    Atheism and agnosticism We all here have had

    this conversation at one time or another. Describing, to those who don't know, what atheist and agnostic mean. Well, one of my favorite you tubers, Jaclyn Glenn, addressed this in a recent video. I share this to help explain the proper meanings of these words. http://youtu.be...

    I GUESS I AM THE ONE WHO IS INSANE.

    THE CHRISTIANS ARE THE SANE ONES. I just had a rather vivid flashback. I don't know what triggered it. It couldn't have been the Christian claiming to be an agnostic atheist earlier who threatened to take his rusty, excrement covered cutting tool and detach a certain...

    I honestly cannot comprehend how people don't

    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.

    A creepy loudmouth Youtube Pastor Josh

    Im so blessed. :) I just knocked over a whole

    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...

    The argument for or against God is difficult

    and rather irrelevant. God is about faith, science is about observation, evidence, repeatable, testable, measurable experimentation. The burden of proof falls on the believers, and it is impossible to empirically prove a negative. Most atheists are agnostic. We don't believe...

    Every atheists perhaps remember the boy

    who experienced heaven and then had a book come out right? Well turns out it was fake. He recanted his story. Ironically his parents tried hard to sell it. Allegedly most religious stores were forced to pull it from their shelves. How about that? http://www.truthrevolt.org...

    I have suffered from a variety of migraines

    since I was about 12. Through most if my teens and early 20's, most of then were "Silent" migraines, which means that I experienced other symptoms but not the massive headache pain, which made it difficult to diagnose for many years. I suffered from unexplained dizziness, nausea...

    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...

    I always feel awkward

    when a religious person finds out I don't believe in God and tells me I'm going to hell. It's like, I know you're trying to threaten me but I don't believe in hell so your threat really fell short. I feel bad about it. I know they tried their best.

    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.

    but it's really annoying when Atheists go running around telling people there is no god. That's unnecessary. Let other people believe what they want. I'm sure you don't like it when people shove their religious jargon down everyone's throats. So why are you doing the same thing...

    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?
