“I don't need to believe in the existence of a supreme being, its final judgement on my behaviour, with the fear of eternal damnation if I do wrong, to make me behave with kindness, compassion or humility; or for it to temper the darker human emotions, behaviours and weaknesses that I have. I resent the implication that I, as a non-believer, am counter to all that is deemed to be admirable in the human spirit because I don't follow a certain belief system.”
