I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,851 People

    I am an atheist and I am intolerant.

    I am intolerant of ignorance, hate, violence, myths, liars, swindlers, people who are wealthy asking for money from the poor. Today I saw a survey that said that 60+% of Christians support the CIAs enhanced interrogation. This I will not tolerate! It is bad enough that their...

    I find it amusing that

    when people find out I'm an Atheist they assume I have no morals or ethics.

    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...

    This one time when I was taking a dump in a

    hotel I was staying at, I needed something to read... I saw a bible next to me and looked at a few pages. Apparently... the world is 6000 years old and flat. Hmm. So I guess dinosaurs didn't live millions of years ago. Could it be that humans used T-Rexes to help build the...

    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'll never fully understand hypocrites,

    How can christians, serve in ministry, say chrism things and yet be having affairs, sleeping with people they are not married to and judging. At the end of the day, we're just all humans trying to find a purpose, it's just some of us don't hide behind a crutch

    If you was in a serious relationship with a

    believer of god, lets say you had children also. Would you allow them to teach the children about god/make them go to church?

    I am a Christian. I also have friends

    that are atheists. Even though we don't always agree, when it comes to that, I really appreciate our friendship. Whoever says that Christians and Atheists can't be friends, don't have a clue of what they are talking about.

    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.

    They say Atheist's have no sense of humor

    I don't get this, how come

    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?!

    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...

    The Day I Became An Atheist

    So I considered commenting on a few "I am a

    Christian" posts but decided that I would not agree with them and it would end up being rude and pointless. It took me half a second to come to this conclusion. So why do they continue to comment their crap on our posts?

    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.

    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...
