Why I Call Myself A Humanist More Than An Atheist

Technically yes, I am an atheist. I don't believe in any kind of supernatural higher power who created everything and has the whole world in its hands. Neither do I believe in any sort of afterlife.

However, when talking about my "religious" beliefs, I prefer to call myself a Humanist for various reasons. The first is atheism just focuses on one question: Is there a God? Humanism is a way of life. There's no creed, of course, but it does describe a way of life, which is the closest thing I have to a religion.

Plus, if you've ever been to /r/atheism, there are a lot of sexist, queerphobic douchebags making us atheists look bad!
