    I dislike talking to Christians about

    transsexualism. Even the ones that attempt to be nice about it. The one I usually get from family is "God does not make mistakes." Correct. A possibly nonexistent being written to be perfect in every way does not make mistakes because he was written that way. Human nature...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I believe in evolution

    and that we evolved from primates, now this is another reason why? When we were young babies we could tell primates apart easily, when we got older we couldn't because there was no need to use that skill and we lost it!

    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...

    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.

    if we say God doesn't exist or anything like that, it's deemed offensive, but if religious people say about God(s) being magnificent and stuff like that, it's never said to be offensive to us?!

    The argument for or against God is difficult
