    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...

    Take me to Church on youtube, I quote : *All you "Christians" can say what you want, but the fact that shrimp is called an abomination in the bible SIX times more than homosexuality yet you choose to eat it and call out and ostracize gays instead? Just know you are going to...

    I have never believed in a "god".

    I want to believe, but I can't, and it is sad. I do believe in a higher power, just not a man on a cloud. I really really want to believe, but how can I?

    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...

    Atheists & Anger - A Blog By Greta Christina

    ATHEISTS AND ANGER   I want to talk about atheists and anger.   This has been a hard piece to write, and it may be a hard one to read. I'm not going to be as polite and good-tempered as I usually am in this blog; this piece is about anger, and for once I'm going to...

    1 in 3 Americans deny evolution.

    Why not deny gravity too? It's just a theory, right? http://youtu.be/0Gykz_luLR0

    I am an Atheist. I know

    that to many people it's just so cruel that I couldn't believe in a God. But you know what? I don't believe in a God, and you cannot change that. It is my choice and I will love with it. Unfortunately, some people don't seem to understand that concept. I have had a friend whom...

    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...

    Religion easily has the greatest bullsh*t story

    ever told. Think about it, religion has actually convinced people that there's an INVISIBLE MAN...LIVING IN THE SKY...who watches every thing you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten special things that he does not want you to do. And if you do...

    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?

    -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.

    I find it commendable

    that when I share with Atheists on their postings they do not trash me. They might disagree with some of what I write, but they leave my response to their "story." Most so called RCC "Christians" delete my responses. They are totally unwilling to consider any information that is...

    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.

    Born Again Atheist

    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...

    Militant Atheist

    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.

    think evolution exists. It is unfortunately something I completely cannot understand and no one has been able to explain to me why they think evolution isn't real without involving God or just plainly being stubborn and claiming the idea of evolution is idiotic.
