    it's Jesus crouching in front of a little girl, asking her to trust her. He has his hand out asking for her teddy bear. She says "But I love it, God..."  He has a bigger teddybear behind his back.)Um. No thanks.I like this one.It's sentimental.My mommy gave it to me, and...

    I don't believe in god,

    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...

    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.

    God is the ultimate stalker psycho ex.

    He loves you!!! He loves you so much that he watches you all the time. He watches while you sleep. While you eat. While you lay with your SO. He loves you so much, that if you don't love him back, he will burn you forever in a fiery pit! I think we need to get a...

    So, let me get this straight.

    You think evolution is a ludicrous idea yet you fully believe some random deity in the sky created the Earth for funsies? Really?

    my daughter was running around with a Mormon

    pamphlet yesterday (must have come in the mail.) I looked at it and saw that their depiction of Jesus is a tall, handsome, white man with short cropped hair and blue eyes. these are also the guys who believe Jesus came to America right? wtf?

    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...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    There's a legitimate reason

    for why I consider polytheism to be superior to monotheism. Polytheism allows for multiple gods and goddesses to exist simultaneously. This allows for a checks and balances system observed in modern democracy. Monotheism on the other hand is the worship of only one God which...

    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.
