    I don't believe in any deity

    or that any exist. That doesn't mean I believe that none exist though. And I don't know whether any exist or not, I wouldn't ever claimed I did. I just simply don't believe, and I can't force myself to change.

    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...

    My Life And Becoming An Atheist.

    I've been going to church all my life, and unfortunately, at the age of 20, I still am. It's the same church that I have been going to since birth. My mother is a christian who takes the bible pretty literally. My dad, on the other hand, considers himself agnostic. He still goes...

    I'm just really skeptical.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I'm a closet atheist

    and also a bisexual. My parents already are bereft because I left the LDS church and often say things like, "You believe in God though, right? You believe in heaven, right?" And think that being anything but straight means being sick in the brain. How can I come out? What do I...

    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.

    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...
