    I'm Glad

    Growing up whenever I had a problem I told my dad. He would just tell me lets pray about it or that's just what God wants for you. Never did I get any advice from him nor consideration. He would always blame me the bad things happen because I wasn't a perfect angel. But I was the...

    Happy, Content, Fulfilled, And More.

    I've been atheist for well over half my life. I used to be a bible (lowercase intended) thumping street preacher. It was a former Methodist minister who asked me if I read the so-called "good book" not just the parts I liked but the whole thing? I confessed I hadn't and that...

    Freedom Of Irreligion

    Atheism is intellectual freedom. For me, it is an unchained, unfettered, curious, unprejudiced, fearless way of thinking. There is nothing to hold me back, no one to tell me how to think, no fear of judgment, no reprisal, no ancient and insipid rules to break. My thoughts are...

    I became an atheist when I was in my tenth

    grade year of high school. I came from a very religious family, went to church every week, etc. But some things didn't add up at all. So I really just stopped believing that stuff. My world hasn't ended and honestly I'm a lot happier and things are a lot easier for me. It's kind...

    Today i was pondering the concept of

    consciousness and awareness. It is very strange to think that we are made up of a bunch of chemical molecules that form cells, which form our bodies. Within are brains are specialized cells we have named neurons, which function to regulate the rest of the cells of the body. They...

    No Difference In My Life, Just More Free Time

    The places like church,

    temple and mosque are nothing but social business platform. It's all about money and fame. God is just commodity sold in those places with lies and garage stories. If God was protecting you then he would have protected all those million + innocent people died in the...

    I went to church all my life till recently.

    I was raised religious and conservative. The more I got exposed to different things, the less conservative I got. I realized that not everything church said was a sin was a sin. I realized maybe my religion wasn't the only right one, then my god wasn't the only right one. I...
