I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,122 People

    Today, I had the distinctive honor of being

    posted on the Christian thread by our friend ironman. It amazes me the length this person is going to start arguments, Strife and has shown himself to be exactly what I hate about christians. I tolerate a lot and nor am I the loudest individual here but for %€£% sakes. I...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    All religions to me are pointless.

    You have the Christian God which is terrible and has a book filled with so many contradictions. Then Islam. Just.. *shudders*. Then you got the less bloody religions like Buddhism or Jainism. Only problem is that they make no sense and cannot be supported by evidence. At the end...

    People Should Respect!

    My words are for Christians in here, "I am an atheist". So, you go to the "I am an Atheist" experience as a Christian and write comments as you wish under people's experiences, instead of ep's being a free site which people can share their opinion freely and searching for...

    I don't know why it is considered bigoted

    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...

    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?

    religion itself. It's a nice concept. And for the most part, I don't have a problem with believers. It's the radicals that always get me. But I'm finding myself constantly having to defend certain religions. The intolerance amongst religions is just ridiculous. It's like all...

    I love that when a person posts an atheist post

    there is such support from other atheists and also the occasional believer wades in to leave a comment. Guys, the believers leaving comments is an essential part of the discussion. Believe me, when you have no opposing views the conversations die a quick death. Don't dis the...

    evolved from a common universal ancestor that was a one cell bacteria. One species that evolved was primates. Homo sapiens evolved from a primate 200,000 to 250,000 years ago. Wikapedia is one place that explains this, along with numerous others. It is sad and annoying to me...

    but jealousy is one of the seven deadly sins. Why would such a powerful being make something he feels a sin? How could he make that mistake? I guess he forgot.

    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.
