I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,719 People

    Faith is not proof. Simple

    as that. "Faith and feelings are the warm marrow of evil. Unlike reason, faith and feelings provide no boundary to limit any delusion, any whim. They are virulent poison, giving the numbing illusion of moral sanction to every depravity ever hatched. Faith and feelings are the...

    I am god! I created man to be imperfect.

    I made man in a way so they can not help but to sin. Then I made those sins morally wrong. Then the only way I can to forgive the flawed creatures I made for breaking the laws I chose is to impregnate a young woman with myself so she can give birth to me so I can grow up and be...

    So, let me get this straight.

    You think evolution is a ludicrous idea yet you fully believe some random deity in the sky created the Earth for funsies? Really?

    What if Mary got knocked up by some guy on a

    I Think, Therefore I Am (an Atheist)

    I am an atheist, and because of that I believe life is precious. Saying life is precious might sound like something a pro-life religious person would say, so allow me to explain my reasoning. I believe that this short life we are blessed with is all that we will ever have...

    Born Atheist

    I was watching my baby girl in awe in this morning while reading the comments on my last EP story and could help but think.  My eight month old daughter is delightfully happy; I'm sure as most eight month olds.  She is cruising and taking a few steps on her own...

    Islam will become the religion of peace

    when it runs out of people to kill and women to subjugate. Sorry Muslims but you have at least 5.5 billion people to murder before you can be considered peaceful.

    Imagine how much better Christianity would be

    if it was Taco Bell. The Doritos locos taco sent down his son the chicken quesadilla to die for our sins so we don't go to taco john's when we die. I think I might just be hungry.

    I am so very tired of being insulted

    or called hateful. I'm posting my thoughts, supported by the evidence, in an appropriate forum for them. How is this hateful or trolling. Maybe I need to take a break from ep. I just don't get it. It's just so frustrating.

    Hi I'm an atheist. Apparently I have no morals.

    Because you know, I couldn't figure out murder is wrong without a 2000 year old badly translated and rewritten book to tell me that. That's why I kill people daily.......................... Oh wait......... I don't? Hmmmmmm. I wonder why?

    I've noticed a common argument

    when I'm talking religion with a Christian. They always bring up that one of us must be right, theoretically. Either it's God or nothing. They're in the clear because if there is a God, they receive no punishment but if there isn't, then nothing happens to them. So, obviously, I...

    -The idea that Atheists bash God is like saying

    that florists bash blue daffodils, we cannot bash that which we have seen no evidence to support the existence of. We are guilty simply of scepticism toward the hitherto unproven idea that God exists, nothing more.
