A humane question

The concerns of atheism are, to some extent, valid enough, although I believe that the question of whether god exists must be nuanced to whether this-kind-of-particular-god exists (more often than not, an all-knowing, all-powerful, highly-transcendent, sub-biblical god is in picture — and, yes, I don’t believe in such kind of god). Nevertheless, I do think that we need to ask the complementary question as well, that is, on whether we exist as human beings. Sometimes, the problem lies not so much on atheism or anti-theism, but on a-humanism or anti-humanism. We resist to be humans.
