I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,854 People

    I am openly secular. Today,

    April 23 2015, is openly secular day. A day for those who are openly secular to speak out. To tell at least one person, who they are, and why they are secular. To remove the stigmas and misconceptions commonly associated with it. One of the ways I have chosen to do this today...

    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...

    You know I've always wanted to ask a Christian

    where God came from? Because if what they say is correct and God did create the world then who created God? I'm pretty sure they won't have an answer :)

    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...

    Haha so the book Awkward Moments Children's

    Bible recently had a fiasco going. There was a teacher who decided to hand out bibles in a public school so what did Awkward Moments do? They sent out their "own" illustrated bibles. And it isn't their own version, they put the bibles own verses in their book and it ended in an...

    God Saved Me

    One single person from the upper floors of the twin towers survived.  Horribly burned, when the lone survivor left the hospital after more than a year, he made a brief statement to the media saying that it was a miracle that he survived and that god has saved him. What...

    So today I was going through the explore section

    and came across a post in the I Believe in God group. Now I never respond to these because it is not the forum for my views. In truth I rarely even read them, but this caught my eye. It was a young gay man, who is Christian and felt bad about it. But he knew god loves him. Some...

    "If there were a DNA test to see

    if a baby is gay in the womb, would religious people be for or against aborting it?" Food for thought.

    Isn't it hilarious when you just discuss with

    someone about a religious topic and they block you? Jazzzpiano is obviously extremely insecure in his "belief" of creationism.

    Jesus177 has made a prophecy!

    She says that I will go blind within the next 3 days (by Friday the 23rd) and will only be healed by the power of prayer from a true Christian. She even said that if I do not go blind that she will admit that god doesn't exist. I hope that she will play honestly as I will be...

    God admitted a lot of times in the bible he

    regretted making humanity like I don't know how often a person can say "I hate you" and then your still willing to give unconditional love to someone who thinks you are dirty. It is kind of pathetic. I would not want to waste my time worshipping something who regrets me. That is...

    and someone said that I was going to hell for being atheist and if I didn't believe in Jesus I wouldn't go to heaven. I asked them if someone killed 500 people and didn't apologize to god but believed in Jesus they would goto heaven. They said yes because in gods eyes killing 50...

    I'm impressed to a very negative extent

    when someone shoves religion in your face, you argue with provable fact to the contrary, you are assaulted with excerpts from the bible which are not valid in such a discussion, and then, when they have no reply, they see to it that the entire debate is erased. One has to...

    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...

    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?

    Saw a billboard, "Friends don't let friends be

    without Jesus." Actually, real friends should probably just accept the fact that maybe, just maybe, you're okay without Jesus. Also, what makes it okay for someone to tell another that they should "Find Jesus." Isn't that a little condescending?

    I love it when I'm in a "conversation" with a

    bigoted believer who is trying to use a Bible passage to justify their discrimination against me, and I give them a link to one of their own Web sites that explains what the passage really means, and the conversation thread mysteriously disappears.

    and he basically said that vast majority of Christians are going to hell anyway for angrily refusing to turn down a free joint and relax. God doesn't like to kick it with stressed out people who are always at work telling others who's in and who's not, so he finally got sick of...

    or closed minded to say that religion is a myth, an urban legend, a lie perpetuated by the wealthy and powerful. -- Let's be honest with ourselves. If an adult believes in Santa, they are not practicing rational thought. Why does religion get a pass, and we aren't allowed to...

    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.

    when someone asks an atheist, "why are you so against God?". What part of "atheist" is unclear? I'm not against God, I don't hate God, I don't worship Satan, because I believe none of it. I'm not anti God, I just don't have the time of day for it, quite honestly. I've always...
