I am from Shreveport, La. and I have been observing the past weeks' response to Hurricane Gustav. One thing struck me as I watched the news on the storm and listened to the stories of refugees. The thing that I thought was most interesting is that the government called on churches to assist in aiding the refugees. To take them in temporary shelters and many churches are prepared to do such a thing. I don't know of any atheist organizations who were first in line to help those that are needy. I am not saying there are any. I'm just saying it seemed they were conspicuously absent.
The point is, that a belief in God prompts believers to help their fellow man especially in time of need. The logical position of atheism seems that their main concern is not for their fellow man first but for themselves first. At least that's the way I see it. Then again I could be wrong.
