← You have to “like” lots of things to fight against one big “dislike”

My comment on the understanding that Atheism does not provide "comfort" to people as religious world-views do is summed up well in a song by one of my favorite industrial music artists:

"Let Me Be Your Armor" by Assemblage 23

Let me take the fall. Let me take the blame. Let me carry you from hell to home again.

Let me walk for you, when your legs are weak. Let me find the words for you when you can't speak.

Refrain: Let me be your armor. Let me be your shield. Let me take away the pain you feel. (your armor) Let me be the light that guides your way through darkest night. Let me be your armor.

Let me take the blows that were meant for you. Let me help you with the trials you're going through.

Let me keep you safe from the world outside. Let me wipe away the tears that fill your eyes.


Let me keep you from experience you need. Let me bind you with my selfishness and greed.

Let me stifle you. Let me have control. Let me smother every aspect of your soul.
