Polution: 14 Heartbreaking Photos That Will Inspire You to Recycle

I realize atheism

"is a lack of belief in gods." "Atheists have a lack of belief in gods and supernatural beings." Atheists do not have a common belief system, sacred scripture or atheist Pope. Atheists often disagree on many issues and ideas. Atheists come in a variety of shapes, colors, beliefs, convictions, and backgrounds. We are as unique as our fingerprints."

One thread that seems to percolate thoughout the athiest community and in individual atheists is the horror of the degradation of the Earth and its resources caused by human activity. News of human-caused pollution comes to us from many different sources. 

14 Heartbreaking Photos That Will Inspire You to RecycleYou begin to realize the massive global impact we human beings have.

Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods. Atheists do not pray to a god to clean up these messes, nor do we pray for guidance from some superhuman power in the ether. We recognize a problem when it exists, we identify the cause of the problem and we set to work to make changes in our own behavior and encourage others to take a serious look at their behaviors and the consequences of thoughtless discarding of waste materials. 

I see no evidence of any superhuman power coming to save us from our irresponsibility, nor do I see a god who hears prayers of empowerment. If there is going to be any change in what happens to the Earth, we humans have to see what happens, identify the causes and take decisive action.

I'm with Randy.  I truly can't understand why so many people don't care how trashy our planet looks, or how much harm they do to life.
