It depends on what sort of atheist you are. Sounds like one with social issues - you have morals and you have an image of the Cosmos. As long as you
are tolerant of other viewpoints they should welcome you and solicit your opinions.
Once I heard a Rabbi on the radio - he was talking to a friendly atheist who was trying gently to pick an argument.
The atheist confronted the RAbbi with saying: "Well, but there's this thing though, I just don't believe in God."
The Rabbi quickly said, "I don't either."
The atheist person was flabbergast. He asked back, honestly, without sarcasm:
"Well, with all due respect, aren't YOU supposed to believe in God - perhaps it's part of your job description?"
The Rabbi replied: "I just don't believe in the God YOU don't believe in."
So welcome. Buddhists turn it upside down and most are atheists.
There are atheist spiritualists, occultists and mediums in America - they happen to be left-wing thinkers at the same time.
I like differences and I like honest values and when someone can argue intelligently in the favor of human development, I bow before it.
Let's hear your views on Egypt, for example...
