There seems to be an inherent notion that atheism is simply about logic and reason. While there is some merit to this notion, it in and of itself seems to imply that this is all there is to the atheist position. But we are not Vulcans, and as such we do not operate on logic alone. No matter how much we would like to think of ourselves as logic driven and enlightened people, we cannot neglect the fact that we are human and that our emotions play an important part in our beliefs or lack thereof.
So, what I would like to offer with this title is that there is indeed an emotional component to the atheist position and also that this emotional component is as valid a reason for disbelief as any logical reasoning. Throughout this book I will put forward many emotional reasons that atheists have for our disbelief and go into as much detail as I can to describe not only the reasons for these emotions, but also the impact they have on us as individuals in coming to our position.
