    Militant Atheist

    Enough is enough! It's time to draw that line in the sand. For too long, for millennia, since man first started to form societies we have had our view of the universe tainted with religion. To say that theists have had a fair crack at the whip would be understatement in the...

    In An Overly Religious World...

    Ever since I cemented my atheistic beliefs in high school, I feel stifled in what often seems like a religion-oriented world. I know that I'm not alone in my beliefs, but it's frustrating to see hardcore religious folks negatively impact the world with their ignorance and...

    Why do Christians lie they have proof of god?

    They quite obviously don't and it's kinda funny watching them try to avoid the topic when I ask for the source of their "evidence" :P I have no problem with their belief but lying to get your point across in a debate is just lame.

    I don't get this, how come

    if we say God doesn't exist or anything like that, it's deemed offensive, but if religious people say about God(s) being magnificent and stuff like that, it's never said to be offensive to us?!

    Prayer

    For a long time, I wasn't sure whether I had sufficient claim to the word "atheist" because I never felt like I had really rejected religious indoctrination.  When I was young, my mom told me and my younger brother a little about God.  I toted books to church...

    Atheism is the only logical position.

    There is no evidence for a God, there isn't even a need for a God to exist. Logic says that God almost certainly does not exist (since it is impossible to prove a negative). Theism also has a huge problem. Believers are REJECTING logic. Can you really trust people that reject...
