the sun, or the joy of being with someone I love, or eating raspberry jam on my toast, the experiences of being alive and conscious of my senses provides me participation of joy.
Here in earthquake country, when I feel the soft breeze of spring and the warmth of the sun, I figure Ma and Pa Nature are doing their mischief somewhere else.
