I Am An Atheist

    I grew up Catholic,became mormon in my 20's

    and talked with many people of other faiths. Read the bible many times and other books of religious topics and soon began to question things and was told I lacked faith and would be punished. Lost my faith and found my myself in the journey. I live my life being a human, not...

    When I heard that all 50 states would recognize

    gay marriage, I wanted to cry with happiness. Just imagining thousands of people in Louisiana now being able to marry their partner gave me so much joy. Except that Louisiana is withholding marriage licenses. They're trying to fight. Our wonderful governor is claiming, and I...

    Christians want the right to badger the non

    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.

    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...

    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...

    when I was a theist I used to believe plenty of

    Militant Atheist

    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...

    I've always been fascinated by religion,

    and I hate arguing with people over it. I just accept people's views as best I can - what's the point in arguing? For all we know, ANYTHING could be true. What I don't like is when people tell me that either I'm going to Hell or that it's easier to believe in a God, because...

    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.

    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?
