Season 3 begins. I talk to Wil, a friend and fellow Atheist about why we became Atheists, and why we eventually stopped being angry at Religious people, and learned that Empathy and understanding are the preferable way to live.

Episode Length: 59:25
Theme Music: "Noise in my Head" by Clarknova
Intro Music: "Nothing (Anthro Remix)" by Portal
Outro Music: "Nothing" by Portal

Medium article:
"A Separation of Friends and Faith"

Lyrics to intro/outro song (which was one of the key influencing factors in me walking away from religion):

"Nothing" by Portal

I walked ahead of the game, burned the third eye, I believed in nothing
Sold product in your name, I watched the sky, still believed in nothing
Empty hands I walked encaged, but always on the line I believed in nothing
Watched the hand unleash its rage, you'll learn in time to believe in nothing

As long as I can belong
As long as I can be strong
Though the call of faith is so loud
I've searched for truth for too long
So long

No we must never try to avert our eyes and take the offer
No we can never try to arm ourselves and push away
No we can never cry, give up the faith when the going's rougher
No we can never try to arm ourselves and pull away

You're a dying breed my friend, you'll never live your life as though he cared for you
But my faith will never bend. I've got friends and loved ones to help me stumble through
You wear your silver chain, but the cross won't stop the lies, you believe in nothing
That's me on your silver chain, I wrote the book but I believe in nothing

No we must never try to forgive the sins and revoke your offer
No we can never try to arm ourselves and push away
We're all too satisfied, these trials make all our skin and spirits rougher
No we can never try to clear the shelves and pull away
