    Born Atheist

    I was watching my baby girl in awe in this morning while reading the comments on my last EP story and could help but think.  My eight month old daughter is delightfully happy; I'm sure as most eight month olds.  She is cruising and taking a few steps on her own...

    A quote from the Roman Juvenal

    who thought religion was ridiculous: "Just hark at those loud denials, observe the assurance of the lying face He'll swear by the Sun's rays, by Jupiter's thunderbolts, by the lance of Mars, by the arrows of Delphic Apollo, by the quiver and shafts of Diana, the virgin huntress...

    All these Christians coming on my post,

    it's quite annoying really. Why are they looking at atheist post if their not atheists? Why do they care so much about what is more than likely a photoshopped *****. Get over yourselves and let me watch "The Theory of Everything" in peace

    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.

    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?

    Every atheists perhaps remember the boy

    who experienced heaven and then had a book come out right? Well turns out it was fake. He recanted his story. Ironically his parents tried hard to sell it. Allegedly most religious stores were forced to pull it from their shelves. How about that? http://www.truthrevolt.org...

    Imagine that we could revive a well-educated

    Christian of the fourteenth century. The man would prove to be a total ignoramus, except on matters of faith. His beliefs about geography, astronomy, and medicine would embarrass even a child, but he would know more or less everything there is to know about God.
