I don't consider being an stheist as being a comfort in anything. For me, it's just a non-belief in god(s). That's it. It's not a fallback religion.

This. Being human is an existential wrestle. Religion didn't invent it. My comfort is my humanity

I have to agree. I find no comfort in atheism because atheism isn't anything more than not believing in gods.

I suppose. "Yeah, things are shit, but at least I'm not a delusional idiot."

I find strength in relying on myself. It makes every achievement greater and every sorrow a challenge to overcome so that I can make myself better. What can you learn from sorrow if you just whine to the all powerful? Work to understand whatever caused your time of sorrow and you will be a better person for it. I know it's sad, but sad things are a part of life.

Atheism doesn't comfort me in a time of sorrow, but it does motivate me to help myself. Rather than looking to a higher power to help me overcome a situation I do what I can to help myself.

I find great comfort in my lord's loving decree. I take solace in the eternal wisdom handed down by his prophet.

For me, atheism is not a comfort, just a lack of belief in any god. For comfort, I seek my family/friends and those around me who can love and support me.

It's good that you don't use fake sky gods as a mental crutch, it means you're not weak minded. But there are still many simpletons who do that.

I consider my atheism a lack of belief in a god. When I want comfort, I turn to my own abilities to resolve a situation, if that doesn't suffice, then I turn to my loved ones.
