Profanely Happy

Not so much a group; more a state of mind. For those who achieved happiness after discarding the supernatural and for those who never knew any better.

… the happiness of an atheist is neither the vacuous enjoyment of a fool, nor the short-lived pleasure of a rogue. It is rather the expression of a disposition that has ceased to torture itself with foolish fancies, or perplex itself with useless beliefs.
Chapman Cohen

The learn'd is happy nature to explore,
The fool is happy that he knows no more.

It's finally warming up here in Detroit, even though we had a couple of days in the 80s back in March! That was a tease :)

I wish I could say I am 'profanely happy', but life isn't very calm right now. My son just moved out with his GF and my 10 month old granddaughter and my dad is back in the hospital with a staph infection :(

On the plus side, I will be applying for a full time librarian position where I am currently working and hoping, hoping, hoping I get it!

I hope you're doing well, Steph, and glad you're looking forward to summer. What movies do you want to see this summer?

Ah, that fireplace looks so inviting!  Just under 50 degrees here in Detroit, but already feeling chilled to the bone!  lol

Lucky cat! :)

Great quote, Steph!  Something I need to work on and keep in mind :)

Wouldn't it be more fun to share images as well as text?

Unfortunately every time I try to share one of my Photobucket images, I get the message "there is no file at that URL." Not so happy at the moment.

I was thrilled and surprised at the content feeling of freedom and relief I experienced once I was finally about to admit to myself that I did not believe in religion and have no use for it in my life :D

I can't really say that being an atheist has anything to do with being happy. I've more or less always been one. It has shaped who I am so in that sense it definitely has an impact. However, the things that truly make me happy, Family and Friends, I assume I would have regardless. It is interesting that the countries that have highest level of satisfaction in their lives are those that are the least religious. The stuff about atheists being depressed by their very nature is certainly bullshit. :)

Why yes I have been happier since I realized I was an atheist. It was like having a blindfold removed. I no longer felt the open-minded confusion I used to feel when I tried to believe conflicting things that deep down I didn't really believe.
