    Is this a real question? That's like asking if an atheist can be a good person.

    I think this picture should settle the matter once and for all:

    Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.

    Well, sometimes people might need to lie in order to, for example, protect a loved one from the trauma of finding out that their child in fact died years ago and that they're hallucinating. But there are many other lies that I think we all can live without in the world, and those are the lies that bring hatred between others (for example, the propaganda created by Hitler against Jews and other people he deemed 'imperfect' in his twisted mind).

    Again - anyone can be decent in actions, I am asking about intent. An atheist doesn't necessary have a persistent all-encompassing ulterior motive for being good - a religious person does.

    What about "it makes me feel like a "good" person when I'm kind to others"?

    There are plenty of people who pride themselves on their "righteousness" whether it motivated by good favor from a deity or from a desired self-image independent of religion/spirituality.

    Many atheists see each human as worthy of kindness and respect, and they act accordingly.


    Just like many religious people do. They see people as they believe God sees them. Deserving of love.

    I know the OP sounds like a silly question, but there are a lot of reasons to ask it. I've been religious and I remember thinking that atheists are fundamentally different in a way that is frightening. Being non religious now, there are people I can't trust, because to them I am just somebody to convert. If those are the types of people you've run into, and if you've had bad experiences, you would wonder...
