    Why I Am An Athiest

    Nothing should ever be considered to be absolute truth regardless of wether it is wrong or right, because if it is wrong you would never be able to tell.

    Ok I Love This And Have To Share It!

    So I just have to share this with you because too many of us take ourselves too seriously! I'm not an insomniac but the rest fits. So when a friend told it to me, it stuck.  What does a dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac do? Stay up all night contemplating whether...

    My Adventure In A Protestant Church

    Well, it happens that I have a girlfriend who was raised Catholic and Protestant by her parents. I guess the only reasons we work is because we are both tolerant and she is not that religious. Anyway, the other day she told me that she wanted to go to church, but she wanted me...

    Some Atheist Stuffs.

    I've never really believed, I don't think. I grew up in a church going family and went basically every Sunday, but I don't think I ever bought into it whole heartedly. Eventually I just kind of labeled myself an atheist when pressed on the question in a chat, then in my first...

    But Putting 'athiest' Down In a Hospital Admittance Form Once Got Me In a Lot of Trouble!

    When I was about 5 years old, I remember going home from School and declaring to my Mother that there 'couldn't be any such thing as a God, because you cannot see/touch/hear Him or Her'. Precocious much?! Over the years, I refined my belief system, for a variety of reasons...

    Naturally Skeptical

    The thing about being a strong atheist is that you believe there's no God. I however, like to be skeptical. One thing I know about skeptics, they want to be proven wrong. They like being objective about things rather than just taking them at face value. When it comes to existence...

    I don't really believe in the Christian idea of a God, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that there isn't some higher power or being—whether it be a spiritual one or ~aliens~ or something completely different. I hope there's something bigger than us out there, but I don't...

    No one can ever really know what is the truth.

    I believe we can eliminate certain things though. Of course, I don't think there's a higher power. Afterlife? Maybe. But my ideas about that are extremely complex. I'm sure there's a different group for that. I'll go into details later. I love not having a religion.

    and Anti-theists as much as I get frustrated with Gnostic Theists and Pro-Theists. Can't people just accept that they don't know whether a theistic god exists? I have no problem with people believing what they want as long as they agree that they do not know.
