    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...

    I dont know... For me a God is something

    This happened last year: This woman was going

    off about how Tosh.0 should be canceled because she found it offensive. I told her that I found 700 Club offensive, and going by her logic, it should be canceled. She blocked me, but not before sharing some of her Christian wisdom, which included a few F-bombs, and stating she...

    As I've said before, I don't hate religious

    folk, only the ones who try to convert me, threaten me with Hell, or on some rare occasions, send me death threats. Hating someone just because they're not an Atheist like me would also mean I would hate some of my family. My mother, while she doesn't believe in organised...

    What Atheism Mean To Me - A Short Essay

    Atheism is liberty.  Its freedom of free-thought.  Its freedom to explore, learn, and educate.  Its freedom to love, laugh, and live without hatred or bigotry.  Its freedom of speech; freedom to criticize and analyze all subjects without limitations.  ...

    Militant Atheist

    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.

    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...
