Dan Barker on Atheism Being Positive

"I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil–you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality,
peace and joy.Trust yourself."

Dan Barker in "Losing Faith in Faith"
