I think Brigit Clarke-Smith is wonderful. There are many non-believers of all ages but as pointed out here, it can be very isolating as a senior in an environment where it's presumed you are religious.
Athiest simply means not believing in a supernatural power. Morality comes very naturally to most of us.
When a person is a non-believer, they are expressing what they feel is true. The alternative is to fake it.
There are plenty of people who say they are religious but do not agree with their creed or harbor great doubts. A group like this one at the senior's residence would allow some freedom to explore these thoughts without punishment.
Cheers for Brigit!
